Listen Now: Italy’s New Alternative Sunbathing Options
Can’t hit the beach this holiday weekend? Find the next best thing.
Europe is easing some restrictions that have been in place since the pandemic began, but travel is still slow to pick up, so Italians are not able to head to their favorite vacation spots on the coast. Now one building owner in Milan is solving the problem with an alternative place to sunbathe.
Right in the middle of Milan’s main business district sits italy’s tallest skyscraper, and next to that is a patch of grass. The patch of grass features eighty parasols and deck chairs to give people the feeling of a little luxury. Each setup is a good distance from the ones next to it since social distancing rules remain in effect.
Right now, the park within the city is free but in the next few days people will have to pay about nine dollars for a place in the sun. Visitors to the park say it’s a great alternative for people who can’t get away.
And with ninety three percent of italians staying put this summer that’s a big crowd.
