Now that the five-day quarantine has been lifted, we’d love to hear about your favourite city in Italy. Not big hitters like Florence or Naples, but the smaller, more idiosyncratic jewels that dot this country – Cremona with its violin history, Modena’s balsamic vinegar lofts or the ancient stones of Matera. Tell us what you saw and did that made it special – maybe it was a lovely place to stay, a brilliant family restaurant, the architecture or a local festival – with websites and prices if appropriate.
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 7 September at 9am BST
