Italian Cities: Best for Food & Wine

Posted on: under Personal

What do Florence, Rome, Siena, Bologna, and Sorrento have in common? TripAdvisor named them in the top ten European cities for food and wine. Their company included Barcelona, Paris, York, Edinburgh and San Sebastian.


Italian cities have a little bit for anyone’s taste buds. Coming in at number one on the list is Florence. Known for their locally grown food and Tuscan wines, Florence has beautiful vineyards and some excellent restaurants where Pecorino Romano cheese and wild game are often found on the menu. If you are looking for a heartier meal such as fried cod or pasta carbonara, you may want to travel to Rome and check out the cuisine there. For the seafood lovers, Sorrento is one town you won’t want to miss! Not only is the Amalfi Coast home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but the food is delicious. Try some gnocchi alla Sorrentino with freshly caught seafood and don’t forget about the limoncello! Bologna’s tortellini al brodo and Siena’s Chianti put these cities on the list. Both cities are great for a day trip so be sure to add them to your itinerary!
