Genoa Old Shops and Tastings

You’ll have an amazing walking tour of the historical center of Genoa discovering the most famous monuments of the town and its ancient food shops!

Wandering through the “Carrugi” alleys is a unique experience and we believe that just by walking through this maze of historical streets, you’ll find the “real” Genoa essence. You’ll discover the largest medieval old town in Europe, walk along its authentic medieval alleyways, stop in the squares and in the renaissance streets of the historical town. You will admire the painted facades of the noble Rolli Palaces built by local aristocracy in the XV century and now protected by UNESCO.

During your tour you’ll discover the ultra-centenarian food shops of the historical center: the old “friggitorie” serving friscieu (fried croquettes filled with herbs), farinata, fried fresh seafood eaten at the counter or to take away, the prestigious old pastry cafè where the famous composer Giuseppe Verdi loved to spend his time tasting the pastries and then, the “Pietro Romanengofu Stefano” old shop.

During your visit you’ll have the possibility to taste some typical street food in Genoa old shops and to relax in an ancient Café.
