8. Eat & Drink What They're Most Famous For
Piggy backing off of that last point, you get a more well-rounded appreciation for the town if you sample the dessert, dish, or drink that they're most famous for. In Salzburg it's their schnapps (and that journey led me to a hole in the wall bar that let me test-taste flavors that included everything from pine cones to elder-flower.) In Lake Bled it was Bled Cream Cake, and in Bratislava it was Borovička, which burned like fire going down.
