Known as one of the most extensive medieval historical centres in Europe, the heart of Genoa is a maze of alleys that unexpectedly open up into small squares, often related, like the churches overlooking them, to important noble families. The spirit of Genoa lies in the alleys, where different smells, tastes, languages ​​and cultures perfectly blend in.


This vacation contains a welcome drink, an apericena in a typical bar, a tasting of focaccia, a beer tasting, a dinner in a charming location.

You might wonder what an apericena is. When the aperitif becomes so rich that you no longer need to have dinner...Italians call it Apericena. This is the right aperitif for those who choose quality and health and want to taste the genuine products of the farmers. You are in the city but the flavors recall the countryside.

The focaccia tasting includes 6 different types of focaccia including the renown cheese one and a drink (we recommend the Chinotto, a match made in heaven).
