Epcot is my favorite park in Disney World and a big reason for that is the World Showcase. I love exploring all the different countries and everything they have to offer.
There are lots of good restaurants and shopping experiences in the countries, but there are also some great sites to see. The Italy Pavilion has a good combination of all three. I love going to that pavilion to explore the different shops. From clothes to Murano glass, the shops in the Italy Pavilion have a lot for you to see.
For porcelain, crystal, handbags, clothes, accessories, and Murano glass, head over to Il Bel Cristallo. If you want to see some fun Venetian masks then you need to check out La Bottega Italiana. Another shop you can visit in the Italy Pavilion is La Gemma Elegante.
For food, there is no shortage of options:
- In the mood for some yummy gelato? Make sure to stop by the Gelati stand. They also have other desserts, frozen drinks, coffee, wine, and other drinks available.
- There are also some good table service restaurants: Tutto Italia Ristorante and Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria.
- Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar is a lounge located near the restaurant and has plates for two available, desserts, Paninis, specials, and pasta available to order.
- Via Napoli Pizza Window is a quick service dining option where guests can get pizza without going into the restaurant. They also have different drinks available at the window.
There are also some great photo opportunities in the Italy Pavilion. The buildings themselves are great for pictures, but getting closer and seeing all the detail is the fun part when taking pictures.
One of the pictures from the Italy Pavilion I love is a picture of the gondolas in the water with Spaceship Earth in the background.
So, as you can see, there are plenty of reasons to spend some time in the Italy Pavilion. This is why I always recommend people take two full days to spend at Epcot. There is so much to see in the World Showcase alone, that it’s nice to be able to spread the sightseeing out over a couple of days.
Have you ever explored the Italy Pavilion in World Showcase?
