We are so happy to see that Slow Travel continues! We used the site extensively when planning a 6-week trip to Italy and France in 2011. We found wonderful apartments and even had the chance to meet with other Slow Travelers while in Florence. We've been to a number of European destinations since then, including England, Scotland, Ireland, Czech Republic and elsewhere, always keeping the slow travel philosophy in mind. We are now planning a return trip to Italy over the Christmas holidays, and look forward to hearing your advice and sharing our adventures!
