Duration: 3 hours
Discover hidden historical and cultural sights and surprises that make it more than “just a food tour”.
There is so much culture too, colours, unexpected views. From historical buildings spread out over three ancient zones up the works of art in the different churches. You will find it lovely to wander aimlessly down the narrow alleyways called “caruggi”, with small patches of blue sky showing above ancient houses and deep arches.
The guided tour will be led by a licensed tourist guide who will show you the hidden gems of Sanremo’s Medieval village, called “la Pigna” (the pinecone, after its shape). La “Pigna” is so charming and authentic, really off the beaten track.
On our 3-hour walking food tour through the characteristic narrow alleyways of the Medieval village you’ll also visit the fruit and vegetable market, an outburst of colours and flavours, and you’ll get to taste what makes Ligurian street food so special and unique: focaccia, sardenaira – a sort of local pizza slice, torta di verdura, and focaccia with cheese. Our expert will explain you the ancient Ligurian recipes that our “nonnas” (grandmothers) wrote on the family cookbooks, and you’ll taste bakery specialties with locals, pairing them with 2 local DOC wines.
You’ll also discover the local “green gold”, the extra-virgin olive oil DOP Riviera Ligure – Riviera dei Fiori (i.e. PDO, protected designation of origin), and the Taggiasca olive, the queen among olives.
All this is within walking distance … and the street food is to die for!!!
