Day three of our Memorial Day travels included a train ride from Torino
to Genova– a charming seaside port town that boasts rich economic history, the absolute best pesto, and the most Italian palazzi (palaces) I’ve ever seen in one place.
When we were initially planning the trip, my sister wanted to visit Cinqueterre, but it was logistically too difficult to manage with a visit to Torino already confirmed. Instead, we visited the seaside village of Boccedasse, just outside of Genova. As in Cinqueterre, the colorful houses of Boccedasse hug a blue Ligurian shore and pesto foccaccia is in no short supply (and an absolute must).
The stay was a quick one, as we set off for Pisa to catch our flight back to Holland just the following morning. But we departed with no rejects on how much pesto we consumed and a desire to visit Genova again– maybe next time for a longer stay with a seaside view.
Fino a prossima volta, Genova!

ever take it for granted.
