Whereas British cuisine was particularly underrepresented across the globe, it’s the polar opposite when it comes to Italian food. No matter where you are, it seems we all love some pizza and pasta, with the majority of the cities we studied having an abundance of Italian restaurant choices. This means that if you are from Italy and are considering a move elsewhere, then you’ll likely be covered when it comes to finding the food you love. France in particular provides some strong choice, with the coastal city of Nice beating both Bordeaux and Paris to the accolade of the French city that caters to Italian visitors the most. In Summary
Hopefully our research has given a flavour for what food culture looks like around the world, and potentially helped you a little more in deciding where might be best for a permanent move, when considering the home comforts you don’t want to completely leave behind.
