If you have read my last post, you could see the real reason of our visit and stay in Modena, but even if Osteria Francescana is not something that would interest you, Modena, I’m sure, would.
Osteria Francescana has been on Debeli’s list for a long time and that means on mine as well. I wasn’t sure how or when we would finally dine in Modena, but I knew it will be one day.
Rome may be a cliché but it’s actually all you need. It’s art and food. What more do you need, right?
Everybody knows that Italians are big gourmets and food lovers, but only when it comes to their own, Italian, cuisine. Pizzas, pasta, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil, garlic and various aromatic herbs (basil, rosemary, oregano) are just some of the few ingredients out of what you can prepare simple and fast meal.
The last day in Milan we visited a couple of historical destinations and an aquarium.
The second day in Milan started with a typical Italian breakfast and ended with a fancy dinner. Why? Well it was my birthday 😀 What did we eat you will read in a special post dedicated to Milanese cuisine.
I do not know about you, but my birthday is always at the same time. In the end of January, which is not the best time to travel, but when you live in northern Europe then any trip to the south is more than welcoming. So, I booked us a trip to Milan, Italy.
