Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Greece and Puglia holiday

Environment

This tour of two weeks is designed as a main vacation for those travellers who are coming from outside Europe in order to mitigate the plane travel impact from their home; furthermore we suggest to plan, before or after, some more days in order to reach a minimum stay of three weeks: a twenty day journey permits also to stress less your body and is reasonable by flying more than 2000 miles (3000 km).

We choose smaller accommodations to have a smaller environmental impact than larger hotels. For instance, in Nafplion your accommodation is a pretty pension with only 7 rooms; the hotel in Puglia in the countryside is run by a family, who also farm their surrounding fields.

Regarding the ancient site of Egnazia in Puglia, we have the pleasant news that students are further excavating and it proves, how the local society has interest in investing in the historical research. By visiting this well preserved site and museum, we show our curiosity and attention to such a fragile places. Similar is the case of Mycenae in Greece.

Even if every day you will enjoy new places, the driven distances are reduced to the essential, making possible a variety of landscapes and experiences by a low hydrocarbon impact.

All meals are based on delicious seasonal local food in order to minimize the consumed transport energy and preserve traditional farm and biodiversity.

In our office: We started from our working place by lowering resources consumption, in fact we just use materials with longer life (glass, wood, durable plastic); we reduce as much as possible wastes, trying to avoid brands accused of planned obsolescence; of course we use the corresponding differentiated collection.

Community

As a young tour operator, we are passionate and enthusiastic about our countries, organizing journeys that benefit both local communities as well as our guests. During this travel you will discover Greece and Apulia (Puglia, South Italy) through their traditions and cultures: Our main purpose is to propagate a sustainable Tourism, as a possibility of social improvement, exchange and economy improvement.

We cooperate with a Greek tour operator to be sure of involving local communities also in Greece for pleasant interactions between guests and local people as a path for intellectual enrichment in both directions.

We also encourage new perspectives to the natural and artistic heritage of Greece and South Italy, as a new way of enjoying unknown places, monuments and sites.

During last decades the tourist flow in Greece and Italy increased and today it is difficult for travelers, especially for foreigners, to discern touristy places from shops and restaurants favorite by locals, as we do. Moreover, by escaping mass tourism places, we contribute to avoid the visitors concentration that represent actually a serious problem in some part of Italy.

The majority of accommodation we use on this trip is locally owned and in general we only collaborate with local companies and local guides to guarantee a sustainable further use of tourist incomes.
