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!

Trattoria dal Biassanot
Via Piella, 16/A, Bologna; Tel.: 051-230644; 051-260788
Opened in 2007 by the proprietors of another popular local restaurant, Dal Biassanot serves Umbrian dishes along with traditional Bolognese fare such as lasagne, tortellini, tortelloni and tagliatelle. All the pasta is handmade and in 2002 Cristina won the prestigious "Mattarello d'Oro" award for her exceptional skill with a rolling pin. The desserts and the gelato is made on the premises, too, and there are outside tables for fine weather dining.

Antico Caffe della Pace
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Via della Pace, 3/7, Rome; Tel.: 06-6861216
The servers look like models and the patrons look like (very attractive) artists, writers, and musicians. The interior - with its blue tile floors, gilt-framed mirror, and upright piano - is just as evocative. Antico Caffe della Pace is great at night, when the young crowd spills into the street, but it's even better in the morning, when you can linger over an espresso and the city's best cornetti while admiring the passing parade. In nice weather, tables are set up outside in the little piazza.
