If there’s one thing we embrace to the ends of our pretty plates in Italy, it’s not just what we eat –– it’s how.
Laughing over limoncello on summer nights with new friends. Kneading dough together to make fresh orecchiette pasta. Donning our beach cover-ups for dinners overlooking spitting volcanoes.
These experiences are all rooted in embracing the Italian art of sharing.
Sharing a bottle of wine with loved ones and welcoming those you just met. Sharing meals and working your way through courses together, in spoonfuls. And sharing your time, which can get beautifully bendy in the right company.
But you don’t have to be born here to do all these things.
Here are some ways you can embrace eating the Italian way –– it’s slower, more intentional and we can all take a basil leaf from their playbook.
When we think of the Italian Riviera, we imagine pretty pastel towns, panoramic aperitivo views and dipping our toes into turquoise waters.
The Italian Riviera is a stretch of croissant-shaped coastline wedged between the south of France and Tuscany, and it’s the stuff of photographers’ dreams.
Tiny towns tucked into hillsides. Beautiful boats bobbing at glittery harbors. Salty-air strolls in the sunshine, where wide-brimmed hats and sexy shades come out to play.
That’s what the Italian Riviera feels like.
Read on to dive into our insider intel on the region, plus our top picks for which towns you should consider visiting along the Italian Riviera –– and why!
Can you believe we’re almost halfway through 2019?
And then we’re in 2020, baby!
Which begs the question… what would you love to do with the rest of 2019?
I’m hankering for an adventure! Like a doing-something-I’ve-never-done-before adventure. I’m a big dreamer, so thinking big for me means plotting out new ways to build the company, new real estate purchases (if I lay eyes on a crumbling masserie in Puglia, hold me back!), or hatching plans for exciting family experiences (sailing and homeschooling our 10 year old).
On that note … I have a list of adventures below.
