While Paris, France, Rome, Italy, and London, England are known for being some of the best food cities in Europe, there are so many other food cities in Europe that are often forgotten about and just as good. These cities may be underrated, but they’re certainly worth checking out when visiting Europe. These delicious destinations should be part of your travel plans.

Lyon, France

France is known for Paris and Bordeaux, but Lyon, set on the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers has tons of local ingredients and tons of fine dining options. The city is a must for meat lovers with skewers and pork sausages, being popular foods in the city.

Modena, Italy

Italy has Florence, Rome, and Naples, but the smaller city of Modena, which is located in the Emilia-Romagna region, has handmade pastas, pizzas, sparkling red wine, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and syrupy aceto balsamico tradizionale di Modena.

San Sebastián, Spain

San Sebastián is great for adventurous foodies and those who like fine dining. While Madrid and Barcelona have tons of amazing restaurants, San Sebastián has the highest amount of Michelin stars per capita and tons of great tapas bars for those wanting to try a variety of dishes.
