Buon Weekend – Il Rientro

After a very long summer, Il Riento is upon us.  My friend Erica wrote eloquently about the return of vacationing Italians HERE.

I hope everyone had a great summer.  Mine was weird.  Seriously.  Next year there WILL be some changes.

For example, next time I go Anguilla I will not work the entire time.

Meads Bay, Anguilla, BWI

I will not spend hot ass August in Rome.  Instead I hope to rent a place near Marina di Pietrasanta.

Room with a view, Marina di Pietrasanta

I went to the Tuscan coast last weekend for my birthday.  It was my first time there (pics later).  It was lovely.  I wish I could have stayed longer.

Not sure if this song was a hit in America, but it was huge in Europe. It will always remind of this summer.

Buon weekend a tutti!!

    I heard this song at Eurpean cup, this year. It does feel like summer jamming this song.

    Arlene, I do have a question about Rome in December. I would like to rent a place for 6 Weeks. What advice can you give me. I have been in the summer but never in winter season. What will I do for heat? Do many places close for the season? How to find a comfortable rental that’s affordable?

  2. Most apartments will have heat. If for some reason they don’t, there will be an electric heater.

    A few places might close the week between Christmas and New Years but it’s nothing like what happens during August.

    Rental/hotel prices are lower in early December but Christmas week is a very popular time for tourists because of Rome/Vatican City is the home of the Roman Catholic Church.

    Check Trip Advisor.com and Slowtrav.com for rentals.
