This private tour will take you to the most beautiful spots in the historic center of Genoa, and introduce you to some of the most interesting historic artisanal food shops.
The city of Genoa has many tantalizing secrets waiting to be revealed. While the city is famous for its pesto and its proximity to the Ligurian Riviera, you may also have heard of its splendid historic center, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, because of its 16th-century palaces and its sheer size: it is the largest historic center in all of Europe. Hidden in these labyrinthine streets there are treasures waiting for you to discover: small shops doing business for hundreds of years that offer everything from artisanal food to local street fare nestled among gorgeous buildings and narrow pedestrian streets that lead down to the port.
This private tour will take you through the scenic medieval center of Genoa, showing you the most beautiful and interesting buildings, while stopping for a taste of authentic fare at various points. You will go to a traditional friggitoria (store where they sell fried foods) that serves frisceu (the traditional Genovese croquette filled with herbs), as well as the delicious chickpea crepe called farinata and fried seafood. You will also visit the pasticceria (pastry store) that the famous composer Giuseppe Verdi used to frequent, and conclude your tour with a visit to the historic Pietro Romanengo fu Stefano store, with its famous confetti, candied fruit, bonbons, desserts and chocolates.
