Italy 2015: Milano Eats

I thought about maybe saving this post for next week and doing a little lazy Memorial Day Weekend recipe roundup. But to be honest, I was too lazy to do that lazy post - I'm such a sloth. Anyway, if you need help, check out my grill tag and ice cream tag for some summer recipe inspiration.

Milano was our final city in Italy. Frankly, I wasn't that excited about it because it was a bustling huge city and compared to the four tiny gems we'd visited prior to, it was daunting and seemed a bit boring. However, it was still enjoyable and food-wise it was great, albeit, expensive.
We arrived in Milano super early in the morning. We flew in from Bari and after dropping off our bags, we went for a stroll. We headed to the Duomo - where else? - but before heading in, we grabbed a snack.

Italy 2015: Polignano A Mare Eats

Polignano A Mare was another city I found through Pinterest. I saw its beautiful blue waters, its amazing rock-carved buildings, and I knew I needed to visit.

I love visiting sea towns because it means fresh and delicious seafood. And luckily, again, the food here was really affordable.
We ate breakfast at Tipicamente in Alberobello before hopping in a car and driving to Polignano.

Italy 2015: Alberobello Eats

Alberobello is one of the cutest towns I've ever been to. Everyone's been asking how I even found out about it and my answer is, "Pinterest." It's incredibly picturesque and different. The trullo (which are the adorable houses) are hundreds of years old and they are really beautiful. It reminded me of a Smurf village.

Not only was it beautiful, but it was a delicious experience. Mussels and orecchiette are the two must-have dishes here. Another thing to note is that the food here is super affordable. Maybe it was because we'd just come from Liguria, which is much more populated and touristy, but seriously, the price of our cheques were basically cut in half for twice as much food.
We arrived in Alberobello late at night, but lucky for us, restaurants were still open for dinner.
