Food tour in Genoa

A culinary tour is a must-do food experience that can be combined with a site visit.

Liguria has always been a land of sea but also of mountains. The scent of the woods mixes with that of the sea and the result is a unique cuisine in the world.Light, delicate but with an incomparable taste that offers the curious visitor a riot of colors and flavors that are already a delight for the eyes when walking through the shops of Genoa or the villages of the Riviera.

During our food tour in Genoa accross the narrow roads of the historical centre of Genoa we will have time to explore and discover the flavours and the recipies of our traditional Cuisine of Liguria.
