July around Paciano

Country Slow Living

July around Paciano  – The summer months are the busiest times to travel to Italy, but for good reason. There are many activities happening all over the country from the country to city. One issue you may find is the unbearable heat and copious amounts of people in the city. So, the best way to combat those issues are taking your travels to the hillside towns and countryside. Stay with the locals during all the many music and food festivals occurring during the month of July!
