Road trip in Italy - Italy around on your own
Finally it was summer and we could travel again. It was also a year ago we were last at an airport. Now the trip had come for the summer holidays in Italy, where we had booked 13 days in three different accommodations in central and northern Italy.
I'm the type who's not much for staying in the same place for a week or two. I would like to experience some different things, so therefore we booked three different hotels in the days we were there.
The first stop was Locanda Poggioleone in Castiglione del Lago on Lake Trasimeno - Lake Trasimeno in Danish - which is Italy's fourth largest lake. Here we were to stay for five days and experience parts of the regions Umbria og Toscana.
We had rented a car at the airport in Pisa and we had it available every 13 days.
After a single day of relaxation at the hotel, we went on day two for wine tasting south of Assisi. It was booked from home and lay far out in the country on a hilltop between Assisi and Spello.
It was a great wine tasting with five different kinds of wine including food. It can no doubt be recommended to try a real wine tasting at a local winery in Italy.
