Hands up who's desperate to return to the bel paese (beautiful country)?
We know that The Upgrade listeners are as infatuated with Italy as us, so we decided to join forces with the duo behind Italy's coolest creative crash pad.
Tune in to this recommendation-packed episode as we're joined by Villa Lena's foundersLena Evstafieva and Jérôme Hadey, who share their Tuscan tips, under-the-radar restaurants in Rome and where to (hopefully) sip rosé this summer. That's amore.
Plus, India and Fleur chat about the group getaways they're hoping to get off the ground this year. Think beachy boltholes in Formentera, an art-filled hotel in Beirut and a mid-century cabin in the Welsh countryside. This episode is filled with good, old-fashioned escapism.
We'll see you for aperitivo.
