Italy continues to be popular amongst travellers who are keen on exploring the stunning scenery, unique culture, and gastronomical delights. With its rich cuisine, this beautiful Mediterranean land offers countless famous and traditional must-eat foods.

Many countries have local culinary styles that differ from region to region, but in Italy, these differences are much more pronounced. This is not surprising considering its shape– long and narrow, surrounded by the sea and with big mountains in the North.

Italian cuisine is strongly influenced by local history and traditions, as well as by the local and seasonal availability of products, which means that each region of Italy has its own regional food specialities.
