Italy is by far one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, and for a wide variety of reasons. Some come for the beaches, some come for the history, while others come just for the food. Italian food is a favorite for many, but until you’ve had straight from it’s origins, you haven’t tasted true Italian food.

You may first think of spaghetti and pizza, but Italy has a lot more to offer than just that. Gnocchi, ravioli, lasagna, tagliatelli together with an abundance of fresh and delicious seafood, you won’t have a dull meal during your trip. Enjoy rich sea food pasta with calamari, shrimp, or crab, but make sure you have room for dessert. Italy is famous for it’s gelato, or ice cream.
