How to order coffee in Italy: Navigating cafe culture like a pro

Italian coffee culture is strong, just like the espresso, and cafes are always full no matter the time of day. In Rome, cappuccinos are fantastically frothy, and the espresso is always made with quality coffee beans and ground on site. One sip of an Italian coffee, and it will be hard to go back to Starbucks. That said, your first time in an Italian café can be confusing if you’re not properly prepped. No worries: Here’s our guide to ordering coffee in Italy like a pro. Related: Our glossary of ...

Best certified US Neapolitan pizzas

Italians take their pizza quite seriously, and nowhere in Italy takes it more seriously than the city of Naples. This is a major surprise to absolutely no one, but what you might not know — unless you’re fortunate enough to spend your working hours stirring sauce and pounding out dough — is that there’s an organization whose sole mission is to make sure that Neapolitan pizza remains free of false bravado. The group is called the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana, and its mission is to“promot...

Italian Easter Pie

Making this torta is a tradition in our house and it just doesn’t seem like Easter without it. As a college student my grandmother would pack me a piece to go and I would eat it on the train ride back to school. There are certainly variations on this recipe, some with a lot more […]

‘You won’t find this on Capri’: Italy’s Tremiti Islands

This tiny archipelago off Puglia was once a penal colony, but today its clear waters, coves and quiet lanes offer a blissful escapeThe ferry from Termoli noses its way towards two petite islands, slipping into a serene Adriatic inlet. To the left, San Domino’s low limestone cliffs rise, crowned by Aleppo pines. To the right, the Abbazia di Santa Maria a Mare, an 11th-century abbey built by Benedictine monks, dominates the skyline of San Nicola. Fishing boats crowd the waters between. Continue re...

10 must-see Mediterranean cruise ports

A Mediterranean cruise is the Whitman’s Sampler of journeys. A taste of Santorini here, a nibble of Naples there, a morsel of Mykonos this day and a bite of Barcelona that day. And like with a box of chocolates, first-timers never know what they’re gonna get. That is, unless they do their research or take the advice of those both experienced and honest.

Fun & Funky Restaurants in Brooklyn for Various Cuisines

Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - Many people might think Manhattan is the hub of New York’s foodie culture, but the diversity of Brooklyn has increasingly made it a hotspot for NYC foodies. With independently-owned restaurants, young rising chefs, and something for just about every cuisine, Brooklyn is a great place to eat—breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert! The thing about all these Brooklyn restaurants, though, is there is always a ne...

CEOs of Delta, American and United Take Out Full Page Ad for Protectionism

Qatar Airways owns a 49% stake in Air Italy and is attempting to revive what was once Meridiana into the dominant airline in Italy. With Delta partner Alitalia struggling, that seems possible. Although given Alitalia's challenges, draining subsidies from Air France and then Etihad and the government of Italy the Italian aviation market isn't a place that's likely to produce profits. Delta sniffed around looking to invest in Alitalia, but no deal has been done. US airlines don't want to compet...

How to visit Switzerland by train

“Taking a train trip through Switzerland” sounds like an overblown cliche of a dream vacation. Like “living in an above-water villa in Tahiti” or “eating your way through Tuscany.” Conjuring up images of sipping coffee as you gaze out big, panoramic windows at white mountains that shine so bright you have to squint. And there’s probably someone yodeling in the background. And that’s pretty much exactly what it is. We had the opportunity to travel with Vacations By Rail through one of the most...

How to Score Tickets to the Last Supper in Milan

Last Supper tickets in Milan is the activity most requested from clients. Unfortunately, tickets are notoriously hard to come by. It gets more difficult every year because so many of large tour operators buy up huge blocks of tickets as soon as they go on-sale, leaving almost none for the general public to book on their own. You’ll have the best luck if you book and plan far in advance. This is the advice I give my clients for how to book tickets to the Last Supper. A FEW THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT V...

Best Malta hikes to do this summer

The Mediterranean archipelago of Malta, just over 400 miles off Italy’s southern coast, encompasses multiple worlds.

1 day in Naples: a first-timer’s itinerary

Personally, it’s taken me half a lifetime to get to love Naples; maybe I’m becoming more attune to the ways of Southern Italy, because I love both Naples and Palermo, their craziness and quiet pockets, their warm welcomes and lilting accents. After numerous visits, I’m starting to get to know the capital of Campania a bit better, but I’m no expert. That’s why I asked my friend and colleague Vincenzo, who hails from neighbouring Caserta, to write a one-day Naples itinerary, an easy walking tour f...

5 cheapo alternative destinations in Europe

On the face of it, this should be a great time for Americans to think about traveling to Europe. Just a few years ago, it took $1.38 to buy a euro; today, a euro can be had for just $1.13. But despite this trend, Western Europe can still be expensive for Americans, and, for that matter, for most of the world’s travelers. Here’s one strategy for lowering costs: eschew particularly expensive locations for cheaper alternatives. As always, think broadly about alternatives. In some cases, a neighbori...

What Makes Italian Passion Unique

Passion can bloom anywhere. Think of France, with its culinary cathedrals; Spain, with its torrid bullfights; Argentina, with its sultry tango. How is la passione italiana different? “First of all, Italian passion is always personal,” says Marco Spagnoli, a prizewinning film director and critic as well as an astute cultural observer. The goal can be grand or modest—a multimedia spectacular or a family video, a new restaurant or a perfect re-creation of a great-grandmother’s lasagne. Its signifi...

Because the kids are finally out of school and every co-worker has just about had it by the time June rolls around, it’s one of the most popular months to travel, which means the usual suspects like New York City or Italy will be overrun with crowds. In order to avoid spending your entire vacation on line or in traffic, your best bet is to book a June holiday to an unexpected p...

A Scandinavian Flight Landed at the Wrong City in Italy Thursday

Late last month British Airways made worldwide news when a flight scheduled from London City airport to Dusseldorf, Germany instead landing in Edinburgh. Apparently the wrong flight plan was used. The plane flew to Edinburgh and back to London City the night before and that's what was repeated -- passengers discovering the error when they were welcomed to Edinburgh upon landing. Already we've seen another European flag carrier flying passengers to a wrong destination, just weeks later. Continu...
