Michelin Guide Italy 2011
The last Michelin Guide fully dedicated to Italy reached its 56th edition. An amazing goal, celebrated with a brand new volume with an important number of innovations and a new record of stars awarded to italian first rate restaurants.
In the guide 276 Italian restaurant are awarded with the record number of 325 stars: a strong increase of 22% in the last five years.
Among these restaurants, there are two brand new business with 2 stars (among 37 with this grade), and six restaurants awarded with 3 stars, the best evalaution mark in Michelin's ranking.
An important part of the guide is dedicated to hotels, bed and breakfast and farm holidays. An interesting innovation is related to low cost business, or rather those restaurants and hotels able to match an high quality service with low prices (less than 30 euro for restaurants, less than 90 in a double room for hotels).
