Since I had already done the cooking class, I had a day off. While others rested, I decided to explore the city center of Genoa by walking around for about 8 miles. I met up with my friend Malwina and we searched for a tattoo shop. Along the way, we stumbled upon Christopher Columbus’ house and visited a few beautiful churches. Later in the evening, I met with Pauline and we enjoyed some tasty street food near the lively port. It was a day of wandering, unexpected discoveries, and delicious bites in the bustling city of Genoa.
The next day started by boarding an early charter bus to Piedmont, a region renowned for its vineyards. Our first stop was a charming hilltop city, where we paused to admire the picturesque views of the vineyards below. Despite the rain, we were fortunate to receive a tour of a vineyard’s cellars and a brief glimpse of the vineyard itself. The highlight of our visit was undoubtedly the four-course meal we enjoyed at the vineyard, perfectly complemented by a tasting of four exquisite wines. Our exploration continued in another city in Piedmont, but unfortunately, it was cut short due to unfavorable weather conditions, as the group was not particularly fond of the rain. Nonetheless, the day offered a delightful immersion into the world of Piedmont’s vineyards, tantalizing our taste buds with fine wines and treating us to captivating vistas.
