With being in Milan for the last three days of our time in Italy, we sought the best pizza, Aperol Spritz and took one but not two trips to Jolibee – Philippines’ answer to KFC and their only branch in Europe.
We saved our pennies (cents) for our very last day which we chose to spend an hour North of Milan at Lake Como and the surrounding area.
With the afternoon spent in Bellagio, we visited the no.1 TripAdvisor ranked cheap eats restaurant, Bistrot Restaurant “Antichi Sapori.” Jessica and Charlyn both opted for the above seafood pasta which I can confirm tasted absolutely amazing and following our stop there, we scoured the picturesque shopping streets and enjoyed some heart shaped ice cream lollies in the shade.
As we took a one hour long boat journey from Bellagio to Como, the rain began to fall… hard! Our friends Ashley and Hannah were waiting for us but because of the weather, we didn’t venture any further than our dinner destination. Following their suggestion having been to this area of Italy earlier in the year, we had big expectations of this place, and boy did it deliver.
With a seafood theme running throughout as we sat watching a couple fish in the lake right beside us, we soaked up the final Italian flavours of this magnificent trip. Mussels, salmon, prawns and much more saw us so full that we took some back on the train to Milan with us for our final night.
We knew before coming that Italy is one of the top foodie destinations of the planet, but nothing can ever prepare you for tingled taste buds and the dreamy feelings that the best food provides. This last meal was the epitome of that and we cannot wait to return one day for more of the same.
We hope you’ve enjoyed reading all about our foodie travels to Italy this summer!
Where next, you ask? We know, but you’ll have to wait to find out…..
