EVENTS AND FESTIVALS IN JULY AND AUGUST, IN ITALY AND AROUND THE WORLD. ALL DATES, TO COMBINE HOLIDAYS WITH FUN AND TRADITIONS.
EVENTS AND FESTIVALS IN JULY AND AUGUST, IN ITALY AND AROUND THE WORLD.
July and August have always been months of departure and travel. Feel like escaping, wanting to have fun by participating in musical and folkloristic events, discovering new traditions and customs. I have always been attracted to the popular festivals of every region and state I visited. Especially in summer I like to combine relaxation with fun. So when I travel, I always go in search of particular, suggestive events, able to give me an indelible memory in the heart, and even richer in nuances. That’s why I’ve decided for months, every month, to share with you the most beautiful events, the must-see festivals in Italy, Europe, and the World. To help you not lose anything if you are planning a trip, a departure, planning a truly complete experience. Because traveling is also this.
Sometimes, instead, it happens, to live in a place and not know that for years, every year, maybe even near, a few kilometers from your city, one of these festivals is taking place that you never knew about.
Now take a pen and paper, look for your next destination and mark the dates to enjoy your summer to the fullest … I have tried to enclose all the most beautiful holidays, obviously there are so many others. But these are certainly the most beautiful …
