A few rules to enjoy travel in Italy

Posted by Jim Carfrae on November 6, 2009

low res parmaI’m sure no expert, but nine cities in 10 days over 1700 kilometers does teach you a few things:

  1. Beware the GPS, you can easily lose signal.
  2. Eat the food of the region you are in, match with the wine of the region.
  3. For a better espresso, choose bars over restaurants.
  4. Don’t ask hotels for restaurant recommendations.
  5. Try new things, some taste good – chicken livers and culatello; and some don’t – the paste after the first pressing of olives.
  6. If you can pull it off, travel with someone who speaks Italian, you will learn more.
  7. Pre-plan your wrinkle strategy, there are no irons in the rooms
  8. Beware the GPS, sometime it claims you are driving though a field.
