la dolce vita

To avoid Royal Wedding madness & take full advantage of a fortuitous succession of London bank holidays, I'm escaping to Italy for 2 weeks at the end of April. If you have the time & inclination, please share your best places in Venice, Rome &/or the isle of Capri. Accommodations are settled (Casa Howard, AD Place & Punta Tragara), but I'd love to hear about all of the shops, museums, restaurants, walks, gondoliers, gelato, glass blowers and sandal makers that made your trip fabulous. 


  1. I was in Venice at the end of Feb. and our best dinner was at Al Paradiso which is on a small side street in the Rialto bridge area. Here is my TA review (I am not tooting my own horn, it is just easier to post the link rather than type it all out):

    Also in Venice, I adored the store Venetia Studium ( which has lovely scarves, purses, etc.. all made out of crushed velvet and Fortuny-esque fabrics.

  2. On Capri buy sandals at Canfora, Jackie O. had sandals made there.
