The Road Less Traveled…
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
– Robert Frost
The post-pandemic boom in tourism has given rise to many in Italy searching for more outdoor experiences.
We‘ve noticed increasingly more requests for nature hikes, hot air balloon as well as boat rides, truffle hunting, volcano climbing, beach days, and the like. Traditionally known for its wine and food, not to mention its history, culture, and art, Italy is quickly becoming a favorite destination of excursion goers and thrill seekers. While checking off that bucket list in Rome and Venice is nice, a true vacation should also include rejuvenating downtime that helps you refresh along the way to that next wine tasting, pizzeria, and gelato shop.
There are 25 Italian national parks registered with the Official List of Protected Natural Areas (EUAP), and about 150 national nature preserves. For a country that’s only the size of Arizona, that’s very impressive! With some of the world’s most astonishing landscapes spread across its 20 diverse regions, including 5 autonomous territories like the islands of Sicily and Sardinia, Italy is filled with natural wonders that will leave you awestruck.
On your next trip to Italy, consider getting out of the city and taking a road less traveled, it’ll make all the difference! Let us help you enjoy all that the “beautiful country” has to offer — schedule your free consultation today!
