Discover the Unforgettable Autogrill Experience in Italy: A Must-Try Roadside Delight!

Are you planning a road trip through Italy? Keep an eye out for the iconic red and white Autogrill sign at service stations along the highways! As one of the largest catering companies in Europe and North America, Autogrill is a go-to destination for travelers in search of a quick and delicious roadside bite.

Autogrill Italy highway

With over 30 countries and many franchises under its belt, Autogrill is synonymous with the term "highway restaurant" in Italy, even if it's owned by a different company. The best part? You don't have to leave the highway to enjoy a great meal, and you can avoid pesky road tolls. Plus, with speedy service in mind, Autogrill's layout and selection of food and drinks make it a one-stop shop for all your needs.

Whether you're in the mood for pasta or pastries, you'll find a great selection of hot and cold dishes, snacks, and beverages. And don't worry if your Italian is rusty - at Autogrill, you mostly help yourself with what you want to buy, and can simply point at menus and food boards to indicate what items you want.

Rest area in Italy

But Autogrill isn't just a convenient pit stop - it's also an Italian cultural experience. Autogrill hopping can become a memorable part of your trip, with each location offering its unique selection of tasty olives, delicious salami, and refreshing limoncello. Plus, with over 600 Autogrills in Italy, you're sure to find one nearby wherever you go!

Fun fact: Italy has more rest stops than any other country in Europe, and you only have to drive about 27 km on average from one Autogrill to another.

And if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of one of the many creative and humorous Autogrill commercials that air on Italian TV!

Don't miss out on this quintessential Italian experience! Whether you're on a short trip or a long vacation, be sure to make an Autogrill stop part of your itinerary.
