Sitting on the Mediterrnean coast and framed by the Ligurian hills in the background, Genoa is undeniably one of Italy's most remarkable travel destinations, especially for those with a taste for good food. The city is most famous for pesto and focaccia, but there are many more specialities well worth a try such as fried anchovies or, for those with a sweet tooth, violet, rosemary and pistachio gelato. It's also easy to work up an appetite exploring all the different neighbourhoods in the city, each with their own character, including the Old Town with the Cathedral of San Lorenzo and Porto Antico which is home to the largest aquarium in Italy. For those looking to explore a little further afield, the beautiful coastal area of the Cinque Terre can be reached by train in just under an hour and a half.
