i actually hate when people think that pizza is the main thing in Italian cuisine. hell no. for me it is only kinda snack. first thing that falls on my mind when somebody mentions italian cuisine is bistecca. of course, on rucola and leaves of grana.

There is no such thing as "Italian cuisine". There are many "Italian cuisines", each very different from the other.

I wouldn't say similar but it's better to us comparing to the German one. Also France and Spain aren't bad.

I also ate in Füssen at an Italian, at a place called Peperoncino.
Very good pizza. Also there was the game Germany-Denmark, all Italians were watching, and they cheered for the Danish goal

Also today we just bought a new bike for my girlfriend, this is the model

Only two hours on foot? Mountains south of Mayrhofen are quite rugged, the only doable access I think is the Pfitscherjoch/Passo di Vizze, and I think the time to get there is longer...

Yes, from Mayrhofen you drive or take a bus for 20 minutes to a big lake, and from there its a 2 hour walk to the Pfitscherjoch Hut, which is on Italian soil, but it belongs to the tourist office of Mayrhofen. From the Italian side its accessible by car, from Mayrhofen you have to go round via Brenner. And a lot of locals do that when a mess is being held there, some are too old to walk.

It's called "túrós csusza", pronounced like "turosh chusa". I like it very much :-)

Not anymore, the road has been closed at 3rd or 4th hairpin turn, more or less at 1720 m (the pass itself is at 2276 m)

I have the feeling that UNESCO is giving the award too easily. I'm not referring to Idrija mine, which I don't know, I'm sure it's worth. I'm referring to other things I know better, like the entire historical centre of Brescia that, quite frankly, doesn't deserve it.

Congrats, however! The other two being..?

Actually the tasteless and worse pizza I ever ate in my life was in... Italy. I had a night stop between two flights in Bergamo and went to a small pizzeria on the street where my hostel was. It was a mistake, all pizza's I've eaten in other countries all around Europe were better than this.
