As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOn this tour you are going to visit the land between Venice and the Dolomites, a landscape of round hills covered with vineyards producing the Prosecco wine. Most of the production is made by small businesses, family generations have been working to improve the quality of the wine in an area where vine growing dates back to the Roman period. You will realize how man’s work and the environment are strictly connected and in this area one cannot survive without the other. The movements of the Earth’s crust and the geological structure of the area have produced over thousand of years a series of parallel hills which have been molded by human activity. The Prosecco area has been listed among the Unesco World Heritage Sites. The words used to apply for the Unesco candidacy express in the best way the link between the environment and the community:“.. the Prosecco area has been generated by a continuous process that has evolved over time, but which is still very much alive, around which the local community and its artistic, technical and production culture have organised themselves in response to characteristics of the physical environment that are fragile and entirely distinctive”.
The rural buildings and the construction materials are so intimately connected with the environment and with the local history that they are a unified entity with the surrounding landscape. The level of preservation of the agricultural environment is excellent in this area and it allows the developing and conservation of local productions which can be found and tasted at local restaurants
PeopleThe inhabitants of the area that you are going to visit love their roots and they have kept strong bonds with their traditions and with their gastronomic culture; they take pleasure in offering their hospitality especially at the table while enjoying a glass of Prosecco. You will travel in an area which does not know mass tourism and you will get acquainted with local people who will introduce you to their traditions. Your visits will have a positive impact on the local economy and on their effort to maintain their ancient culture and you will have the opportunity to buy products directly from the producers.
Even in Venice which is definitely a mass tourism destination, we have designed for you an itinerary with a local guide to give you the opportunity to get to know the city as it is lived by the Venetian citizens. If you decide to buy the products of the artisans' shops you will contribute to the local economy and sustain the survival of ancient works. There are various visiting options that we can offer according to differents interests.
