Useful Information

Guys, it is worth remembering that some opening hours may change according to the season, so check the info about opening hours with the restaurant. A good suggestion is to book in advance, mainly on two occasions: during the summer, in high season, when the city is FULL; and for dinner, which is usually the busiest time. Find out here How to book a restaurant in Italy?

Obviously, the city offers a wide range of restaurants: the more centralized – the more expensive! If you want more affordable places, move away from the center or look for them in the adjacent streets, those little known by tourists. One suggestion is to ask if the hotel where you are staying has any suggestion: sometimes they are affiliated to some places and can even offer you a discount. Also ask if the hotel has a restaurant: sometimes they have (great) restaurants and it ends up overlooked in our madness to find a good and cheap place to eat.
