May 14 (Reuters) - European shares rose on Friday, as investors picked up beaten down stocks after rising inflation worries led to sharp losses earlier this week.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index .STOXX rose 0.6% by 0718 GMT, with travel and leisure .SXTP and retail .SXRP stocks leading the gains. The benchmark was still on course for a 1% weekly drop, its worst since late February.

Global markets were rattled this week after a rally in commodity prices as well as quickening U.S. inflation raised fears about interest rate hikes.

Italy's Banco BPM BAMI.MI rose 2.2% After Deutsche Bank (DE: DBKGn ) upgraded the stock to "buy", saying the lender's "speculative appeal" could increase in the next few months.

French food group Danone DANO.PA slipped 1.8% after Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS ) downgraded the stock to "sell", saying weaker demographic trends, particularly in China, will weigh on its specialised nutrition business.
