Outside Together with Pia Baroncini

At Under Canvas, we believe that being outdoors inspires and connects friends, families, and loved ones. We believe in being outside together. Because when you disconnect from modern life, you’re able to connect with your best outdoor self, your family, your loved ones, and the natural splendour around you. In the spirit of getting outside together, we’re connecting with some of our past guests to revisit their Under Canvas stays and gain a bit of insight on their experience stepping outside with us. First up: Pia Baroncini.

Lara Pia Baroncini (Arrobio), also known as @piabaronicini on Instagram is the Creative Director of LPA—a women’s fashion label, the Host of Everything is the Best—a podcast and expert guide to simply not feeling alone, and the soon-to-be momma of a baby girl!

Last July, Pia and her husband, Davide, hit the open road with their adorable pups, Chichi and Nutella, to join us in the great outdoors at Under Canvas Grand Canyon. Pia documented her quick break from Los Angeles for her Instagram followers…sharing a few insider tips along the way: decide which national park area you want to explore and choose your Under Canvas location accordingly, be aware of the weather, and in Pia’s words, “yes, the food is great”.

It was such a pleasure having the Baroncinis visit Under Canvas and we couldn’t stop ourselves from wanting to know more about their visit! So, we asked Pia a few questions about her stay to get an inside look at how she felt about stepping outside:
