In Rome, one of the hardest challenges a gastro-tourist can face is finding a place to eat in an area occupied entirely by tourists. Price gouging for mediocre food, crowded restaurants, and poor service are the hallmarks of eating in areas dedicated to tourism. Rome’s historic center is no exception to these problems, despite Italy’s culinary fame. However, we avoided all of them when we dined at Tre Pupazzi.
My three-week long trip (that happened a long time ago!) to Italy & Switzerland introduced me to a few dishes and snacks that I'd like to share with you. While I'm not certain I can provide you any recipes, I promise they're very good, and that if you have the chance, should definitely go try some! Hope you enjoy the photos as we reminisce of the past -- and look forward to the future!
Tirano is a small town in the province of Sondrio in northern Italy is adjacent to the Switzerland-Italy boundary.
After two weeks in Davos, we stopped by Zürich, the capital, for a couple of days. The atmosphere of the two places are polar opposite---one is the bustling capital of the financially-stable nation; the other, a pretty, relaxed small village at the foot of the Alps.
Again, a few summers ago, I got to visit the lovely town of Davos. Davos may sound familiar, as it's where the annual World Economic Forum is held. But it's also a quaint, iconic-ly small European town.
Two years ago, we spent a couple of weeks in Switzerland. Our destination was Davos, the highest city in Europe.
