We're going to Italy for the first time and I have always had this romantic picture of eating in a vineyard or orchard.
I realized this idea came from an old (60s) movie set in Italy but likely an American film. It was about a small town where a young divorcee (maybe widow) came to live and upset all the women because their men were so interested in her. The women went on strike refusing to sleep with any of the husbands. Of course the young woman met a single man and all ends well but there is one scene where the whole town eats outside under trees possibly at a wedding dinner. I always thought that looked so beautiful and it has been linked to Italy in my mind since. Given that they were sheltered under trees it was likely an orchard or olive trees.
Besides wondering if anyone remembers this movie I was wondering if eating outside in the country is likely to be something we'll get a chance to do? Given that we are going in August I understand that it will likely be too hot to be enjoyable but something in my romantic spirit is hoping.
