What To Expect

Be sure to bring your appetite and your walking shoes, and meet your guide at the Neptune Galleon — a replica of a 17th-century Spanish vessel and one of Genoa’s most distinctive landmarks. Head off by foot to the first delicious destination, the city’s oldest friggitoria, for some crispy fried bites. Continue on through the charming Sottoripa quarter to a local bakery for a taste of fresh-baked focaccia bread topped with a range of savory ingredients.

Stroll through the winding medieval streets of Vicoli, the city's historic heart, stopping to sample more local specialties like farinata (a thin chickpea-flour pancake) and famous Genovese pesto. Along the way, admire beautifully preserved architecture and learn about historic landmarks like the San Lorenzo Cathedral.

Next, indulge your sweet tooth with an array of favorite Italian desserts. Nibble canestrelli biscuits at a traditional pastry shop, savor creamy gelato at an award-winning gelateria, and sample melt-in-your-mouth chocolate and candied fruit at a historic confectionery that’s been dishing out indulgences since 1780. Finally, take a digestion break in true Italian style with an espresso at a cozy café before parting ways with your guide back at the Neptune Galleon.

A great couple of hours. Our guide Gabriel was very knowledgeable about Genoa. We went on the tour to see Genoa not particularly for the food, but it was very tasty. especially the onion focaccia. I have been to Genoa a number of times but after this I felt I now know it much better. Tip - take a bag - there is a lot of food so it would have been good to put some in a bag for later.

This tour gives us the opportunity to see places from a unique perspective, since you walk through small streets to reach the main attractions of the historic part of the city. Besides that, the guide has been living in Italy for a long time and she was perfect, providing us excellent local references. We tasted a lot of different food in charming coffee shops, bakery, the exquisite focaccia di Recco, a wonfderful gelatto in an alley near via Garibaldi! As for the drink samples, there was not the same variety.

While the guide was friendly and somewhat informed she was not authentic Italian but from England which was very disappointing and I wouldn't recommend it.

I would give this 0 stars if that were possible. We were extremely disappointed, since we drove from Portofino to Genoa for this tour and the guide never showed up at the departure destination. We called the tour provider to inquire as to what was going on, and they did not know why the guide was not there. They asked us to wait at the meeting point a while longer to finally inform us 25-30 minutes later that the guide would not be present. Not only did we waste a 1/2 day that could have been so better spent, we also had to pay tolls and parking for nothing. The tour company should have advised us beforehand.

The tour was very well organized and enjoyable. Our guide Francesco was knowledgable, personable, and professional. We got to taste an abundance of delicious treats and walk it off afterwards in the beautiful city. The group size was small, which was perfect for us. Would definitely recommend and will be booking again in the future : - Anna, Ben, and Andrea
