Summer of 2022, I’ll be writing my thesis, and I’d like to spend a month doing so in Italy from mid May through mid June. I lived in Milan for a year and experienced a lot of the popular spots (Rome, Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre, Naples, Capri, Turin, Bologna, and Verona.) I’m looking to explore small towns/cities, and I’d love your suggestions from any region!
My plan is to spend about 6-7 meandering days in each while I write. My priorities are:
- Delicious food
- Lovely surroundings (whether it’s rolling hills, pastel buildings, the sea side, mountains, all are welcome)
- Reachable by public transportation
Nightlife and big ticket attractions aren’t necessary. I love wandering around the streets, eating, reading, and drinking wine. If you’d describe a place as: charming, romantic, atmospheric or cozy, I’ll probably love it. I speak enough baby Italian to squeak by, so I’m not terribly worried about the language barrier. Thanks in advance!
