Martina, Maja, Malina, and Arianna outside of Sibenik
It was the part of my European visit that I was most looking forward to, after an intense week of winery visits in Franciacorta, Piedmont, and Rome. The flight was brief to say the least; it was the kind where as soon as you are allowed to turn your laptop on and work, the flight attendants tell you... Read more...

Best restaurants, food markets, shops, hidden gems and much more!
J.K. Lounge
Restaurant
Piazza Santa Maria Novella, 7, Florence; Tel.: 055-2645181
J.K. Lounge, with its teak terrace opening onto the lively Piazza Santa Maria Novella, is a great place for a summertime lunch, dinner or aperitif. In the winter the action moves inside in front of the black marble, Neo-Classical fireplace of this boutique hotel. The downstairs Pink Room is a stylish place to sip an after-dinner drink. J.K. Lounge also serves a generous buffet brunch on Sundays from 12:30-3 p.m. It starts off with a welcome Bloody Mary or Bellini and continues with homemade cakes, tarts, cheeses, meats, cereals and salads, a hot dish to order, freshly-baked bread and a selection of tea, coffee and juices.

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.
