In August Italians take their holidays. They go to the beach for the most part. Businesses close down and homes are shuttered. They take it very seriously.
This weekend the exodus had already started and we were able to get out and go for a walk to explore our city...and we didn't really have to share it with anyone!
It was slightly eerie / zombie apocolypse-esque but really perfect for photos.
I thought I'd share our typical neighborhood walk with y'all. We take this walk most weekends...we LOVE getting out and experiencing our city. We often stop for vegetables and fruit, a full liter at the milk machine, bread, coffee, and spritz aperol. Gelato is mandatory!
All photos are in order from when we walk out our door and as the walk progresses.
