Blogging about Rome & Lazio | Food | Wine | Art | Places | Traditions
We were recently chatting with a young American couple on a 2-week vacation in Italy - a bit of a dream holiday for them, so, understandably, they wanted to pack in as much as possible. They had given themselves a fairly rigorous schedule of an enjoyable yet exhausting whirlwind of all the main sites in several Italian cities (the usual suspects: Venice, Florence, Rome) but confessed that they had been overwhelmed by the richness and abundance of the culture in each of those places and felt like they needed a vacation from their vacation.
Happily, they found us (in actual fact they found us several weeks before they travelled and booked well in advance). Anyway, we whisked them out of Rome early morning on a wonderfully relaxing day trip - exploring at our new 'slower pace'. They tasted excellent wines, enjoyed a lot of delicious local cuisine, learned something of the territory's interesting history, but basically they were happy to chill out and soak up the beautiful countryside and said that it had been exactly what they needed … to get out of the city, breath deeply the fresh air and gaze out upon the stunning panoramas that the day afforded us, without having to think or plan or organise their own travel - a total 'no pressure' day as we did all of that for them.
We are always happy when we make others happy and above all meet or even surpass expectations.
If you think you might enjoy a brief hiatus from cosmopolitan life on your next visit to Rome then why not look us up before you travel to pre-arrange a stress-busting day trip of your own.
