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


The trip planning and lead up was amazing. Working with Giovanna from the tour operator was hands down the best part of the holiday. When it came to the actual trip... Everything! Rome food tour, the Vatican tour, Capri & Anacapri, the Blue Grotto & Venice. Thank you!!!

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


Choose your hotels wisely. Location, proximity to public transport as well as sights and food is very important.

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


No, I did not. In my opinion, all tourism supports local people in a small way. But in general, our holiday was a 100% personal gratification.

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


Five Stars - 110%

Hi Paula,

thank you for taking the time to share your holiday experience. We have been planning together this holiday for some time, choosing the hotels, the experiences, etc and I am really glad you had a good time. I can assure you that local people benefited from your holiday: Fabiola, Luigi and ...me, I am a local too! It gets a bit more complicated about the environmental and preservation issues when we are talking about places like Venice, Rome and Capri that have to deal with overtourism.
It was fun organizing together your holiday and I hope to welcome you to Lake Como area next time you come to visit us. A big hug to you and Gary and thank you!
Giovanna

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

The survival of some of the places that you are going to visit on this tour is strictly linked to the preservation of the environment: access to Le Cinque Terre is quite restricted for cars and coaches, the five villages are accessible mainly by train or boat which we will use to travel there. We are in a very fragile geological area of rare beauty and the local administrators pursue a far-sighted policy about the preservation of this territory. It is rare to see local regulators favouring the survival of the environment instead of immediate profit from thousands of tourists visiting this beautiful corner of Italy every year, so we are proud to work with such a forward thinking organisation.

At the marble quarries in Carrara, you will explore the place where for the last 2000 years man has worked daily with this wonderful natural landform. We aim to educate our guests on the dispute between those who claim that the caves are destroying the beautiful Alpi Apuane and excavations should be reduced, if not altogether stopped, and those who strenuously support the present situation. Our aim is to create awareness by giving you the opportunity to learn the facts and form your own opinion.

The “dying town” of Civita di Bagnoregio is a unique place where the preservation of the environment means the survival of the town itself. On this tour, we are able to offer a choice of hotels which are historical buildings turned into hospitality venues to preserve them and to pass their cultural heritage on to future generations.

People

You will have the opportunity to get in touch with craftsmen and local producers, helping them to survive in a globalized world: meet a leather craftsman in Turin who will benefit from an extra income besides the profit from selling his products; get to know local wines from passionate wine producers in the Langhe; discover the quarries, the techniques and the history as well as the quarrymen's villages, their thousand-year habits and customs, their language their food and everyday life and learn that the world of marble is not just the excavation or processing of a stone, but the history of a territory and its population that have been synonyms of marble itself for ages. In some places you will also be able to buy local products during visits.

We are a small Italian tour operator and we tend to establish partnerships with businesses similar to ours, usually small local companies; some of them usually work with Italian tourists and rarely with foreigners, your visit would be a special event for them and you can count on a friendly attitude even if they may not speak flawless English.
