Make believe you’re in Rome

The shopping. The art. The food. Here’s where to taste la dolce vita in Boston.

DAY ONE

Begin at this candy shop tucked away on the second floor right before the bypass that connects the Westin Copley Boston to Copley Place. Gourmet Boutique (10 Huntington Avenue, Boston, 617-266-2906, gourmetboutique.net) carries a wide range of European sweets you’d find at any Italian tabaccaio or airport duty-free shop; stock up on all the Venchi, Amedei, and Kinder you can carry.
