Feeling burnt out by our fast-paced, always-on hyper-connected world? Time to unplug and get back to the land. And theres no better place to do that than Umbria, the green heartland of Italy. On this eight-day slice of rural life, youll hang out on the grounds of a converted farmhouse, soaking in the pleasures of a simpler time like helping out around the farm, feeding the livestock, and making pasta. But dont worry; youre not just a hired hand you can hike into the hills, go for a swim, explore the nearby towns of Gubbio and Assisi, or do absolutely nothing at all. Work: optional. Fun: mandatory.
