International Destinations for Foodies

France

France
Marie Antoinette said to “let them eat cake,” and we couldn’t agree more. But there is much more in France to eat than just cakes. Snack on fresh cheese and baguettes as you walk along the Champs-Élysées, and pick up some pastries for when you gaze at the Eiffel Tower. Be sure to stop into a local café for a tiny cappuccino or sample the quintessential French delicacy of escargot. For all France travel deals, click here.

Italy

Italy
Make sure to pack clothes with breathing room. Nothing says “When in Rome” more than eating decadent pizza, pasta, and gelato as you connect with your inner gladiator at the Colosseum or throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain. For all Italy travel deals, click here.

Germany

Germany
Can’t pronounce the food you’re ordering? No worries. Just expect that your meal will consist of the ingredients that the locals say they use most: meat, meat, and more meat. Then savor the flavor at a local beer hall with a stein of your favorite frothy drink. For all Germany travel deals, click here.

Spain

Spain
Tapas bars are the norm here—sample delectable Spanish dishes such as arroz con leche, gazpacho, chorizo, and paella made as fresh as in your neighbor’s kitchen. Spain’s huge fishing industry offers an opportunity to venture beyond your comfort zone to enjoy some unique twists on how to cook your favorite seafood. For all Spain travel deals, click here.

Peru

Peru
Don’t let the three simple staples of Peruvian food—corn, potatoes, and beans—fool you. The influence of immigrants from Spain, China, West Africa, and Japan combined with local cooking practices has produced modified versions of beloved food dishes. Varieties of spices, native fruits, and freshly caught fish are all must-tries when in this South American country. For all Peru travel deals, click here.

Mexico

Mexico
When Baja Fresh and Taco Bell are no longer curbing your cravings, head south of the border for some real Mexican food. Sample homemade tortillas and delight in the wide range of fresh herbs and spices that add pops of flavor to mole, carne asada, and enchiladas.
