Our Ultimate Edible Italian Bucket List

If you were planning a trip to Italy, what would be on your Italian "bucket list"?

Some people might say seeing the Sistine chapel, climbing Brunelleschi's dome, or exploring the 5 villages of the Cinque Terre.

Is it weird if my "bucket list" includes truffle hunting, learning to make pizza in Naples, and tasting freshly pressed olive oil? It's true- I'm not one for checking famous sights off my list, but having an ongoing edible bucket list is right up my alley.

If you're like me and #traveltoeat, it should come as no surprise that my list gets longer the more I explore Italy.

Before we lived in Italy, I knew that food is different from one end of the country to the other- each region having their specialties and customs behind them.

But it wasn’t until later that I began to realize not only does each province has its own special foods- but each town, village, and valley do as well!

We could explore food our entire lives in Italy and not learn enough about this vast land and its rich culinary traditions.

Join me as we take a look at all 20 Italian regions and dip our toe into the vast world of unique ingredients & recipes.

I've gathered some foodie experiences in each region, to add to your own edible bucket list. Keep this list close as you plan your great and delicious adventures in Italy! Click on each region and the details will pop up.

Most of the things I have added are completely based on dreaming of eating my way through the country.  (By the way, this list is by no means exhaustive, and I will be adding to it for sure.)
