Under $100 / Europe

This delightful ski town is a friendly place filled with locals more than visitors. Here’s what to do if you’re on a budget.


Start off with breakfast at Ristorante Bar Da Meto, where a light Italian meal will cost you around $8. If you don’t ski, there is still plenty to do here, including a visit to the “Forest of the Violins.” Just outside town, this forest is said to provide the wood used to make Stradivarius violins, some of the most highly-regarded in the world.


For lunch, check out Pizzeria La Vecchia Fornace for the best pizza in town ($12), as it wouldn’t be a trip to Italy without eating pizza. Then, head off to Kart San Martino to try the ice go karting ($25). If you enjoy karting, ice karting is an extra special challenge for even the most experienced drivers.


As the evening draws in, hole up at My Enoteca for a few glasses of wine ($5 each) before dinner at Ristorante La Stube ($20). Suitably refreshed, you can party the night away at Iceberg or El Barisel, where drinks cost around $4 each. Things get pretty lively, so clear your diary for the next day if you want a big night out.

Passport PD is the world’s first GaN technology-based travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse. Why is this important? If you break the single-use fuse in your typical travel adapter, you have only a few options — buy a new fuse, change the fuse yourself or buy a new travel adapter altogether. Additionally, if the fuse breaks and you don’t notice, then you could expect to come back to a fully charged device … only, you won’t.
