Genovesato (Genoese area)
Here, the salty sea air, the myriad scents of woods, parks, gardens, flowers, streams and lakes, create a perfect blend of nature, history, art, culture, tradition, folklore and spirituality. This idyllic area so strongly tied to its climate and land, provides an abundance of seasonal ingredients for the local culinary traditions. For sporting enthusiasts the area also offers a wide range of outdoor activities, from water sports to hiking. The Genovesato (or Genoese area) stretches from the Grande Genova, (from Voltri to Nervi), to the Paradiso Gulf (from Bogliasco to Recco),and includes the inland valleys (Val Bisagno, Val Polcevera, Valle Scrivia and Val Trebbia) touching the borders of Piedmont, Lombardy and Emilia. Situated right in the centre of Liguria, Genoa and its surrounding area has always been the heart and intellectual capital of the region. Visitors walking through its villas, palaces, castles, fortresses, aqueducts and museums can breathe in its thousand year history, and from the walls of its sanctuaries, abbeys, churches and oratories resounds the ancestral religious spirit of its population. Every year people indulge in the traditional religious and pagan festivals and costume parades, renewing the ancient traditions which have been handed down from generation to generation.
West and East Tigullio
From Camogli to Chiavari you can admire extraordinary natural beauties, such as the Mount Portofino Park, the enchanting beaches and inlets, the breathtaking deep waters. However, this area offers more than just sea. From the coast you can go up to the inland area of Chiavari along Val Fantanabuona, famous for its slate. Farming on these hills and the orchards over hanging the sea produce excellent fruit and vegetables, while the olive groves and vineyards produce high quality oils and wines. Fishing is also an important local activity: fishermen's cooperatives offer a wide range of freshly caught fish and the famous salted anchovies. Among palm trees and scented pitosphorum, visitors can try local flavors and homemade dishes. Silk, velvet, embroidery, lace and slate are examples of ancient crafts handed down from generation to generation.
