Rome ranks first in the food section and fourth as the world’s most popular tourist destination. This is a respectable result that testifies that Rome is one of the tourist destinations to consider for our next trip, especially if we like to eat well.
Tripadvisor, the popular travel review site, recently released its annual “Best of the Best” list from its annual Travelers’ Choice column for 2023, which lists the best tourist destinations around the world.
This year, Rome made a triumphant entry on the list, topping the list as the top food destination in the world and the fourth most popular tourist destination in the world, behind only Dubai, London, and Bali.
Tripadvisor’s recognition as the best food destination in the world is a great honor for the city of Rome, and it testifies on the one hand to the excellence of the culinary tradition made up of centuries of history, and on the other it celebrates the quality and heterogeneity of Rome’s restaurant offerings.
Roman cuisine is one of the most famous regional cuisines in Italy and the world. It is characterized by simple and tasty dishes that use local and seasonal ingredients. Roman cuisine has ancient roots dating back to the days of the Urbe, but over the centuries it has been influenced by many other culinary cultures, among the best known being Judeo-Romanesque cuisine with succulent artichokes and gricia alla giudia, as well as traditional kosher food.
When visiting Rome, one cannot fail to enjoy the menu of the renowned Italian prince’s dish, pasta, and Rome is the flagship city of that dish. We recommend trying at least once a tasty pasta alla carbonara, a typical dish of spaghetti or rigatoni mantecati with eggs, guanciale and pecorino romano, bucatini all’amatriciana, a classic dish prepared with guanciale, tomato and pecorino romano, or tonnarelli cacio e pepe, a characteristic recipe with creamy pecorino romano and black pepper.
Equally appetizing are the second courses of traditional Capitoline cuisine, based mainly on meat such as abbacchio allo scottadito, to be enjoyed hot to appreciate its softness, risking, as the name suggests, burning your fingers, the exquisite and succulent coda alla vaccinara or tripe with mint.
Below is the list of the top 20 destinations in the world in the food category according to Tripadvisor:
|#9||New Orleans||United States of America (Louisiana)|
|#11||Charleston||United States of America (South Carolina)|
|#16||Cape Town||South Africa|
|#17||San Sebastian||Spain (Donostia)|
|#19||New York||United States of America (New York)|
It should be noted how two other Italian cities are on the list: Florence (go to Florence page on HelloMondo) in 4th place and Naples (go to Naples on HelloMondo) in 8th place, confirming Italy as the world’s excellence in the field of food.
Rome also ranks fourth as the most popular tourist destination. After restrictions on tourism imposed across the globe in recent years, tourists do not want to miss the opportunity to visit the “Eternal City,” the must-see tourist destination at least once in a lifetime.
|#1||Dubai||United Arab Emirates|
|#9||Santo Domingo||Dominican Republic|
|#11||Playa del Carmen||Mexico|
Rome has been awarded 56 “Best of the Best” to places to visit and attractions this year. This is the highest award issued by Tripadvisor intended for the top 1% of the best review profiles.

Tripadvisor’s recognition is a signal that Rome is not only one of the most important and popular tourist destinations in the world, but should be an incentive to continue to preserve its cultural and culinary heritage, as well as its tourist offerings for visitors from all over the world.
