Liguria and Genoa
tips and insights


It plays a major role in the cooking of Genoa and Liguria. The regional cuisine is very dependent on the sea as Liguria is mostly mountainous, not ideally suited for farming and cattle grazing.


Throughout Liguria, herbs are generally used with a free hand. In contrast, spices are added with constraint.


Although Ligurian wines are only fair in quality, the Cinque Terre sub-region of Liguria is a conversation piece. Some of its vineyards are reachable only by boat or cliff pathway along the steep, rugged coastline.

Best city for gourmets

Genoa is the top all-around food city in Liguria. La Spezia is the runner-up.
