Let's Go to Italy Together!

Loving La Dolce Vita in Liguria!

It’s so fabulous to be back in Liguria in spring time! And joining me are five fabulous fun couples…

For the next half of our Ligurian experience, we go to Levanto…

On our way we stop for an espresso in Rapallo before our first stop, a visit to an ancient silk factory. Here, under the guidance of Magda, the Cordani family still produces velvet and silk fabrics on 18th century looms…

After a fascinating visit (and a little shopping ), we head for Chiavari. After a walking tour we visit another local artisan, Franco Casoni, well known for his wood carving we each receive our own wooden stamp used to make The typical local pasta called “corzetti”. 

Mine has my name in Italian, Vittoria, and a map of Italy…

Our next accommodation is in Levanto. Here we will stay in an idyllic setting at Villa Nova, a family owned and managed agriturismo.

Our first evening, we enjoy a lovely aperitivi on the covered patio savoring the local antipasti, excellent wines and spectacular view…

Levanto is the perfect home base for the next few days. 

Our first outing is to Cinque Terre. We enjoyed the villages of  Manarola, Vernazza, and Monterosso. 

We climb up up up by bus for a very special wine tasting and”light lunch” of homemade antipasti, two pastas and anchovies- delicioso! Grazie Luciano and Mamma!

Our last excursion is to charming Portovenere where we can stroll the narrow medieval passages, enjoy lunch, shopping and a gelato before returning to Villa Nova.

Already it is our last day together and we will have a very special afternoon cooking Ligurian cuisine together with Ermanno and his wife, Clara, at their restaurant in Levanto, L’Articiocca (Artichoke).

We have enjoyed a fabulous, authentic immersion into the Ligurian culture and cuisine. Wouldn’t you love to join me and my BeautifuLiguria partners next time??!!
