Italy, Rome Guide (B): Rome's Best Pizza is Not Roman! Our Top Ten

How many times have you thought of Rome as the cradle of Italian food, as the best place to try it in all forms and shapes? How many blogs, articles and tours tell you the wonders of Roman food? Too many, I am afraid as Rome is one of the worst places in Italy with regards to food. Seriously, it is very expensive and the local cuisine is one of the poorest in our country. Much better places for foodies are Bologna, Naples, Turin, Genoa, Sicily, Tuscany, Umbria and Puglia (not necessarily in this order). No doubts about it.

Even if Romans are so proud of their pizza (biggest food mystery in town) don’t follow them while they’re having their pizza and go with our top ten. ......
