Each region of Italy or even in a particular city has its own laws, which are better not to violate, but for this you should familiarize yourself with them in advance, for example, on the Internet. So, for example, in Venice it is forbidden to feed pigeons. Well, yes, there are more of them than necessary, maybe at least so their population will decline. In Rome, it is not customary to eat outside, even if you bought food in a fast food cafe. Therefore, absorb all burgers, sausages and shawarma on the spot, and do not pace around them with the city. The same applies to Venice – you will not be able to sit on the promenade near San Marco and have a light picnic – the guard will immediately appear. Absolutely everywhere in Italy it is not customary to drink coffee on the go. You may find Starbucks, but don’t wander around town with a paper cup – not comme il faut.

Our top 10 is not the most obvious dishes, without which Italy is not Italy. Especially on the streets …
Ascolana del piceno fried olives
If you are used to the fact that olives are only in brine, then Italians are in a hurry to surprise you – stuffed and fried in batter, they are simply delicious. In the provinces of Ascoli Piceno and Teramo, olives were grown by the ancient Greeks and Phoenicians. So this production is not one thousand years old. But they began to stuff and fry them only in the 19th century. As often happens, the savvy cook helped. In noble families, after plentiful feasts, meat often remained, and so that the product would not be wasted, a technology was invented in which olives are stuffed, breaded and then fried. A special variety with a lot of pulp is used for this. After a short fermentation, the fruits are placed in tanks with salt water flavored with fennel.

Passengers of the lift without ski equipment, who use it as an excursion object, are called “caps”. Enough? We just wanted to prove that “non-skiing athletes” in ski resorts are more than enough. You certainly won’t be alone. And, of course, the lack of skills will not prevent you from delving into the apres-ski program – that is, what you do in the mountains besides descending from them.
