Departure information

This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Accessible tourism overview:
I'm a person with limited mobility (I have used a crutch for 24 years due to rheumatoid arthritis) and I know how difficult is to understand mobility problems if you haven't ever experience any. This tour has therefore been specifically designed for guests using a wheelchair or who have limited mobility. All the locations visited, and the hotels and restaurants have been chosen for their accessibility and can be tailor made to your requirements so you can get on with enjoying your vacation
Limited mobility:
Our trips are tailor made meaning we can cater for you and your exact requirements and how limited your mobility is – while some people may be able to climb stairs, others might not and we are on hand to book you the most suitable accommodations and transport as well as advise on the best sights/attractions and restaurants.
This tour has been thought to be friendly and accessible to those who use a wheelchair. The hotels we offer on this tour all have accessible rooms available and the transport we book has the possibility of carrying one or more wheelchairs depending on the number of clients. The museums and restaurants we suggest all have wheelchair friendly access.
'Free from' food:
In Umbria restaurants, bars and pizzeria’s are very sensitive to food requirements and you find almost everywhere menus for people with celiac disease, as well as for vegetarians and vegans. I'm vegetarian and have no problems, Italy has plenty of fresh vegetables, beans, pizza and pasta.
We warmly welcome everyone and have guests from all backgrounds, genders etc.

Responsible tourism

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

We identified our suppliers among the ones that have a concern for the environment, for example, with restaurants, we choose those that use local and/or organic products as much as possible, the so called “kilometer zero” (produced by local farms in the territory); those that care about recycling and are committed to reducing waste; that support the preservation of our landscape, with typical olive groves and vineyards.

The wines that are produced and served in restaurants are mostly DOC, DOCG and IGP that are linked to the territory, require specific planting densities, training systems and pruning systems that are traditional, land and plants are not over exploited, so that the environmental and cultivation conditions of the vineyards are those traditional for the area and capable of conveying the specific quality characteristics to the grapes and wines. The cellar chosen for the wine tasting is a small one, owned by the same family from 1896.

Furthemore, we support a local NGO that is working on EPGs, to create a direct link from local typical producers to citizens to sustain small local producers especially those in hills and mountainous areas amd those committed to organic production. We support the organization of tours to discover their productions and make citizen aware of the importance of maintaining local and traditional productions (no GMO), even if less productive than modern ones.

The Impacts of this Trip

We, where possible, choose local owned hotels and services, we give information on typical restaurants and souvenir shops.

We also work with local guides who know their territory inside out and are committed to promoting the historic, artistic and cultural heritage of the territory and making people aware about Umbria cultural heritage.

We give to our clients a list of farmers’ markets: true open air food shops from the producer to the consumer, vegetables organically grown and “zero kilometers” far. Buying and tasting their products is a way to support small local producers that otherwise risk to disappear. Farmers’ markets in Umbria are part of a project called “ Campagna Amica” that identifies and safeguards Italian and certified farmers’ products. In these markets you can find women producing buffalo mozzarella and cheeses, farmers with fresh fruit and vegetables (there is also a cooperative that sells products grown in a jail by prisoners), producing and selling typical flours and beans and so on.

We support all of them buying their products and organizing, when possible, tasting of their products. Furthermore, we sustain a local NGO working on accessible tourism, and we helped them in developing several touristic cards, in Italian and English, with detailed architectural information on churches, museums, restaurants and hotels to make people able to decide by themselves if they are accessible for them.
