Welcome to Genova!

Genoa, in the northwest of Italy, is one of the largest seaports in the country. The influence of travellers of this city is reflected in its gastronomy and typical dishes. Here, there is a fascinating tradition with roots in the “cucina povera”. These are traditional folk dishes which are simple, fresh and seasonal. The Genoese Cucina Povera’s ingredients come from a variety of sources: the sea, full of fresh produce; the local lands, home to an array of wild plants, and also the old colonies, which were a source of inspiration and of exotic ingredients which all passed through the port. A dining experience in a local family home is the best way to discover the traditions, hidden spots and authentic flavours of Genoa.
