Recco, a hidden gem of the Italian Riviera

It's finally SUMMER! Long, hot days make me want to hit the beach, and only eat outside. I love the Italian Riviera, and Recco is one of those little towns that only the Italians visit...small, simple, and exploding with color. Recco is between Portofino and Genova on the coast, and, like the rest of this region, it's famous for their trompe l'oeil on their buildings, which just knocks me out...
 






There is one other little secret about Recco that the Italians will occasionally share...it has been well known for centuries for making the best Foccacia on the planet! Plain, olive, and the best of all, formaggio...make sure you get it before the panifico closes, and then eat it on the beach...
