Be Green: from Volcei to Valdiano

Be green from volcei to valdiano

Jump in a rural southern experience, feel the ancient vibes of this secret land that tell a fascinating story at every corner, another visual concept from a unique land, a different point of view on italy, and it’s plastic free!

"I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want" (Andy Wharol)

Respecting our land is a must do for us, which doesn’t mean reducing the tourist experience, just make it be ethic and sustainable.
This tour, like most of ours and soon all of them, aims to be eco friendly, plastic free and environment respectful.
We will eat local, nearby grown or produced, food which means less emissions, won’t have single use plastic plates, glasses or cutlery, no meat from intensive farming, delicious wines from local wineries.
And we hope to drive on electric vans in the nearest future.
