10 amazing airbnbs in Italy for a post-lockdown getaway From the design villa on the lake to the farmhouse in the Tuscan countryside

Breathe in the scent of peach trees in bloom, harvest vegetables from the garden and cook with friends, swim in the pool surrounded by olive and oak trees or discover the most hidden corners of three major Italian cities. If in the last months of lockdown, confined by red and orange zones, you have dreamed of nothing else, now is the time to plan a little relaxing getaway, to fill your eyes with beauty and not only with TV series and Neflix. You don't need to make big trips to enjoy a little bit of freedom, just get out of the house and look around and maybe switch the usual four domestic walls with a luxurious villa or a farmhouse in the countryside.
