Did you know that Frank Sinatra loved pesto and had it sent to him directly from Genoa? Yes, because only in Genoa can you taste original pesto, unique and without equals, given that its main ingredient, basil, must be the variety with small leaves that grows on the heights above Prà, and it is a DOP product. An ideal sauce for trenette, trofie, spaghetti and many other types of pasta.   But also, why not?, a nice big spoonful of pesto added to the typical minestrone di verdura alla genovese which is heavenly.

If you feel like trying a very sophisticated dish, Cappon Magro will surely delight you. Originally a peasant dish used for days of penitence, today it is a triumph of ingredients including fish, vegetables, shrimp, and delicious sauces that join to create an extraordinary dish.

Genoa is also the historical capital of street food: any moment of the day is good for tasting  focaccia; try dunking it in your cappuccino and you will discover something marvelous. If you decide to take a walk along the boardwalk of Pegli, try the farinata made with chickpea flour, scrumptious.

Genoa is this and much more.  Navigate the site, discover what the city has to offer and organize your stay in Genoa.
