THE 5: WHAT WE ARE OBSESSED WITH THIS MONTH

MARCH

 

PRANZO AL MARE

 

You are in Rome, it’s Sunday, it’s sunny, and you are wondering where all the Romans are?

The answer is one, “PRANZO AL MARE.”

 

The Roman Coast is full of great restaurants by the sea… a few of our favorites are:

Isola del Pescatore ( Santa Severa), La Baia ( Fregene) and Romolo (Anzio)

 

SCIURA

 

Wealthy, a little snobbish, ‘the classic’ married Milanese woman , always perfect, moderately unpleasant, and impeccably elegant. You’ll find her strolling down the street or in one of those historic Milanese bars wearing fur, foulards, and single tone purse, her hair always done preferably white, grey or “Milanese blonde”.  

Just like the routine of the rigorously elegant Sciuras the city holds high its standard on the dangerously delicious Costoletta.

GENOVA

 

The Italian Riviera is more than just Cinque Terre and Portofino… there are a multitude of colorful unique sea towns one after the other and one more beautiful than the other..starting off with the unexpected Genova, Italy’s largest seaport city which is too often underrated!

The Lady of the Sea, the birthplace of pesto and ravioli! A deeply layered and boldly authentic city, a gritty yet splendid maze of narrow alleys that alternate with spacious streets filled with ancient churches and noble homes. From its lighthouse, the “Lanterna de Zena” to the old town Genova offers a daringly authentic experience.Walk through the “caruggi” (the colorful medieval alleys), try the “panissette” the golden pancakes of chickpea flour, overdose on “trofie al pesto” and snack on “fugàssa” (genovese focaccia).

 

HERE’S A TEASER TO GET YOU EXCITED FOR YOUR VISIT

LOMBARDY

 

The history of Northern Italy passes through Lombardy. As does the history of the development and industrialization of our beautiful country. But Lombardy is also a fascinating region from a scenic point of view, where the imposing peaks of the Alps, bordering Switzerland, and the Pre-Alps which slope down towards the Po Valley, are crossed by rivers that give life to some of the largest and most important lakes of Italy. The best way to discover it? By Car.
