La Prosciutteria: from Milano to Firenze

In the next days we will be travelling through Namibia in an intensive road trip that we have planned with great enthusiasm. Thus we might not have always access to Internet connection. Nevertheless, don’t stop making your comments, we’ll try to reply them as soon as possible. And in the meantime we hope to collect amazing experiences to share in this blog. Thanks for reading us!

We travel not only to discover places, but also cultures. And we think that gastronomy is an essential part to every culture.

When we visited Milano in the winter last year we, of course, fell in love with the city (the fact that our visit coincided both with Carnival and Saint Valentine’s Day might have helped!) but especially with the nice dinner we had in this small non-restaurant located in the Brera quarter.

And thus, while planning your trip to Kyoto, you start reading and searching for those hotspots that you shouldn’t miss.

Below you’ll find out the main shrines and moments from our visit to Kyoto.
