Winter is the finest time to daydream of summer travel, and it’s also the prime time to plan your summer stay.
For most, Florida will do, but it’s far more rewarding to think within more enthralling parameters.
I traveled to northern Italy a few winters ago, and while my experience was well cultured and unforgettable, I knew that a summer in Southern Italy would be in my ideal future.
Locals will tell you that there’s a drastic difference between northern and southern Italy, from agriculture to accents and that it’s worth your while to explore the differences.
Southern Italy is also one for the eyes. With colorful homes stacked on hills and waves crashing along the shoreline all day and night long, it’s picturesque.
Because the coastal region of Italy is flooded in ripe fruit and vegetables, as well as fresh food from the sea, you’re bound to find delectable dishes all over the southern region, promising to please your palate every time, making southern Italy a great destination this summer!
“In Italy, they add work and life on to food and wine.” – Robin Leach
