Once you have walked around the palace, experienced the high life, and feel satisfied with shopping until you drop, the French Riviera and Italian coastline is at your doorstep to enjoy. The train runs all day into both countries and can take visitors up and down the coast with ease. The all-time MUST restaurant out of all that we visited was the famous ‘Mushroom Restaurant’ called ‘Ristorante Ca' Mea’.
Tucked in the Italian mountains, this restaurant offers an experience like no other. With the low price of 34 Euros, guests are welcomed to eat and drink until they are full but do not order from a menu. Dishes are served to the table constantly in the traditional five-course way with their home-grown mushrooms as the star of most of their dishes. Once it appears guests are tired of those dishes, the next course is brought out, and so it goes.
The same is done with all courses, wine, and grappa. It was an extremely special day out with the saying “dolce far niente” being embodied in every way.
