I also noticed the price of bottles of wine while in the supermarket: two euros. And vine ripened tomatoes. That. Smell. So. Good? 99 cents a kilo! Stone fruit is in season right now and they have varieties I have never seen before. Just check out the peaches here. And the flavour is really concentrated. In the evenings we have been popping in to a local bar for a quick drink before dinner. With our order we receive complimentary bar snacks. Tiny ham or mortadella panini, bowls of peanuts, crostini. Two or three plates with each round of drinks. Who needs dinner?
I have been trying to find a panicceria, a bread shop, in the neighbourhood for the past few mornings. In the end I gave up and bought two cornets and a brioche over the counter at the local bar to take home for breakfast. The total cost including two coffees? Five euros fifty! You can't get two coffees back home for that.
