Day trip from Turin to Genova, mainly to have lunch at the wonderful Osteria di Vico Palla.
Italy October 2016
The morning view from the balcony.
On arrival in Genova we got a taxi straight to Vico Palla.
A special perhaps as I don't remember seeing it on the menu last time - fried porcini in breadcrumbs. Delicious!
Dad and Janie with their lunches.
The wonderfull mandilli di seta (silk handkerchiefs) with pesto.
After lunch we took a stroll through Genova and came to Marescotti, which had an interesting selection of vermouths etc.

Meanwhile I was inside perusing the cabinets.
My Genovese vermouth.
The interior at Marescotti.
Another favourite place of mine in Genova - Profumo di Rosa, wonderful gelato.
Slowly ambling back toward the station, along Via Garibaldi here.
On the train on the way back, the bottle of Genovan (Genoan? Genovese?) vermouth I bought.
