HOW TO TRAVEL IN ITALY & NOT LOOK LIKE A CLUELESS TOURIST
How to...
Get Around
Don't plan to drive in Naples. Road rules are different from what you're used to, and despite being incomprehensible to most outsiders, they keep the city going. You'd be the wrench thrown in the perfectly oiled wheel! No right turn on red anywhere in Italy!

Best restaurants, food markets, shops, hidden gems and much more!
Ristorante Corte Sconta
Restaurant
Calle del Pastrin, 3886 - Castello, Venice; Tel.: 041-5227024
The bare, simple decor doesn't hint at the trendiness of this out-of-the-way trattoria, nor at the high quality of its strictly seafood cuisine. The emphasis is on freshness here; they put the shrimp live on the grill. Dine on seafood-studded spaghetti, risotti with scampi and a great frittura mista all'Adriatico (mixed Adriatic seafood fry). In nice weather you can dine under a canopy of grapevines in the courtyard.

Bar delle Fragole
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Corso Vittorio Emanuele, 7, Nemi; Tel.: 06-9368102
Stop in for some fresh gelato made with the the tiny, wild strawberries know as "Fragole di Nemi." The best time to visit is during the Strawberry Festival in early June but this picturesque little village overlooking an ancient volcanic lake known as the "Specchio di Diana" (Diana's Mirror) is charming any time of the year - it's an accessible (and relaxing) day trip from the chaos of Rome.
