Viviana & Alessandro
My name's Viviana, I feel really lucky to live in such a charming city like Genoa and I'd like to share its hidden treasures to travellers. My husband Alessandro and I enjoy meeting new people, we like authentic and genuine food and we think that a dinner is always a great way to socialize and make new friends. He's a licensed tour leader and we both have a deep knowledge of our city: in the historical center there are plenty of charming places, but most of the times they are not so easy to find on your own. We will share the best anecdotes and stories and relate the origin of the most typical local dishes to the history of the city
