Private Tour - Pesto Making Class with Food Market Tour

Availability: Tuesday - Saturday*

Duration: 5 hours

*This tour operates all year round except for August and Italian public holidays.

This morning you will start the tour with a visit to the fresh food market where you will be captured by the smell of baked goods, hand-made pasta, cheese, fish, meat, vegetable and fruit. A paradise for food lovers!

However, to fully understand the true essence of Genoa, there is nothing better than a traditional pesto lesson; and you will meet your pesto expert in a private palace located in the historical center of this ancient town. Grabbing your mortar and pestle, your skillful teacher will reveal the secret process to making their famous pesto sauce. Then, enjoy a relaxing light lunch with the meal you prepared.

If you are staying at a centrally located hotel in Genoa, your guide will meet you in the hotel lobby. Otherwise, a meeting point will be arranged.
