Food Special - Italy

The local Itialian food which a tourist in Italy should look out for is Pizza, Pasta, Gelato, Wine and Coffee.
Pizza - For a budget traveller, there are many local Pizza shops which sell Pizza on Kilogram basis. These shops have all variety of pizzas displayed in the glass case. One needs to select the type of pizza and tell the shopkeeper number of slices you want to eat. The shopkeeper will then cut the small slices accordingly from the displayed pizza. He will tell you the prize of the Pizza after weighing it on scale. You get one piece of pizza around 1.5 to 2 Euros in these street side shops.
Pasta - We enjoyed pasta dinner prepared at the Hostel Roma, Near Rome Terminie on our first day in Italy.
Gelato - A quick bite of chill Gelato (Icecream) is a must while travelling in Italy. The Gelato is priced according to scoop and you will eat as much as you wish to trun of the heat wave.
Quick Tip - Try buying pizza or Gelato from shop bit away from the local tourist attraction. As shops bank oppoiste the favourite tourist attractions charge you double the amount.
Wine – Italy is famous wine producing mediterranean nation and enjoying atleast one glass of wine in Italy is must. If you are not an expert in wines then I would recommend you to buy cheap bottle of wine from local shop and enjoy it in your hotel room.
Coffee – There are lot of Cafes on each corner of the road. Its fun to taste the strong and hot shot of Express Coffee while enjoying breaks in local sight seeing.

Besides the local food shops, one can find a lot of Mac Donalds shops near the Railway stations. These become handy when you arrive late from your travel and all the local shops have closed down.
