    Best part of our Genova visit.
    The 3 hours walking experience with the guide, Allessandro, explaining and singing about the history and remarkable things happened and happening in Genua was a highlight when visiting this ancient seashore city. Did you know the model for The Primavera painting of Boticceli was a Genova born girl. We know now where she lived.

    Genoa Food Tour
    My wife and I participated in a Genoa Food tour guided by Alessandro Poggi. It was a great experience not only for the atmosphere of the places we visited but also because of the selection of the dishes to taste authentic Genoa Cuisine. In addition to the food, Alessandro is a local guide with an amazing knowledge of the city and its history. It was the perfect evening for us. Alessandro is also totally fluent in Spanish. Alessandro habla Español perfectamente

    Wonderful tour
    We had a great evening of walking round Genoa and trying the food and wine. Our guide was terrific, taking us for freshly baked focaccia, wine tastings, traditional local pasta and ice cream. Would highly recommend this tour.

    Wonderful Evening Walking Dinner Tour of Genoa!
    Excellent Tour! We were looking for a food tour that would lead us to some notable/local food establishments, provide some Genoa history, and be reasonable in cost. This tour was ideal. Alessandro was a very good host and took us to many longtime establishments that are frequented by locals but ones that we would not have stumbled upon on our own. I am certain that our group of four enjoyed some of the cities best focaccia(really exceptional), pasta, and gelato(100 percent chocolate!) on this tour. We also stopped for wine and snacks at Genoa’s 100 year old wine shop along the way and tasted some savory baked goods at a unique bakery. We appreciated that Alessandro was able to give this tour in English and Spanish since we accidentally signed up for the Spanish tour but only understand English. Being a local resident and a graduate of the University of Genoa he was able to provide us with interesting historical and cultural facts about the city. We appreciated that it was a smaller tour our evening(6 people) as we were able to enjoy our Spanish speaking tour mates and guide. We all agreed that this was an exceptional tour and would highly recommend it if you are looking for tour with quality local food items and some Genoa history.

    Delightful class!
    Alessandro’s class is a treasure where he welcomes you into his private garden for a hands on wonderful lesson with fresh pasta and pesto. It exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend.

    Pasta, pesto, and plenty of fun
    This was a wonderful experience. Alessandro was a patient teacher and the food was delicious. The other couples were lovely and cooking outside on an Italian hillside was special.

    An enjoyable way to discover Genoa
    We thoroughly enjoyed Allesandro’s tour of Genoa in the old part of the city. We learned so much about Genoa’s past through his stories and songs, what a great way to learn and explore Genoa. The alleys and little corners he took us were accompanied by entertaining anecdotes and historical tidbits. Quite a walk, prepare for at least 3 hours of walking.

    Unique way to explore the secret places of Genoa
    Very fun way of learning about places in Genoa the one would not normally find. Alessandro is a wonderful guide and his songs about the certain areas are a unique way to tour the city. He was very friendly and happy to answer any questions I had about Genoa and Italy. I highly recommend this tour if it is your first time to the area.

    Fun friends activity
    Alessandro’s class was a lot of fun. He welcomed us with home made cookies, water and wine. My three year old daughter also came along and have a blast. The class was very interesting and dinner was amazing afterwards. We also got a little treat at the end of home made lemoncello that made everything even better.

    Unique experience with authentic insights into italian cuisine.
    We had a well organized day in a beautiful garden, with nice ambience. Alessandro is very kind and helpful. He has explained a lot and answered many questions. He picked us up from downtown and his family gave us a warm welcome. We got many tips and tricks for the perfect pasta and pesto. The food was super tasty. It included wine, water, and an appetizer and dessert. Can definitely recommend this.

This was a really special and memorable experience. Allesandro showed us the soul of Genoa by taking us through the narrow streets that he discovered in the years of living and growing up in the city, and delighted us with stories of history, commerce, and drama - offering a glimpse into the rich culture of the region.

Between the beautiful sights, hidden gems, and creative songwriting, we walked away from the tour with a collage of memories, fresh inspiration, and a deeper appreciation for the city.

If you do go for this experience, I would recommend following up with your guide for a cooking experience as well - as you will not regret it!

Alessandro was the best tour guide! He took us into many areas of the city that you would not normally see and then sang songs that he had written incorporating the history of the area. He took time to help me find my glasses which I had left along the tour. Just make sure you can walk up and down hills for three to four hours! You get tired but with all the scenery you don’t mind! I highly recommend this tour!

Very entertaining with amazing views. The guide was kind and very engaged and informative, and we all learnt a lot from the experience. The wonderful views paired with entertaining songs and a nice scenic walk was just what we needed to fully enjoy the city of Genoa. It also helped us explore areas of the city we would have never gone to without this tour, and for that we are all very thankful.

Alessandro is an amazing storyteller, songwriter, and historian. This is the best tour I’ve been on. We did many things during his tour and he sang to us in mindful locations. The scenery was spectacular and well worth every moment.

Of note, not negative, but one should be fit and able to walk up and down many paths. This was not difficult for me.

A must do in Genova! Ciao

We will always remember this unique experience! Alessandro guided us to places most tourists don't get a chance to see, and shared with us many historical stories and related songs he personally wrote. Lots of walking and some very steep slopes. Make sure to wear good supportive shoes. Thank you, Alessandro, for a fantastic day! Jim and Linda

The views were fantastic. We learned a lot about the charming city and its history.
Especially cool were the songs performed and also composed by the guide. They gave the tour a romantic flair and just something extra, out of ordinary.

A unique way to see Genova from high up. A very special tour full of nature, small piazzas, stories and music. It was a breath of fresh air away from the bustle of the historic centre
