Reason One: The Food.One obvious reason is the food, it doesn’t really matter if you can’t afford a four course meal, rest assured that even the simplest pizza or bowl of pasta would have been prepared with skill. The pizzas are usually baked in a wood burning stove and there is nothing better than an authentic Italian Pizza Margherita when you are starving. Pasta cooked perfectly and al dente in a tasty tomato sauce sprinkled with Parmesan or Parmigiano Reggiano is the perfect sunshine in a bowl.
Reason Two: For the Wine… to drink Italian wine in Italy.
What could be better that visiting on of the wine regions Call me a romantic but I think there is something very special about drinking my wine where it was created – just think crusty white bread, fresh mozzarella a few tomatoes fresh from the land together with lovely bottle of Tuscan wine – heaven!
Reason Three: To Eat Real Italian Ice Cream.
Nothing beats the real thing…..
That ice cream is very popular in Italy comes as no surprise to anyone and Gelato is very popular with Italians and tourists alike. You can find shops that specialise in ice cream called “gelaterie” but many caffes sell ice cream as well. Lots of places make their own gelato, others get it from small Italian gelato factories. Please be aware that not homemade gelato is the same; some places use commercial mixes, some places use fresh ingredients.
Look out for labels such as:
• Produzione Propria (homemade – our own production)
• Nostra Produzione (our production)
• Produzione Artigianale (production by craftsmen)
Each Italian city is unique and offers a different atmosphere.
Reason four: the Magnificent Cities & Towns
