It’s amazing how we, as a whole have, only just recently started to acknowledge the need to learn to love one’s self more. Sometimes, no matter how loved you are by the people around you, if you don’t learn to love yourself then you won’t be able to receive and register it within you.
If you’re on that journey of trying to find out more about yourself, then it will help to get to know yourself by getting into situations that you’re not familiar with. A simple change of location can help you with that. On that note, one of the best places to learn the lesson of self-love is in the beautiful country of Italy.
Italy offers plenty of beautiful places that you can visit, but at the same time, it has the right atmosphere to get you out of your comfort zone. In fact, it’s enough to allow you to find out more about the different aspects of yourself that you don’t know.
With that said, below are a few of the lessons you can learn during your stay in Italy:
Spiritual Renewal in Florence
Perhaps you are a spiritual person who feels like the hustle and bustle of life has dimmed down your spirit. Perhaps you feel the need to renew that part of your life. Then, the best place to do that would be in the wonderful city of Florence.
The edifices in the city of Florence will ignite a love of architecture in you. Yet, it’s a view of times that have passed and it will make you feel transcendental in away.
Since it gives you a view of the past, it will help you reconnect with your past as well. It provides the right kind of setting that will get you to renew your sense of spirit in life.
Find Inner Peace in Euganean Hills
In the Veneto region of Italy, one of the best places to visit would be the Euganean Hills, also known as the Colli Euganei. This group of hills is a regional park in Veneto that is filled with trees, vineyards, and even olive groves.
If you’re looking for a place to find peace and harmony away from city life, then booking a stay in one of their cottages is definitely the way to go.
The Euganean Hills allows you to get away from all the noise that is a usual part of our everyday lives. However, it doesn’t mean that you’re completely disconnected from the world. After all, there are plenty of towns nearby. It just provides you with an avenue to be away from it all should you desire to do so.
Fall in Love With Cinque Terre
Although this might not be the part of Italy that people mention first, it’s definitely a must-see when you visit the “Bel Paese”. Nothing uplifts one’s spirit more than the beauty of the surrounding, which is what you will learn to appreciate in Cinque Terre.
Cinque Terre is a coastal area with vibrant and colourful houses set across a shining blue sea in the background. Falling in love with your surroundings will help you fall in love with yourself, especially as you experience the quaint beauty of this coastal area.
When you’re there, why not go on a boat ride or a swim if the weather is right for it?
