Please select a featured image for your post

When we do a Europe trip, it is common to visit many countries in a short space of time. Therefore, most of the time we give priority to getting to know your capitals! We spent a lot of time on the street exploring these big cities and, if you look closely, almost all of them have one thing in common: the presence of stalls or kiosks selling some very typical food.
In general, typical sweets of the country. They end up being much cheaper options than the traditional trade and bring a very authentic way to taste the destination. They sure make the travel experience more special! We have separated some destinations and their traditional delicacies to help you get straight to the point when you travel. Enjoy!
Gelato in Rome

Crepe in Paris
There is no shortage of crepe kiosks in Paris. Sweet is one of the greatest traditions of popular French cuisine! Nothing like buying a crepe and eating looking at the Eiffel Tower or sitting on the edge of the Seine. There are many filling options, but the version with Nutella is certainly one of the best.

Pretzels in Berlin
THE Pretzel it is already a sweet that is also present in Brazilian territory. It is a knot-shaped baked dough that can be covered with sugar, cinnamon, chocolate, nuts, etc. In Germany, however, the most common is salted version. It is best known as a brezel in Germanic lands. They say the best are in Bavaria, but for sure you can also find good pretzels in the German capital.
