Today it has been officially 1 week since the Italian lockdown is over and people are allowed to freely go outside. And after more than 60 days of restrictions, everyone was looking forward to going outside again. I included!
So, on the first day of freedom, my flatmate and I went to have a spritz at some bar. It’s not advised to stay inside bars and restaurants, but most of them have terraces which are safer and nicer options. After all, it’s summertime! The terraces were full of people. Everyone was happily enjoying this new phase.
As expected, there were some people not wearing masks and staying too close to each other but fortunately for now, those people represent the minority.
Another great thing about this new phase is that we can finally move inside of our region without any justification (yes, we still have to sign an “autocertificazione” to leave the region). And that means that I can still visit someplace before I go back home. I did some research on places to visit in Veneto and I will leave a list of some in case you wanna visit this region:
- Venice (which I already visited many times)
- Padova (my city)
- Bassano del Grappa (already visited)
- Verona (already visited)
- Vicenza (already visited)
- Garda Lake
- Dolomites (I wanted to go there, but during wintertime, not now)
- Asolo; Castelfranco Veneto; and Cittadella (all of those walled cities)
- Treviso (capital of another province inside Veneto region)
After considering many factors as, for example, the connections (because there are still many cuts in public transportation), I chose to visit Treviso. The city is nice and it has the typical architecture of this region. But it’s not very big, so I actually spent most of my day there just sitting on a terrace drinking coffee and having a drink. And let’s be serious: just sitting down surrounded by such beautiful buildings is already worth my time!
Now it’s time to start getting ready to leave – packing. But I still have time to wander around Padova and to have a Hugo (this drink was one of my best post lockdown discoveries).
