Tired of doing the regular tourist activities and visiting landmarks, meeting people and absorbing historical culture? Are your motivations more primal than that? Do you simply want to eat some of the best food in the world, and lots of it? We’re certain in believing that no one could blame you.

Sometimes getting away from our careers on holiday requires taking a load off, and that can also mean evading the standard ‘tourist considerations’ that you have to prepare for. Sometimes, you have to go hard or go home. Sometimes, you have to eat the best and most food available.

Of course, anyone who even has the slightest worldly education will understand that the best food culture, food history, and food extravagance lies in Europe, spread among the cities there. If you’re looking for the best eating, that’s where you’ll have to go. Before you pack your dinner knife and fork, napkins and ice pack to be used after you’ve eaten too much, ensure you check up on the upcoming ETIAS regulations to apply for safe passage into Europe.

Your stomach will only blame if you become stuck at the border. Without further ado:

Palermo

Palermo is one of the greatest cities if you’re hoping to mix Roman, Arabic and African styles of cuisine. It holds some of the most intricately displayed food markets in the world. The capital of Sicily is small but is absolutely dripping with original food creation, such as the cannoli, and incredible gelato.

Copenhagen

Denmark's food culture is felt worldwide, and it’s not just about the pastries. They have some of the most interesting variations of ‘roast dinners’ that you can find. For example, take the Flæskesteg, a traditional dish of pork, pork rinds, and tart red cabbage. This is one of the most ubiquitously found dishes in any Danish restaurant. Copenhagen can truly satisfy the meat lover through and through.

Modena

Home to the famous Massimo Bottura, the second best-ranked Chef in the entire world, Modena is an intrinsically historical food city. Home to the best parmesan the world has ever seen, Modena is also responsible for parma ham and balsamic vinegar.

Paris

Need we explain more? Paris has been home to some of the best Chef’s in the world and is often where up-and-coming stars of the food world come to pay their dues in training. The chef’s here often work up to 16 hours at a time to provide the best of food to their audience, and so it’s your moral duty to sample their delights. Thanks to the size of the city, here you’ll find some of the best international cuisine you’ll find anywhere, as well as Parisian favorites. If you’re looking for Michelin Star, this is the place to be.


This list has been dominated by French and Italian cities and with good reason. It’s not hard to recognize these countries as the most contributive to the world of cuisine, and there’s no better way to treat your stomach. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids during your stay, and don’t be surprised to return to your home as a much heavier human being. When you’re surrounded by food of this quality, temperance flies out of the window.
