This private, 4 hour tour is the perfect introduction to Genova's intense flavors and culinary traditions. Your journey starts with a panoramic drive around Genova and its pastel-colored buildings dotting the cliffs along the long, curving waterfront. This port city ruled the Mediterranean during the 12th and 13th centuries and today is quickly becoming a hot spot for tourists visiting its bars, museums and fashionable shops.

Once inside the old town of Genova you will take to the city center for a small treasure hunt of little shops under the direction of your local guide. Stop at one of the oldest chocolate factories, as well as the first confectioner's shop in Italy. It will feel as though time stood still when you survey bins of alluring spices in the ancient spice shop. Throughout the tour you will discover the delightful tastes and typical flavors of Genova including its focaccia and the popular fried fish served hot from the friggitoria. And no visit to Genova is complete without tasting the pesto sauce, lovingly considered the king of Liguria!

You will also walk along the Via Garibaldi with its beautiful palazzo buildings, giving you a hint of how the rich and famous lived in centuries past. Your walking tour will end at Genova's oldest market, the Oriental market, with stalls full of meats, fish, cheeses, fruits and every type of Italian food imaginable.
