“Genoa Walks” is a new but already appreciated organization at the service of tourists born in 2013 from the creativity and experience of Marco Besio (Guide and Tour Leader active in the field since 1986) after having dealt with the owners of London Walks during a guided tour of the city.

We are very active in the cruise sector offering tourists arriving in the Ligurian ports of Genoa, Savona and La Spezia, a wide range of private excursions to help you to maximize your free time.

We offer above all guided tours on foot in the city of Genoa and the eastern territory of Liguria: the Golfo Paradiso (Camogli), the Tigullio (Portofino), the Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets (Portovenere and Lerici).

For people with reduced mobility or special needs we use taxis set up for wheelchairs transport.


Genoa, a city to eat!

In this 2018, year of Italian food, I invite you to discover one of the most fascinating Italian cities, Genoa, following a unique itinerary focused on his specialties, led by a professional guide.

The history of the city unveiled through its cuisine characterized by a few local ingredients combined with many others from all over the world, being Genoa since centuries one of the most important ports in the Mediterranean.

You’ll be introduced to the basic foods of the Genoese cuisine visiting first the “Mercato Orientale”, the central main food market in town with his large variety of products, so much lush fresh food – fruit, vegs, fish, meat, cheese, rice, lentils. All beautifully displayed.



Marco Besio

I was born in Genoa in 1959 and I’m being working in Tourism since 1986.

So in 2016 are 30 years, an important goal!

I can see the origin of my present job in a remote episode of my past.

I was a little child and sometime on Sunday morning I used to follow my father, shipping agent, who went to his “scagno” (office in Genoese language) to supervise some ship arriving in the port.

The office was situated in an ancient aristocratic palace behind the medieval Ripa Maris arcades of Caricamento and so during the walk along the narrow streets of the old town my fathe, as a tourist guide, showed me architectural details or ancient tablets on the walls of the palaces telling me a lot of stories of the bygone Genoa. In that way he passed me his passion of Genoa that already my grand father had instilled on him.
