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.
PlanetThe magnificent landscapes of Veneto are among the most beautiful places in Europe and therefore deserve to be preserved. One key problem is littering,?which?our leaders address on the ground by actively educating our suppliers and locals too. Always leading by example, for instance, gathering rubbish others have left behind.?Additionally, we are minimising our impact on the natural environment by traveling in a group of 12 or less. This has much less impact when exploring rural areas, reducing our environmental and social effects.
You will spend all three nights in the same comfortable hotel in Treviso. This not only saves time and effort in packing, but also eliminates the need for transportation from one hotel to another and hence reduces this trip’s carbon emissions. Furthermore, it contributes to lower water consumption, as bedsheets are used for 3 nights rather than just one night. Those who want to conserve additional resources are encouraged to renounce room cleaning during their stay.
PeopleEven in the fifth most visited country in the world, it is possible to get off the beaten trek. That is why we chose Treviso over Venice or Rome. Treviso is a beautiful canalled city that lies north of its more famous watery neighbour. It offers a sense of real Veneto life, and our stay supports our family-owned hotel and local businesses in this underrated city. You’ll be based in the historic city center of Treviso for the next four days, so unpack, settle in.
Get a true taste of Veneto as you explore the terraced vineyards and rolling hills of the home of Prosecco, supporting local wineries and sampling on some of the world’s best bubbly. You’ll help support wineries at a time when wine exports have taken a significant hit. You'll visit two vineyards along the so-called ‘Strada del Vino di Prosecco’, where you can learn more about the vineyards, the Glera grape and, of course, taste Proseccos from Brut to Dry – with a light lunch of meats and cheese alongside, all locally produced.
Join your leader for a Venetian walk down the hidden calli and across the ponti that takes full advantage of your host’s insider local knowledge of the secret spots. Discover the true food and wine traditions of the city with a tasting of cicchetti (Venetian tapas) and a glass of house wine at a typical Venetian osteria (local tavern) that’s 100 per cent local owned. It’s the perfect way to find the spirit of the city and support true locally owned business at the same time.
