Festa Della Repubblica … Viva Italia!

We interrupt this regularly scheduled Travel Tip Tuesday to bring you a very important notice.

1) Today Italians around the world celebrate the Festa della Repubblica, the day-63 years ago-that a national vote defeated the monarchy and Italy became a republic. (And they say America is young!)

2) For the first time in, oh, I don’t know, five, six weeks, our bed and breakfast is empty. While I certainly don’t hope this habit sticks, it is nice to have a day off every now and then to enjoy Catanzaro.

3) My husband and I are taking advantage of the festa and of the temporary vacancies at Il Cedro and plan to spend the day together… to sleep in, to go to the beach or if it rains, to cuddle up with a good movie.

So … no travel tips this week. In case you missed them, here are a few popular Travel Tip Tuesday posts.

Until next time … Buon Viaggio!
