Martina, Maja, Malina, and Arianna outside of Sibenik
It was the part of my European visit that I was most looking forward to, after an intense week of winery visits in Franciacorta, Piedmont, and Rome.

Tips for The Travelers:
Best restaurants, food markets, shops, hidden gems and much more!
L'Osteria del Caffe' Italiana
Via Isole delle Stinche, 11/13r, Florence; Tel.: 055-289368
Just what Florence needed - a place for everyone and it's open non-stop. You may choose from a large selection of wines by the glass or by the bottle. Plates of crostini, salami and other Tuscan sliced meats and cheeses are served all day and night, while during restaurant hours a full menu of Tuscan specialties is available. The ambience is great, so is the food and the service very professional. In nice weather book an outside table on the quiet, atmospheric Via della Vigna Vecchia.

Al Bicerin
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Piazza della Consolata, 5, Turin; Tel.: 011-4369325
This historic cafe in the center of Turin opened its doors in 1763 and all the charm of the 18th century is retained in its decor of dark wood, mirrors and period lighting. Order a bicchierino (literally, "little glass"), an addictive mixture of chocolate, coffee and whipped cream served in a not-so-little glass. These same ingredients are used in the torta bicerin, a sinfully rich cake.
