Ideas for your Ligurian food and wine tour

Tastings, cookery courses, food and wine tours, also tailor-made

Liguria is a multi-faceted region: a land of imposing mountains and gentle hills, coloured by the green of the Mediterranean maquis, overlooking the Ligurian Sea with high and jagged coastlines, interrupted by small inlets with fine sandy beaches.

Genoa is a wonderful city where the ancient mixes with the modern, history with the contemporary, colours with shadows. A city that belongs to the sea, where culture, places, Ligurian food and buildings still tell of the ancient maritime republic. An atmosphere that you can still breathe walking through the “carruggi”, narrow alleys that draw the old part of Genoa. Here you will find the Strade Nuove and the Palazzi dei Rolli complex, an extraordinary 16th century urban planning work.

The Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets, the Gulf of Tigullio, Genoa and Paradise Gulf, the Riviera delle Palme and the Riviera dei Fiori form the famous Ligurian coastline, which stretches from Ameglia to Ventimiglia for more than 300 km. Along this route you will find the most famous places in Liguria such as Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo, Sestri Levante, with its enchanting Baia del Silenzio, Sanremo, Portovenere and Lerici.

In Liguria foods mean first and foremost pesto genovese, a tasty sauce made with basil, pine nuts, garlic, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Pecorino cheese and extra virgin olive oil, used to season trenette pasta, one of the most popular Ligurian recipes. The Ligurian wine tradition is heroic, sprouting in an adverse territory thanks to ingenious and steep terracing close to the sea. Ligurian food is therefore paired with the excellent Liguria wine: Vermentino or Pigato, Rossese di Dolceacqua or Sciacchetrà.
