FOOD & WINE TOURS
Variety says it all for Mediterranean, Ligurian and Sanremese cuisine. From the sea to the mountains in less than two hours: this influences the cuisine. Are you in a hotel in Sanremo? Enjoy an early morning walk, the morning sun, and the morning breeze. The fishermen have arrived after spending the night at sea. Their faces look tired, salty and wind beaten. Their fish lie there in the port stalls: for sale. You can talk directly to the people who know fish. These are memorable experiences. Then you can take a stroll along the ancient route linking the old town to the port area.
Flavours become warm, fragrant, all encompassing. It is time for savoury pastries. Hunger is but a distant memory while savouring focaccia ligure, sardenaira, torta verde. What’s better than a good glass of Ligurian wine from a well-supplied enoteca. Crisp, clear and thirst-quenching whites, and intriguing reds, which inspire meditation. The worthy conclusion to this easy stroll is in a maze of colours: the fruit and vegetable market. While there, you needn’t look up, an outburst of colours is displayed in front of you: the stalls overflowing with every type of food. This is not the larger organized food distribution: this is Mediterranean fantasy.
