Italian Food

When you say Italy there’s a lot of things that come immediately to mind: beautiful landscapes, wonderful sea, easygoing people, a huge amount of monuments that brings with it the sign of centuries and so on. But maybe there’s that one thing you automatically associate with the idea of Italy: food.

Let’s face it, there’s no place in the world that offers such a variety of food and products like Italy. And we’re not talking about pasta and pizza only, even if both of them are unique symbols in the history of Italian gastronomy.

Italy can easily be called the Paradise of Food for a reason: a universe of products and ingredients that continue day by day to offer the possibility of trying an endless variety of dishes.

In Italy food is not just food: it’s an experience involving all your senses. An experience, moreover, that you can live everywhere in the country: from North to South, every region offers his own culinary treasures that are absolutely worth trying.

And everywhere you go, you will easily find that the Italian concept of food is strictly related to culture. Food, indeed, is strongly linked to the territory: we can say that the former is an expression of the latter and reveals the identity of people.
Every region of Italy have lots of gastronomic excellencies to offer, both in terms of food and wine, which is another crucial element that makes our country famous all over the world.

Food and wine is actually one of the most important fields of Italian economy, due to a high level of quality that has been growing more and more, making Italy one of the favourite destinations of tourists from everywhere. Those who come to Italy, in the end, can’t miss an amazing gastronomic tour while visiting cities and monuments.
