Oh wow! That's an extensive list!! Bless you! I'm going to list down everything because data charges is probably going to kill me thereafter! What about souvenirs? Anything I should look for specifically from each city? I know I should get the basics like Murano pendants, pasta, biscotti, olive oil, silk scarves... Anything else that's typically Italian that's not
Common?

It'll be so great if you could. It would be a bummer of we have to
Eat margherita pizza or seafood pizza throughout our stay ..

Yeah I've read and it's pretty good and it gives you a rough expenditure average too. Right now I don't even know where I'm staying yet so it's hard to figure out the eateries that's near our hotel.

What specific souvenirs and food (non pork) I should try?

Hi all,

I will be in Milan, Lugano, Venice, Pisa, Tuscany, Florence and Rome respectively. Is there any specific souvenirs I should look out for at each city? I am travelling with 2 young children so it'll be hard to leisurely stroll around to look for things so i'll appreciate any tips I can get with the average price of the item if anyone knows. Also I would love to try as much food/ snacks that is not easily available in Asia where I am from. Found out about certain coffee I should try, I know I have to try cannoli! Buy some biscottis home and pastas... What other off-the-beaten-path stuffs I should try?

Oh great idea! I will do just that! I do not know exactly where I will be staying at yet so guess its seafood for the first few days then ... Until I get my bearings and ask around ... Thanks again!

I read that ALL halal restaurants in Italy serves alcohol in their premises so at least we can expect it... Its just that I have 2 young children with me and as much as they love pastas and pizzas there´s a limit to how much they can take. So am thinking of cooking simple fried rice or noodles or sandwiches to last them until we can have proper filling meals...

Thanks so much! Love your blog by the way... i´m really starting to look forward to my trip and get excited to try the food (without the meats and wine of course!)

Thanks Vinoroma! We already anticipate that we´ll have to have fish, seafood at the regular restaurants but am going to try to find some meat to just balance it out... apart from Rome, are you familiar with Milan? That will be our first stop so if there are kebab stalls in popular area it´ll be good to know.

Hi all..

My family and I will be in Italy in 2 weeks time and wondering where we can buy basic ingredients like eggs, milk (from the supermarket) and halal meats (we are Muslim) in Milan, Venice, Pisa, Florence & Rome? Also is there any recommended halal restaurants at the abovementioned cities?
