Casual start to the morning with a croissant and coffee for breakfast, followed by 6 hours walking around Old Town Genoa. The sights around the upper end are much better than the port, we sat on the steps of a church for half an hour and did some people watching.

The flavors of garlic, pecorino and Parmesan cheeses and pinenuts shone through with enthusiasm, and we smiled giddily the entire time we ate it. The Panzoti was a ravioli-like pasta, and it too was delicious. D had heard of this almond sauce before, and was insistent on getting it...I guess it was a nutty kind of night... (Groan...) the richness of the nuts really came ...
