Feeling burnt out by our fast-paced, always-on hyper-connected worlds Time to unplug and get back to the land. And there's no better place to do that than Umbria, the green heartland of Italy, tucked away just south of Tuscany. On this eight-day slice of rural life, you'll 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 don't worry; you're not just living on the farm - 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.
