The Takeaway: Italy

Welcome to The Takeaway, a series highlighting the best goods a destination has to offer. Every week, we’ll showcase seven gifts every traveler should consider in terms of quality and value.

Italy has always been a must on traveler bucket lists. The world’s most famous boot simply cannot fail to impress. With incredible landscapes, incredible culture and varied agricultural zones, it only makes sense that such an admired destination produces some of the best items in the world.

Whether it be truffle oil, handmade paper or leather shoes, Italian treasures are crafted with care. National specialties, like textiles and ceramics, often represent their respective towns, cities or regions. Take a detour from major attractions to find the best of Italy’s specialties: handmade lace from Burano; glass from Murano; and blueberry liqueur from Sardinia, Corsica, and Capraia.
