Women’s Travel Tip: Curiosity is a Better Guide

Enjoy this tip from our community!

Let curiosity be your guide, not a guidebook. While strolling through the sidewalks of Sorrento, a cookbook caught my eye – it was filled with beautiful photos of Sorrento and recipes from Ristorante Da Gigino. Being told the restaurant was a few minutes’ walk away, I immediately made my way there and was fortunate to get a reservation for a party of eight that evening. We were in absolute heaven – swooning over fabulous hors d’oeuvres, platters full of homemade pasta, carafes of house red wine and mouthwatering desserts, within an authentic stone walled candlelit atmosphere. Dinner for 8 was about $200 US dollars, including tip and 4 chef signed cookbooks which our waiter presented us with at the end of our meal.
