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!

Tips for The Travelers:
Best restaurants, food markets, shops, hidden gems and much more!
Harry's Dolci
Fondamenta San Biagio, Giudecca 773, Venice; Tel.: 041-5224844
Harry's Dolci - Arrigo Cipriani's other Venetian venture - is a less expensive option than the original restaurant off St. Mark's Square. Don't be fooled by the name; cakes and desserts are not especially prominent here. In fact, the cuisine is pretty similar in quality and approach to that on offer at the other Harry's. And while Harry One is all inside, Harry Two makes the most of a stunning view across the Giudecca canal to the Zattere, with tables and chairs arranged under a linen canopy. Dine on the house marinated salmon, followed by risotto with scampi and zucchini and a killer chocolate cake. And enjoy that view!

Panino Giusto
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Via Malpighi, 3 , Milan; Tel.: 02-29409297
Panino Giusto is a chain of panini (toasted sandwich) cafes. The reason to choose this particular venue is its location: a Liberty-style building with beautiful iron wrought balconies and ceramic tile decorations. There's a great variety of panini on offer, and the mini chocolate ices served with the coffee are a nice touch.
