Full description

On this tour, you can go food shopping like a local with your "Cesarina", enjoying the distinctive Italian local markets and learning how to recognize the best produce from the land. Then, attend a private cooking demo where your Cesarina will share the secret of her/his family cookbook while finishing one of the dishes in front of you.

Sit at an authentic Italian table and enjoy a 4-course seasonal menu including starter, pasta, main course with a side dish, and dessert with drinks (water, selection of red and white wines from regional cellars, and coffee). Feel the warmth of Italian hospitality as you connect with local people.

Instead of loading your suitcase with souvenirs, take home memories that'll stay with you for life.

    Cesarine Anna was very warm and hospitable. She wanted to fulfill all of our wishes. To support our different language levels German-English-Italian, she brought her son and two classmates with her as translation helpers. we had a fun time. Since the Italian holidays were still going on in Genoa, many market halls were probably closed or only open in small numbers. This is how Plan B came into action: a small city tour through the historic old town. The food was typically Ligurian with many explanations from Anna. Everyone is very relaxed, warm and courteous. The backdrop high above the roofs of Genoa on the small roof terrace in the middle of Anna's family is great! A big mille grazie Anna! Organization by getyourguide professionally with quick reactions. Suggestions: Reference to the Ferrragosta period when there are restrictions on market tours. Price for this offer is too high.

    Daniela was an excellent host. I really enjoyed going to the market with her and then back to her home to cook and enjoy a great lunch. Daniela even purchase a couple of items I had pointed out that I liked while touring the market.
