Chocolate and sugared almonds; talk about “being spoilt for choice”

Classical and filled chocolates, chocolate olives, pralines and candied fruit and then sugared almonds with almond “souls”, pine kernels and pistachios; these and a lot of other titbits can be found in the old confectioneries in the whole of Liguria, for the joy of the most gluttonous. If you find yourself in Genoa there are some old confectioneries absolutely not to be missed; not without reason they have been inserted in the regional list of historic shops: Confetteria Romanengo in Piazza Soziglia, Drogheria Torielli in Via di San Bernardo, Fabbrica di cioccolato di Viganotti in Vico dei Castagna and Confetteria Marescotti di Cavo in Via di Fossatello.
