FICO Eataly World is the biggest Italian Food theme park celebrating the excellence of Italian food: a place to enjoy the wonders of Italian cuisine and wines. FICO in Italian means Fabbrica Italiana Contadina (i.e. Italian farm factory) and it counts more than 150 Italian brands, from North to South, of every kind and size.
In just one place you can learn about the culture, traditions, and craftsmanship that make Italian food the most famous in the world.
Inside you will find 2 hectares of fields and open air barns with 200 between cattle and other animals; 8 covered hectares with 40 firms producing live all the most famous Italian products; 9.000 square meters of shops and market, areas devoted to sport, children, reading and services; 6 educational rooms and 6 themed carousels about fire, ground, sea, animals, wine and future.
You just have to explore the crops and visit the animals, learn how to make handmade pasta in one of the many cooking classes available, see first-hand how local products are made, or simply stroll around the 45 trattorias, restaurants and street food kiosks tasting the best traditional Italian recipes!
Inside the park you can walk, rent a bike and cycle or pick a special wheel train to move from an area to the others. You can shop Italian products and send your goods directly worldwide at the Post office inside the park.
