I've been lucky enough to spend the past week in Italy - a nation that's addicted to caffeine and carbohydrates. And rightfully so - everything here tastes so damn good!! We've been spending most of our time in Milan, but over the long weekend we went on a road trip through Florence, Pisa and a stunning little Tuscan town called Lucca. I'm in love with Lucca. It's an old medieval city full of the tiniest, winding lane ways within a giant wall. It's so easy to just walk around and happily get lost, taking in the gorgeous surroundings. There was four of us, so we rented a four-seater bicycle and rode around - it was hilarious, and a great way to move around as a group.

Milan

The compulsory breakfast in Italy. Finding eggs is impossible.

The only place in Milan we could find with a real breakfast - a stunning cafe called Pandenus with homemade bread, the freshest sandwiches, incredible coffee and the sweetest blood orange juice.

Florence

Ordering food is the toughest decision you'll have when holidaying in Italy. The good thing is - it's always a win win.
