Insiders Guide To Scoring Italy’s Finest Food, Wine, Parties, + Waves


Surfing in Italy? Yes, please. There’s something about surfing in countries/cities that are an epic time even when it goes totally flat that we will always say yes to. France, New York, Iceland, Italy, etc.

Come for the surf, stay for the pizza and wine. Here local ripper Roberto D’Amico shows us how it’s done.



Even if you get skunked for surf, these are the parts of Italy that D’Amico guarantees won’t disappoint you.

“Our food is the best in the world! There is so much culture behind every single place, subtle differences among every little town,” he says. “The best way to find the really good food is to contact someone who knows the spots. Don’t go to the center of any town. Go find little local places where you can see the owner smile as you enjoy his plate.”

And if you are looking to party, you need go no further than Rome.

“Nightlife is pretty crazy. I live near Rome, and there is always something to do,” D’Amico says.
