We took a Food & Wine walking tour on a Saturday night with our jovial and enthusiastic guide Alessandro. Being a native of Genoa, he knows the city’s past and present extremely well and can fill you in on the larger historical context, as well as th local anecdotes and curiosities. That aside, he is a lovely and lively person and the perfect guide to show you around the city. The tour was well-planned and included some of the great sites that Genoa offers, as well as several ones off the beaten track that would be hard to find without a native of the city. Alessandro was also ready to personalise his tour to our interests and generously took us to other places of interest not on his itinerary. The culinary stop over’s were carefully chosen in advance to give you the best idea of the local delicacies ( focaccia, trofie al pesto, farinatta), complemented by a sample of regional Ligurian wine at a Harbour-side Enoteca and a desert at the end. Overall, one couldn’t ask for a better introduction to the city and if you’re planning on visiting the city, Alessandro’s Soul of Genoa walks cannot be recommended highly enough.
