Responsible tourism: Italy cultural vacation, Marche region
The coastline of the Marche, and Senigallia in particular, is known for its golden sand beaches and the clear blue waters of the Adriatic. Keeping the seafront and cities pristine is truly a must in this well-preserved part of Italy, and we strive to do our part by crafting itineraries that don't add to the pollution or overpopulation of the area. Our group tours are purposefully small and scheduled in the off-season to avoid overcrowding, and we carpool to all destinations outside of Senigallia to decrease traffic congestion and our carbon output. Once you have arrived at our destination, we organize tours on foot to diminish our impact on local villages and the historical sights that we visit. When relaxing at the seaside, bath houses will help you properly dispose of your rubbish and recycling, keeping the beaches and water clean on this beautiful stretch of coastline. Even your inn has been carefully selected for its dedication to sustainable practices, making your stay here truly environmentally friendly!
We believe the most memorable vacations are those where you feel more like a local than a tourist. Keeping that in mind, we customized this special tour with input from the best minds around: locals themselves. Following their recommendations and collaborating with native guides, we've come up with an itinerary that takes you to some of the Marche's loveliest villages and cities, places rich in history, art, monuments and traditions. For example, Pesaro, renowned for its artisan pottery since the 14th century, Gubbio, one of the world's best preserved medieval villages, and enchanting Urbino, a Unesco World Heritage Site. Less touristy than other major Italian destinations like the Cinque Terre, Florence, Rome and Venice, these places, along with the lovely beachside resort of Senigallia, will benefit doubly from your visit as your money spent here helps ensure their preservation as well as jobs held by local inhabitants. Its truly a win-win!
