Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Amalfi to Sorrento walking holiday in Italy

UK Office:
We are well aware of the impact tourism has at home and abroad, and we make every effort to balance the environmental impact of travelling with the immense benefits sustainable tourism can bring to destinations and the people who live there. So we start in the office: we turn off all electrical equipment every night; we use energy-efficient bulbs; we measure print and paper consumption, and re-cycle wherever possible; we print our brochures on paper from sustainable sources, and send them out in bio-degradable packaging.

Leaders & local suppliers:
Two nights of this hotel-to-hotel independent walking holiday are spent at the Hotel La Conca del Sogno in the private cove of Recommone, just around the corner from Marina del Cantoneís bustling bay. Managed by the Tizzani family for over 40 years, this 7-room retreat started life as a quarry! Towards the end of the 1950ís, the viability of the quarry ceased, so Pietro Tizzani and his wife, Giuseppina, decided to take advantage of the immense natural beauty of their land and created a small, family restaurant serving fresh fish specialities under their panoramic pergola. Enjoy your two nights dining here!

Staff:
Our local agents suggest places to see and visit locally.

Group size:
Having no minimum number means that groups sizes can be small and therefore the trips have less impact on the environment.

Activity:
Walking has minimal impact on the environment as you provide most of the energy yourself and, when youíre strolling from village to village, you can enjoy a relationship with locals in a way motorists passing through never can. On foot, you get off the beaten track, and youíll find that people treat you as a visitor rather than a tourist. Also, by walking independently, and not having to worry about keeping up with a group, you set the pace so you can soak up the sights, sounds and scents of your surrounds and really get under the skin of the place youíre visiting.

We proactively encourage walking clients to think about travelling responsibly too: packing light, saving water, buying locally and re-cycling all maps and route notes at the end of their trip.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The views and location by far - and with only a few exceptions the friendliness of the people and their willingness to speak English without any hint of frustration by your lack of Italian.

The Hotel Capodimonte in Sorrento deserves a special mention for its first class service across the board but particularly for its restaurant.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Do not hesitate if you have the footwear for demanding terrain.
The walking guide is detailed and comprehensive - it is wise to read and ensure you understand every word used for it means exactly what it says.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


They must surely have benefited financially.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Outstanding organisation, including administration, transport and walking guide.
An excellent mix of hotels, with the 3 star Albertina in Positano outshining the 4* in Marina De Cantone.
