There are so many amazing areas of Italy, and many of them are perfect for sampling mouth-watering food and drink. If you are a passionate foodie, someone who falls asleep dreaming of sensational dishes, this is certainly a place you have to go. Here are some of the best destinations for anyone planning to indulge in a culinary adventure of Italy.
One of the most famous and luxurious areas of Italy, Tuscany is a dream for all lovers of wonderful food and sensational surroundings. Rolling hills, sprawling grape vines, epic mountains, and the wild seas, Tuscany has some of the best cuisine in Italy. Florence and Pisa are two of the standout cities in this region, and places you can find a great deal of incredible food. Zesty soups, local salami meat, rustic bread, and prime Tuscan meat is here in abundance. And, you can wash it all down with some of the best vino in the country.
Veneto is one of the great lesser-known tourist destinations, and one of the real culinary gems of Italy. Not only is this arty region incredibly easy on the eyes, but, it has an epic food scene to match. The cities of Venice and Verona are the shining beacons of Veneto, and the ideal places to find unbelievable cuisine. Risotto, polenta, and chicken are just a few of the favorites for people in this region. Verona also has a pretty big seafood culture, so, if you love the taste of fresh fish, this is definitely somewhere you should visit.
This northern region of Italy is the place to come for some really opulent, decadent, complex cuisine. In fact, Piedmont is one of those places that prides itself on deliciously decadent dishes. They have some world-class chocolates here, as well as a lot of gnocchi, polenta, and some tasty truffles as well! This is also the home of fonduta – it’s like fondu, but with additional egg yolks and truffles added! If you really want to indulge yourself in a big way, Piedmont is certainly the right choice for you.
Sicilian food is some of the best in the world, and we feel like it could even rival Tuscany for the ideal culinary excellence. Sicily has a wonderful blend of Italian dishes and Mediterranean infusions, as well as influences from African and Arabic cuisine. Lots of seafood, peppers, and eggplant are eaten here, and there is a big emphasis on dessert – with a special focus on citrus fruits.
The thing we love the most about Italy is how much diverse cuisine they have on display. There are a lot of wonderful dishes, to choose from, and so many great areas with their own influences. If you want to enjoy one of the most diverse culinary experiences in the world, Italy is a no-brainer.
