Don’t just visit the large cities
The smaller towns in Italy are the places with character. The places that you will never forget. There, you will meet the friendliest locals, eat local dishes and learn more about the culture. Something that will be more difficult to do when you are visiting large cities.
Yes, the cities are the more popular places with tourist attractions, but the towns are the true look into Italy and how Italians live on a daily basis.
Eat as a local
Eating every night in a fancy restaurant and ordering the best food prepared by the best chefs isn’t really a look into the culture. Especially, if you are still ordering the food that you are eating every day at home.
There are many places in the city and in the smaller towns where the locals buy their food or where the locals go to eat out. This is the place where you should be eating if you want to eat real Italian food. Don't be afraid to just talk to a local, you will get directions to the best and tastiest food in town.
Visiting Italy isn’t just about visiting the most popular tourist attractions and eating at the most popular restaurants. This is all about getting to know more about the culture, the food and the lifestyle. With this guide, you will be able to make the most out of your Italian visit, to get to know the real Italy, not through the eyes of a tourist, but through the eyes of a local.
