Would you like to understand our way of thinking?
We do not merely believe in a new way of travelling, but in a completely new philosophy that rethinks the concepts of “enjoyment” and “relaxation”, which have been tied to consumerism for too many years.
Tourist circuits bombards its visitors with impossible timetables, huge crowds, and exorbitant amounts of historical monuments so tourists have no opportunity to enjoy themselves. This type of tourism, which only aims to cross destinations off on a map, is stressful and far from enriching, resulting in vacations that are races to consume the maximum possible number of places.
At Slow Food, Art & Travel, we do not believe in queues, alarm clocks, or hassle.
The Slow Movement…
…sets itself apart from mass tourism to offer us adventures and experiences that are authentic and true to the culture we are visiting. We understand that the only way to get to know a place is through its customs, traditions, and people. And, naturally, we should do this at our own pace. The traditional tourist circuit is often too simplistic, missing the cultural complexity and variety of a country and the particular quirks of each geographical corner. For this reason, we choose areas and localities that are normally ignored by mass tourism, but are more typical of the local culture than overcrowded spots. We look for allure and authenticity in the settings where we carry out all of our workshops. In harmony with our ecological principles, we bring together all of our programs in natural locations, so that you can enjoy the riches of the region without your experience being restricted to urban areas.
For this reason, we look to connect visitors with local and regional food, educating them on the cultivation and production methods of each area. We support fair food and local business, ensuring the quality of all ingredients used in dishes. We make sure food is enjoyed in its own environment.
