Breakfast options

You’re in Italy, which means that traditional breakfast is rather scarce compared to Western standards. If you want to do as the locals do, head out for Pasticceria Mastai vis-à-vis the main station and grab some of their fancy pastries (mostly sweet, but also some salty stuff) at the counter and get your Cappuccino, also freshly squeezed juices (Spremuta) on offer. For breakfast ensuite we recommend to buy some bread at Balgera, get some freshly sliced Bresaola, and buy some local cheese at U2. For sweeties, try out the local Chestnut spread!
