Italy is Italy, a wonderful country with many problems.
Italy is history, art, architecture, food
, beaches, sun, mountains, snow. Italy is probably one of the most beautiful and inspiring countries in the world and this guide doesn’t pretend to be the guide to take with you when visiting Italy, after all we are not a travel agent, but I think it is only right to provide some background about what Italy really is with a particular attention to its wines and food to better understand us, but Italy is much more.
Italy is a country that everyone wants, and must, visit and experience. A trip to Italy should be in everyone bucket list and the same should be said with regard to Italian wine and food. Italy is divided into 20 regions and each region is different from the others, with each village or city having different traditions compared to their neighbourhood, sometime very, there are no two regions the same, each one with its own food and wine traditions. Italy is an endless feast, it doesn’t really matter where you are, when sitting at an Italian table is all about enjoying the food and being together.
is about simplicity, fresh and seasonal ingredients freshly cooked and plenty of wine, yes wine is always on the table and local food is always best paired with local wines, a match made in heaven.
For each region we have put together what we think visitors should now, if there is anything you have missed, please do let us know and will add it.
