A 10-Step Plan To Eating Like An Everythingtarian In Italy

Step 1 Eat a whole pizza on the day you arrive

Step 2 Have a new flavour of gelato every day

Step 3 Have the classics – lasagne, spaghetti carbonara, tiramisu, pesto pasta, bruschetta etc.

Step 4 Have your pizza made into a heart shape because the chef has a crush on you (Confession: this happened to my friend, not me :()

Step 5 Have the odd salad when you feel like you’ve overloaded on carbs

Step 6 Eat the local specialties, like Napoli pizza in Naples and Insalata Vesuvio in Pompei

Step 7 Stay hydrated in the heat with delicious granita, espresso and Peroni

Step 8 Drink a 2 euro bottle of Bellini while sitting by the Grand Canal in Venice

Step 9 Get all your exercise from walking around amazing Italian cities in 40 degree heat

Step 10 Don’t worry about whether what you’re eating is healthy or unhealthy and have a great time!

Sounds like a wonderful vacation! Great attitude for enjoying life! And I would like that Bellini right now! :)

Italy is one of my food-based dreams! Mostly, I really just want some of that gelato:-).

I did the same exact thing when I was in Italy this summer. It was fabulous. I stuck to the different flavor of gelato every day rule.

The six days I spent in Italy back in my junior year of college were some of the best days of my life (foodie and otherwise). Thanks for taking me back there, Emily!

Love the tips! I leave for Italy in 19 days!!!!! Will be sure to take your advice, Emily. :)

Andrea – Thanks, I had a great time! It was a good Bellini.

Sarah – You should definitely go! I had an amazing, delicious time.

Amanda – A girl after my own heart! :) The great thing is that having gelato every day didn’t even feel gluttonous, it just seemed to be the done thing.

Hillary – No problem! It’s a beautiful country with some amazing food on offer.

Laura – Oh how exciting! I hope you have a great time and you should definitely follow my advice :)
