- Enjoy a taste of Europe with Brisbane's Italian Week

April 29, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that people staying in accommodation in Brisbane towards the end of May who are missing some of culinary delights of Europe may be pleased to learn that the city is hosting an Italian Week.

From May 26th until June 2nd, anyone visiting Brisbane will be able to seek out a taste of Italy.

The festival does not just include food - it also extends to fashion, wine, arts, music, sports and, of course, cars.

Some events will take place ahead of the main Italian Week festivities, including the Italian Motor Vehicle Rally, which is being held at Stanthorpe on May 22nd and 23rd.

Following the official opening on May 26th, there will be a wide range of musical performances, food-oriented events and sporting action for anyone in Brisbane to enjoy.

People who want to learn how to drink coffee the Italian way could consider taking a Barista course at Di Bella Cafe.

Alternatively, anyone with an interest in the arts may want to head down to the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, where the Australian premier of Giovanni Pastrone's silent film Cabiria will take place on May 29th.

Certain events are ticketed, so anyone who wants to attend any of the activities should check the official website beforehand to ensure they can gain entry.
