Description of Family holiday near Venice

This six-day tour of northern Italy makes a fab short break for families. Moving at a relaxed pace, and staying in a gorgeous, family-friendly agriturismo in the Treviso countryside where you’ll be immersed in daily farm life, you’ll enjoy a raft of fun activities and tours in a beautiful region.

Take a relaxed stroll through the pretty Prosecco Hills, seeking out an ancient watermill in the fairytale forest. Mum and Dad can enjoy a glass or two of bubbly, and no doubt a fresh juice can be rustled up for the kids. On the farm you might take a family cookery lesson together, learning how to prepare some Italian favourites, or even discover the secrets of making ice cream! You might take a horse-riding lesson, or simply pitch in with the farm work.

You’ll visit an archaeological site on the lake shore, where kids can take part in workshops where they’ll learn to make a hut or a bow, and pick up all manner of fascinating information about the people who lived here centuries ago.

And in Treviso itself, a city of canals and heart-meltingly beautiful architecture, you might take a trip on the canals, and explore hidden corners with your knowledgeable guide. By the way – this is the birthplace of tiramisu, so be sure to save room among all your tastings for a slice of this classic Italian dessert.

You’re bound to emerge from this Italian getaway with many happy memories, and plenty of recipes to try back home as well.

Departure information

This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Our aim is to make our Travel Experiences sustainable for the long term: we know that tourism can have both an exceptionally positive and potentially negative impact on local communities. For this reason, we promote responsible travel that means: to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment.

We start from the beginning, helping our travellers to choose their customized daily experiences based on these sustainable categories:
- Green
- Hand-made
- Eat local
- Live local
- Sport
- Adrenaline

For this one trip we minimised carbon emissions making the following considerations:

- LOCAL SERVICES - We choose local suppliers, which had adopted sustainable practices like the young owner of a vineyard that, after years abroad, had chosen to come back to Veneto and continue the family business producing the highest quality of organic prosecco, the Cartizze. Or like the owners of the farm where all the family will experience several activities immersed in the countryside environment: all the workshops are focused on the respect for the environment, on the importance to eat organic and fresh vegetables and fruits with no food waste, the deep bond between men and animals

- WATER CONSERVATION - We support initiatives that encourage conservative use of water (like refilling water bottles or turning off water when brushing teeth), so we kindly ask to our travellers to read the Responsible Travel Conduct that we will send before departing for Veneto

- LOCAL FOOD AND GOODS - We include and strongly inspire our travellers to eat locally produced food and goods (like organic food, natural local products which come straight from the garden to the kitchen), like during the farming experience

- WATER BOTTLES - We encourage our travellers to refill a water bottle from water 'bubblers' where available to avoid unnecessary purchasing of bottled water and the subsequent waste disposal issues

- RECYCLING – Our Local guides also provide travellers with awareness on how they can reduce and recycle in Veneto

- PUBLIC AND ECOLOGICAL TRANSPORT – Since we have a high range of biking tours in our offered experiences, we strongly encourage our travellers to choose ecological and public transportation, like bicycle during their free time

The Impacts of this Trip

This Travel Experience is planned to ensure that we support local communities by:

- SMALLER-SCALE LOCALLY-OWNED ACCOMMODATION – Choosing local B&B or agritourism, like the one of this trip. We wanted for the family travellers something different, distant from the chaos of the city and we found it: set in the rolling hills of the Treviso countryside, is the perfect place for all the family to enjoy the natural environment. Thus, we usually choose all our accommodation that provide sustainable practices like recycling or changing towels on request

- LOCAL GUIDES - Hiring local guides for how they tell their territory. In this way we could learn about the culture and way of life directly from those who live it and put money into local hands and economies

- FARE WORKING CONDITIONS - Defining a tariff policy that calls for a clear decision-making freedom of the price by its suppliers, stakeholders, partners and local guides

- TAILOR MADE TOURS - Organizing tailor made tour for the limit size of 8-10 people because we believe that larger group could not join the real experience and could otherwise impact on the local communities

- CROSS-CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING - Offering real life experiences which promote cross-cultural understanding, like the wandering in the Prosecco Area where travellers could visit all the small family-owned wineries, realising what is behind each bottle of prosecco wine and appreciating that hard work. Or during all the farming activities marked out by nature and animals rhythms. Nothing pays you back more than picking up fruits you saw ripen in the sun or look after new-born puppies. Everything always reward the effort you made, whether you already have experience in doing it or not

- LOCAL SUPPLIERS - Recommending local eateries and stores to our travellers to engage locally-owned and operated services to support local people (like artisans, wine producers, rowers, organic farmers and so more). We chose them one by one, shaking their hands, learning their stories and feeling the passion they put in their own activities. During all the wanderings, all the family will taste traditional food directly from who produce it (bakeries, olive oil, fresh appetizers and so more)

- RESIZING SEASONALITY – This Travel Experience emphasize the interesting aspects (events, traditions and natural views) of Veneto in low season as well. Prosecco hills and, more in general Treviso countryside, have a temperate climate all year long. For this reason we suggest our travellers to visit it even in winter time

- ARTISAN AND IMMATERIAL HERITAGE – Helping to keep alive traditions and supporting ancient knowledge, like the small family-owned wineries or the volunteering work to restore the water mill near Valdobbiadene

- SLOW TOURISM - Promoting slow tourism as an alternative to everything-at-once, which allow traveller the “luxury” of look, taste and feel its final destination. For this reason, we kindly ask to our travellers to read the Responsible Travel Conduct what we will send before departing for Veneto

- UNIQUE AND ORIGINAL DAILY EXPERIENCES - Promoting a different way to explore the territory, like in Veneto where, from an historic point of view, the bond between man and the soil, it has always been strong. Exploring prosecco area for us does not mean just to drink a glass of wine but to dig in the traditions of the territory. Or during the archaeological park experience, where kids could learn the history of this territory while doing funny and educational workshop on the lake shore

- RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL CODE OF CONDUCT – Each traveller will receive our Responsible Travel Code of Conduct before arriving in Veneto. In addition, our local guide will explain during each daily experience the right travel code and will answer to whichever question concerning it
