Try local produce

In Genoa, you will be simply spoilt with culinary delights. The most popular delicacies are the flat Ligurian bread and authentic pesto. This green pasta sauce is made with olive oil, garlic, pine nuts and Genoese basil and has been an important product in Genoa for centuries. Almost every restaurant in the city has a dish on the menu made from this sauce. If you want to get away from the city, the famous, colourful villages of Cinque Terre are just an hour away by train.
