Buca wants to share our love of Italy with you! We are giving away a trip to gorgeous Northern Italy and all you have to do to win is vote on the featured Buca pasta dishes of the month!
Imagine yourself gliding down Venice’s Grand Canal by gondola or vaporetto (water bus) or touring landmarks such as the grand Palazzo Ducale, the Teatro alla Scala, El Duomo, and the Palazzo Vecchio Basilica di San Marco. Then do some world-class shopping at the Rialto Market or the fashionable Quadrilatero della Moda (Rectangle of Gold).
Art and Architecture
Italy is known for its considerable architectural achievements including the Colosseum and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The country is also home to some of the best museums and art galleries in the world, such as the Uffizi (featuring Botticelli, Rembrandt, and Caravaggio to name a few) and the Accademia Gallery which features Michelangelo’s David. Many times, art and architecture overlap, as is the case with the Santa Maria delle Grazie church, where you can view Leonardo Da Vinci’s original fresco depicting The Last Supper or the 15th century Castello Sforzesco, home to the Rondanini Pietà, Michelangelo’s final and unfinished masterpiece.
Food and Drink
After all that sightseeing and shopping, you’ll be hungry for Italy’s delicious delicacies. As the world’s top wine producer, the country offers plentiful options for sipping. Many dishes will feature olive oil and fresh fruits and vegetables (especially artichokes and tomatoes). In Italy, you will find yourself treated like family in most restaurants—just like we do at your local Buca! You’ll find a variety of delicious local cuisines at the many local trattorias sprinkled throughout the region, perfect to relax and sample the day’s specials while watching the world go by.
