Pesto Cooking Class

Some chopped garlic and basil, covered with olive oil and preserved in “arbanella”, a typical container for Ligurian foods. The pesto recipe first appeared in 1865.

Please fill this form for individuals or for groups and you shall receive an answer written by a live person at Eight Hotel Paraggi. This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, and the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel.
Bear in mind that websites set up to give an automatic answer, work with allocated quotas given by the hotel, therefore when it appears there are no rooms available for the date you want, this is not necessarily true, because they never allocate ALL the rooms to third parties.
