Puglia holiday in Italy
Description of Puglia holiday in Italy
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetApulia (Puglia) with its long coastline, whitewashed towns and villages and strong regional culture draws visitors from across Italy and the world. It is our responsibility to limit our impact on the environment for the community that call Apulia their home and our future guests that want a genuine experience of the region. We have a strong responsible travel policy across all our tours and here are some of the things we are doing to help make our impact on Puglia a positive one.
Most of our meals are taken at local restaurants, cafes and hotel breakfasts. This reduces our packaging significantly and helps support small and medium-size businesses
You will receive a free reusable water bottle on the first day of your tour and there will be lots of opportunities to refill en-route.
Our philosophy of slow travel and exposing visitors to artisan Italy means we use small, local and micro businesses where ever possible to supply services like accommodation, transport and sightseeing such as visits to artisan workshops, farms and small wineries. In fact, it adds to the experience on our tours and is an important part of small business income and we feel also helps keep traditions alive and thriving.
PeopleLocal Crafts & Culture
Making quality products by hand is very important in Italian culture. From pasta to shoes to supercars we take immense pride in Italian Design and Craftmanship. As Italians, we have met some incredible artisans across the country over the years and are proud to call them our friends. On this trip you visit a local pasta factory as well as artisans making tradition meats, wine and bread.
Friends and Neighbours
Our cruise of the Adriatic is with local fishermen who many can trace their family history back to past generations doing the same job. The fishing industry in Pulgia, like the world over, is under pressure from large-scale fishing industry and the economic benefits of diversifying into taking guests along the coast has made a positive impact on the local economy.
A Fair Deal
All of our suppliers, partners and friends that provide goods and services to your travel experience have sound commercial agreements in place. We work together closely to ensure that there is no compromise to quality by squeezing margins as some larger corporations can operate.
