Wandering Liguria features the Artisan Specialty Food Market in Genoa
Genoa is one of the great food cities of Italy. It not only has dozens of hole-in-the-wall specialty food shops selling everything from excellent, natural olive oil and sweet pandolce dessert cake, to fresh octopus or world-class, artisan-roasted coffee.
