Italy sure knows how to do sensual pleasures right: stylish Vespas, intoxicating vino, vibrant piazze, and crispy pizzas covered in garden-fresh produce populate this country where la dolce far niente (literally, the sweetness of doing nothing) is a national pastime. Striking out on your own, likely on a budget, you’ll open yourself up to what someone who stays at the swankiest hotels and eats at all the five-star restaurants misses: making connections with the people and way of life of this chaotic wonderland
