Experience La Dolce Vita, Greek and Italian Spring Break!
There is no better way to start this spring than with a break trip to the place that defines and practices “the good life”! La Dolce Vita (translated either as “the sweet life” or “the good life”) refers to the Italian approach to living and attitude about life. Every meal is a celebration, every meeting is a party, and very day is a blessing.
During early spring, both Greece and Italy have few tourists, the prices are lower than in high season, and the weather is getting warm. March is a great time for worry-free, stress-free, perfect Spring Break!
Serene and idyllic Greek islands, ancient Athens, and eternal Rome. These destinations alone are enough to lure anyone who loves travel and discovery.
