To paraphrase Dorothy: 'There is no place like London.' I hope I can convince you of that here. Also check out my blog at damselwithadulcimer.wordpress.com and my theatre reviews at www.playstosee.com
For those of us who are Italiophiles, but unable to physically visit Italy, La Dolce Vita returns to London again. This exhibition showcases all things Italian, through gastronomy and wine, holidays, travel, fashion and design. This year the event is sponsored by Birra Moretti in association with Galbani cheeses.
A visit to the show will also give you the opportunity to tour the Mercato – the Italian food and drink market, where you will have a chance to sample the goods on offer and also to watch cookery demonstrations for further inspiration.
Top Italian chefs, such as Gino d'Acampo will also be in attendance to display their versions of la cucina Italia, and to give culinary advice to visitors.

If this all makes you thirsty, you can visit the Drinks Academy to find out a little more about Italian wines and spirits.

Finally, if experiencing Italy from London makes you itch to travel, you will be able to talk to travel experts and gain advice about booking vacations or buying holiday homes in la Bella Italia.
