Belluno is one of the cutest cities ever.
Surrounded by the Dolomite Mountains
its name derives from the Celtic language:
belo-donum, which means splendid hill.
It is small (population 35,000), elegant,
quiet, and hardly any tourists around!

In a bakery I got some traditional breads (including pumpkin bread) and then Kiffel, a sort of savoury croissant, typical of the area. In German the kiffel are called Kipfels, I found a recipe here, I have to say that the ones I got in Belluno were superb, with linseed and sunflower seeds, if I'll have time I will try to make them one day...one day... :-)
Or maybe I'll go back to Belluno!
