    Wonderful way to see Genoa

    Very interesting historical gastronomic tour conducted in a very elegant way by Valeria. The places that proposed modern tastings in style but very traditional in the history of Ligurian cuisine. The restaurant "La Tortuga" was very interesting with very good pesto trofie.
