How to...
Get Around

Don't plan to drive in Naples. Road rules are different from what you're used to, and despite being confusing 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!

Taverna Campiello del Remer
Cannaregio 5701, Campiello del Remer, Venice; Tel.: 041-5228781
Taverna Campiello del Remer is a huge hit with the locals, and hasn't been discovered by too many tourists yet. The small outdoor terrace looks out over the Grand Canal, while inside the place resembles a country lodge with lots of brick vaults, stonework and timber beams. Come here for the copious, 20 euro buffet lunch; its the best - and most delicious - deal in town. Fill up on lots of affettati (sausages and cold meats), fresh vegetables, grilled to perfection and freshly-made pasta. Throw in the catch of the day at night and you have dinner.

Caffe' Platti
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Corso Vittorio Emmanuele, 72, Turin; Tel.: 011-5069056
Come to Platti for the best sandwich selection in Turin. All the bread is homemade, the little pastries are attractive and they make their own marrons glaces and giandujotti (chocolate hazelnut wedges). The period furnishings were designed by Cesare Valabrega in 1875. This historic café is conveniently located near the train station so is a perfect stop when arriving in or leaving town. It is handicapped accessible, too, and is Turin's only historic café that meets this requirement.
