DELICIOUS THINGS TO TRY FOR
BREAKFAST IN ITALY
Italians prefer sweet over savory breakfast items to start their day. Expect buttery croissants (or brioche/cornetti) or pasticcini (bite-size pastries).
IT'S ALL SWEET
When in Sicily, do your tastebuds a favor and order a granita Siciliana.
Flavors include strawberry and chocolate. Ask for ‘poca panna’ if you prefer a drop rather than a dollop of freshly whipped cream on top.
DON'T FORGET THE BRIOCHE
Order a brioche roll with your granita. Break off a chunk and dunk it in.
SALTY OVER SWEET
Head to the northern region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol. Here, the locals start the day enjoying local delicacies like speck bacon and local cheeses.
