There are many reasons to visit Italy. It is a country full of history, art and magnificent architecture. It has an endless coastline with aquamarine seas, long stretches of untrodden sand and craggy cliffs. Its people are warm, welcoming, noisy and passionate. But if you love good food and wines, then perhaps that’s enough of a reason to come here.
Find a quiet bar with a fabulous view and pause with a prosecco….
….or stop in a welcoming wine bar to smell the roses….
….and taste some local meats and cheeses….
Try somewhere new, and sample olive oils from all over Italy. Peppery, lemony, spicy….
….perfectly matched with a panzanella that’s as pretty as a picture….
….or tender steak tartare with liver pate and tomato salad….
….and melting artichokes like petal-strewn bells….
Pass the cutlery please!
