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.
Get an authentic feel of everyday life in Genoa and learn to choose the best produce like a local... Then, head home together to enjoy an authentic dining experience!
Enjoy the market tour, with the Cesarina learn how to select the best vegetables and ingredients of the season and immerse yourself in a private cooking class at the Cesarina's home.

During the cooking class the Cesarina will teach you some tricks of the trade of three authentic recipes (starter, pasta and dessert).
