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!
Antico Ristorante Paoli
Via dei Tavolini, 12r, Florence; Tel.: 055-216215
Paoli dates back to 1824 and has one of the most evocative settings in town. You'll sit at a table under a 14th-century vaulted ceiling whose ribs and lunettes are covered with fading 19th-century frescoes. It's in the heart of the sightseeing zone but the food is actually good. Try the ravioli verdi alla casalinga (spinach ravioli in tomato sauce), risotto ai funghi (rice with porcini mushrooms) and the delicious entrecote di manzo arlecchino (a thick steak in cognac-spiked cream sauce with peppercorns with a side of mashed potatoes). Reservations highly recommended.

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.
