This will be me for the next few weeks. What does the sign mean? Well, you will usually see some type of sign that says “Chiuso per Ferie” on most family run cafes, stores and restaurants for at least a few weeks in August if not the whole month. It means “Closed for Vacation.” Most offices shut down too. Yes…a complete shut down….to unplug BUT recharge! That is what I will be doing. Wishing everyone happy summer travels!
