Planning a trip to Italy? Turn to the MICHELIN Guide Italy (Italia) 2020 for carefully researched, objective recommendations to 2,700 restaurants and 2,300 hotels. Anonymous inspectors use the famed Michelin star rating system to create an extensive selection of great places to eat and stay for all budgets. Descriptive symbols and an English legend tell you all you need to know (minimal text is in Italian.) Craft a memorable journey with the recommendations and helpful maps in this annual update. Our famous one, two and three stars identify establishments serving the highest quality cuisine - taking into account the quality of ingredients, the mastery of technique and flavors, the levels of creativity and, of course, consistency. In addition, the Bib Gourmand symbol (also known as the inspectors' favorites) highlights restaurants offering good quality at a good value. To accompany the restaurant and hotel guide, try the Michelin Green Guide Italy, Florence, Tuscany, Rome or Venice for in-depth sightseeing options or pick up the Michelin Italy Road and Tourist Map No. 735 to help you navigate around the country.
