The essential guides to dining, drinking and food shopping in Rome and in Istanbul, available now on iPhone and iPad.

Getting to the heart of a city’s cuisine can be a tall order, but food historian, journalist and blogger Katie Parla has spent years helping visitors and locals alike discover the dining cultures of Rome and Istanbul. The apps bring together dozens of carefully vetted and wholly endorsed venues including restaurants, cafes, wine bars, craft cocktail bars, gelato shops and bakeries and give users an insider’s view of only the finest food and drink each city has to offer.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, it works offline, so you don’t even have to worry about data roaming charges on your phone.
