Our word of the week is “passeggiata”.

Passeggiata” is really the perfect word for this season! It means “walk” and comes from “passo“, which means “step” (in Latin “passus“).

In Italy going for a walk is very common, not only in the countryside or by the sea but also in the city centre: people normally walk along the main streets with family or friends during the weekend, it’s a sort of ritual!
