Passeggiata- a place to promenade, stroll

Passeggiata (pronounced pas-seg-già-ta) is not exclusively Italian. In Spain and Latin America, they call it the paseo. In Greece, the volta. Far beyond warm-weather places, the Germans enjoy a spaziergang and the Swedes a kvallpromenad. In English...and French, we call it a promenade— describing the activity as well as the place where we do it.
