18 Italian Must-Eat’s In Cinque Terre

This party of seafood is local and so fresh!

Eating in Italy is a treat all on its own. Eating in Cinque Terre is like that extra cherry on top of the icing, especially if you’re a big fan of seafood. Perfectly steamed sea bass, the freshest tuna carpaccio, even something so incredibly simple like spaghetti al marinana is delectably orgasmic.

Thanks to the five fisherman villages’ proximity to Italian Rivira’s Liguria, everything we consume in Cinque Terre is locally grown, locally caught. I was only here for 4 days, so 18 Italian grubs were all that I could devour. Obviously there is far more than what’s showcased in the video above, so aim for 20+ on your next trip and let me know the other amazing things you’ve tried in the comments below.
