If you want to get to know the heart of Genoa, you must lose yourself in the maze of “caruggi”, the small streets and alleys of the historic medieval centre of the city. To get a sense of the local food scene, you can’t miss the local markets.
The bustling Mercato Orientale (the Oriental market) is one of the most famous spots; the name refers to the fact that, in the past, it was a Spice market. Now, in addition to the exotic spices, you can buy fresh produce from the Liguria region, typical ingredients and local specialities.
