The Passeggiata is a popular Italian ritual, so regardless of where you are in the bel paese, you should always be able to find and join the local stroll. It starts around dusk and happens most often in the historical center of the town or along the beachfront lungomare.
Andiamo a fare qualche vasca! (Literally, let’s go do some laps—as in a pool), Italians say to one another. However, this "cultural performance," as sociologists describe it, involves much more than strolling to and fro.
