We rent tourist/business apartments and villas in Italy ( Florence, Venice, Tuscan Countryside/seaside, Ligurian countryside/seaside).
Why would one rent an apartment? Because this is THE way of knowing more about the place you are visiting, its inhabitants, its tradition, food, wine… culture is not “just museums”… it’s people, basically!
Don’t be just a “tourist”, become a “traveller”!
…and in this period, a house “of your own” where to stay protects you best!
cook your own food, avoid crowded restaurants and bars…
