Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Vacation in Umbria

Our Venice accommodation is a small family run hotel, in walking distance of the station. We walk EVERYWHERE in Venice, so as not to add to the pollution of the canals, wave damage and silting of the lagoon caused by increasing numbers of cruise ships and vaporetto boats. We encourage travelers to try a gondola ride - no fossil fuels consumed, no toxic emissions, supporting the age-old gondolier trade (apprenticeship can only be handed down from father to son) and putting our cash into local family's pockets.

In Gubbio we stay at another small family run establishment, where our travelers may choose to eat at a local restaurant that is a supporter of the Slow Food movement. Our Assisi accommodation consists of another family run guesthouse... then we head to Spello to a small wine cellar to taste wine and oil and local gastronomic delights, a delicious way to support local producers.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Wine tasting in Spello.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


You will benefit from not following the crowds thru Rome, Venice and in between. Some of the best shops, people and sights were along the narrower, less popular streets.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


I know it did. We stumbled on a very local benefit cook-out for a church restoration in Venice. We enjoyed dinner there which also included a live band, and felt good that proceeds were going to a good cause.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Great. It was well organized but still flexible.
