No matter how many times you've been to Europe, you can still find unique and decadent foods to sample when you stay at villas in Italy. Known for fresh produce and luscious pastries, Sicily is a gem of the Mediterranean, brimming with culinary delights that will tantalize any set of taste buds.
If you've been holding out on Sicilian desserts throughout your vacation, running a few minutes on the treadmill is a small price to pay for trying a Granita e Brioche. Resembling a gourmet ice cream sandwich, this summertime treat is a staple among locals. Small puffs of brioche bread are cut in half and filled with almond, pistachio, strawberry or mulberry granita, a traditional Italian treat made of sugar, ice and different flavors.
For a touch of savory indulgence, try a bit of Frutti di Mare. The best place to grab one of these seafood linguini dishes while staying in luxury vacation rentals is at an open market by the water. Vendors will grill mussels and swordfish to perfection before tossing them with a bowl of pasta and marinated sardines.
