Here we are!! Cogoleto, our home for the next few months... My first walk through the town I found myself grinning from ear to ear. This place is so cute with a nice small town feeling. I'm so happy we decided to stay here, rather than in the city of Genova. Each have their our characteristics, but the slow pace, everyone knowing everyone environment, is more my taste. Needless to say, I have found all the pastry shops and will be trying my hand at creating "Dolci Tradizionali Genovesi"...
There is an amazing lungomare for the whole length of the town. Every day there are people walking, enjoying the fresh air, rain or shine!
Cogoleto also claims to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus... Here you can take a look at his portraits and life scenes that are scattered around the town.
