In 6 weeks time I’m heading to Italy to eat, drink, soak up some culture and then eat some more. So what goes into planning a trip away when you want to make sure that you don’t miss any of the highlights that your chosen destination has to offer?
Well, firstly there is the obvious trawling the internet. Reading reviews, comparing menu’s and looking at endless blogs (oh yes). Then, you’ve got to ask the locals. I’m very fortunate that in my network I have both Florence and Rome natives that are dying to pass on their hidden gems. And you know what they say – if the locals eat there, it must be good!
