I Love Lucy fans will surely remember the Italian episode where Lucy is scouted to be in an Italian film titled Bitter Grapes, so she goes to a winery to “soak up a little color.” I love that episode and already tried my
hand feet at stomping grapes. That wasn’t the way to experience Italy for Lucy and isn’t the way I want to experience Italy, either.
I love the soft pinks and accent colors of the artwork. Ironically, I think that all the modern white would provide a nice contrast to the ancient ruins and rustic colors I imagine I’d enjoy as we explore the city.
We like staying in apartments because we can spread out, cook some of our meals, and stay in a neighborhood. I’ve heard great things about the Trastavere neighborhood, with its winding streets and ivy-covered buildings. That’s the kind of local color I’m looking for near Rome!
GowithOh is hosting a fabulous contest. They are challenging bloggers to choose the apartment they’d like to rent through GowithOh in 17 cities across Europe. Bloggers are asked to blog about that apartment for the chance to be chosen as a Guest Tester for their blogger competition. The prize? 1000 Euro’s worth of accommodation!
And they have a great offer for all fans of their Facebook page too! Just go to their website and choose an apartment you’d love to guest test, then tell them why on their Facebook page. You’ll go into the competition to win 500 Euros towards your dream stay!
I’m definitely going to Italy next year to soak up a little local color. It would be even better if I get the chance to GowithOh!
Which European city do you think you’d pick for a contest like this?
