Where Liguria region borders with Tuscany we find La Spezia, the gem of the evocative and colourful coastline of the “Gulf of Poets” (Golfo dei Poeti). This city is close to the internationally famous Cinque Terre, whose proximity makes La Spezia even more magical.
When you walk in the narrow streets of the Old Town or along the promenade by the sea, you will be pervaded by the scents of the city’s street food and of the "cucina povera", traditional dishes that are simple, fresh and seasonal.
Imagine yourself on a terrace in front of the sea in La Spezia or in one of the cosy Cinque Terre villages, savouring delicious codfish pancakes with a glass of local wine, while chatting with a local family. This is Bella vita!
Immerse yourself in a private dining experience at a Cesarina's home, enjoy an exclusive cooking demo and taste authentic recipes treasured in family cookbooks passed down by real Italian Mammas. Feel the warmth of Italian hospitality as you connect with local people.
Enjoy an Aperitivo with sparkling wine and nibbles followed by a 4-course menu including starter, pasta, main course with side dish, dessert with drinks included (water, selection of red and white wines from regional cellars and coffee).
