My favourite restaurant in Genoa. Still going strong despite the demise of Vittorio himself and still serving a mean lobster linguine.

Tasty seafood

Lobster linguine. A speciality at Da Vittorio’s.

Arcadia in Genoa

Arcadia. Via XX Settembre is lined with these magnificent arcades. It’s a joy to walk up them.


Looking for lice and checking for BO. A bad hair and armpit day on mount Olympus!

 St Pancras church, Genoa

The Wally bar

The wally bar, where I had lunch with all the other wallies!
