We're waiting to catch our early train out of the Italian Riviera. We have six days left in our Best of Europe in 21 Days tour and I've asked our group to recall their tastiest bites so far. Along with the creamy pumpkin ravioli we enjoyed in Rome's crusty Trastevere neighborhood, yummy favorites include octopus, pineapple-mint gelato, pesto, and (my favorite) wild-boar salami. Great food is an essential part of any good European vacation.
