(ex international flights)


8 days

The concept of the “Borgo Villaggio” is when the town makes itself available to the traveller to spend a whole week with its inhabitants. Enjoy meeting locals in a truly authentic way, enjoying local cuisine and nature whilst also discovering art, history and culture. You'll be immersed in village life in a sustainable way: this is slow travel at its best. This tour is particularly suitable for families and groups of friends, but of course equally adaptable for couples as well. It has been designed to run Saturday to Saturday.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
