a day in italy10:30:00 AM
The trip recap continues!
The day after the big party, we decided to take a little road trip to our favorite Italian border town, Susa. Originally founded by the Gauls, Susa eventually became a part of the Roman Empire, and remains of the Roman city are still found in the town's central square. It's small and charming, and one of our favorite places to visit in Italy. Oh, and it's only an hour's drive from our village!
Once we'd figured out the parking situation (thank God for my dad's school-taught Italian!), we couldn't wait to start exploring.
But first? Food.
Thanks to an extremely patient and well-organized waitress, we sat down and ordered at one of our favorite trattoria.
Followed by secondi: tagliatelle con funghi porcini (tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms), bistecca alla fiorentina (steak a la Florentine), alici indorate e fritte (fried fresh anchovies), cotoletta alla milanese (breaded veal cutlet), pizza, and more. I swear I meant to take more photos, but we were so hungry and everything was so delicious that I had to eat it! I hope you'll forgive me☺.
Quite a view, eh?
Maybe next time??
Juuuuust kidding. Sort of.
Anyone looking to buy something? Just be warned, you'll have to beat my offer (free baking to the landlord for life).
The town is full of lovely little winding streets with hidden stores and restaurants. There's even free seating for when you need a little shopping break:
