We are finally happy to say that, despite the health emergency, we will be able to return soon to visit neighboring and distant countries !!
Recently, both the Italian national tourism agency and Dario Franceschini, minister for cultural heritage and tourism, have confirmed this prospect. The possibility of spending sustainable holidays in Mugello will therefore remain intact.
In many cultures, the crisis is also an opportunity. This difficult situation could help us to favour and encourage a new form of tourism. A conscious tourism, less impacting from the ecological point of view and that overcomes the distortions of mass tourism. All operators will have to commit more than before to give a new design push to the tourism sector. In this way we will be able to start even more energetically, without forgetting the need to make it safe and sustainable.
Tourism is sustainable when it takes into consideration the environmental and socio-economic impact of presences in a given territory. From now on, making it such is and will be a necessity to meet the needs of customers, the environment and host communities.
And it is precisely a sustainable and slow tourism what Mugello & Tuscany have always wanted to offer through its authentic experiences.
