An unnamed Italian man hiked for a week in an attempt to calm himself down after arguing with his wife.

The 48-year-old left Como, in the north of Italy, and traveled 280 miles south over a period of a week.

He walked about 40 miles a day in an attempt to soothe his anger, according to the Independent.

Eventually, the man reached Fano – a beach resort on the Adriatic coast.

Across Italy, current lockdown regulations mean that a nationwide curfew is in place between 10 pm and 5 am.
