15 places to eat well from north to south |  The Italian kitchen

The bridge of the Immaculate Conception it’s a small preview of the Christmas holidays: four days to live intensely. Five for the Milanese given that on the 7th Sant’Ambrogio, patron saint of the city, is celebrated, and therefore many may not work. The long weekend of the Immaculate Conception is a pleasant appetizer for the Christmas holidays: it is worth taking advantage of it for a foray into one of the many Italian places that deserve it. And for those who are passionate about good cooking, the opportunity to sit at a level table presents itself. For our (very personal) selection we thought first of the places and then of the place we like best.

There are timeless cities of art such as Verona And Florence, practically impossible to enjoy from April to September. But also Rovereto, Udine, Perugia And Viterbo: smaller, but equally suggestive. A leap into Langhe to find truffles – at a very high price, if you wish – and (re)admire the most famous wine-producing hills in the world is mandatory. Then the sea of ​​Liguria, declined to Levant And Ponente (so similar and so different) and the fresh water of Garda, which compared to a decade ago remains lively even in winter. You can also opt for a relais in the countryside likeWindrow in Maremma or discover towns that are part of Italian history such as Loretto or Pompeii. Our South – in this case it is linked to the suggestive Matera it’s at Palermo, always lively and full of surprises. Happy Immaculate Conception and, above all, enjoy your meal.

Restaurants for Operation Pane

The Christmas dinner is part of the many activities promoted by the Antoniano in favor of the poor. The national solidarity campaign "Operation Pane" will also be active until 19 December, aimed at offering concrete help to people living in conditions of great poverty.
