Healthy Snacks for Your Italy Vacations

Written By Philippe Dardour

If you’re planning for an upcoming Italy vacation, there are definitely some things you’re going to want to prepare for. One of the biggest issues is, quite frankly, the cardio involved. Rome is a beautiful city and you’re going to want to see a lot of it. The only way to do this, though, is on foot much of the time (otherwise you’ll be doing a lot of waiting). Fortunately, you don’t need to be a marathoner to explore the city where the marathon was created.

However, you will want to think about healthy snacks while you’re there. Don’t get us wrong, Rome has amazing food and you should try as much of it as possible. This includes wines, pastas, pastries and succulent meats.

But also give some thought to keeping in shape via eating healthy foods too. Wine actually isn’t that bad for you. Neither are other Roman foods like olives, dates, nuts and lean meats. Drink plenty of water while you’re there too (especially if you’re having a lot of wine). This strategy will ensure you don’t put on too much weight while enjoying Rome.


There may be too much to do in Italy to ever fully experience, but that’s no excuse not to try. Whether you’re there to take Tuscany vacations or you just want some general Italy sightseeing from Florence to Venice and out to Sicily, you won’t be disappointed by a trip here. Contact Italia Tours and you’ll be guaranteed the trip of a lifetime.
