Sustainable tourism in Italy
Italy, the world's 4th largest tourist destination, is beginning to suffer significantly from mass tourism, especially in the most popular areas. This is the case of Venice, for example. Overtourism is not only a question of loss of quality of life for the inhabitants. Other popular areas such as Lombardy, Tuscany and Campania are seeing some places fill up with sometimes unscrupulous travellers.
In this context, several initiatives are being launched to promote sustainable tourism in Italy. Venice has introduced an entrance fee to limit mass tourism and finance the maintenance of the city. A partnership with Airbnb has also been developed to encourage rural tourism in Italy.
In terms of transport, the rail network is well developed and linked to that of France. There are daily trains from Paris to Milan and Turin. This means you can easily travel to Italy by rail and limit the carbon footprint of your journey. In the Big Boot, the train even offers some unusual experiences, such as getting on a boat to cross the arm of the sea between Sicily and the mainland. This is a travel adventure to be experienced!
The must-sees of ecological tourism in Italy
Impressive monuments, pretty medieval villages, delicious cuisine, dreamy beaches and beautiful countryside: Tuscany has everything to please the visitor looking for an authentic Italian experience. Make an extended stop in Florence, a bastion of Renaissance architecture and art. Siena, a medieval city built on a hill, is also worth a visit. Beyond the big cities, several villages, such as Montepulciano, Pienza, Greve in Chianti, will give you the true measure of the Italian Dolce Vita. It is by criss-crossing the surroundings of these beautiful cities that Tuscany reveals its most beautiful features.

The little-known spots of the Grande Botte
Beyond Florence, Pisa and Siena, southern Tuscany is often overlooked by travelers. However, this region offers a myriad of beautiful discoveries. Fans of old stone will be seduced by the beautiful towns, such as Pitigliano, perched on the side of cliffs, or Sorano, with its lively streets. As for nature, the ancient volcanic region offers a lot of hiking and biking. Climb to the top of Mount Amiata, at an altitude of 1740 meters, and take the time to admire the coastal landscape that spreads out before your eyes. Perhaps you'll be tempted by a trip around Lake Bolsena, with its amazing black sand beaches? For your Tuscan nights, discover Agriturismo Biologico Sant'Egle, an accommodation in an old farmhouse that invites you to reconnect with nature.
The Marche region
Located in the center of the country, along the Adriatic Sea, the Marche region promises an authentic stay in an Italy far from the tourist areas. Sporty vacationers will head for the Furlo Gorges where hiking, mountain biking, kayaking or canyoning await them. Travelers looking for relaxation will enjoy the seaside resorts of the Adriatic coast: Fano, Pesaro or Senigallia. Finally, for an unusual activity, head to Acqualagna, the capital of the white truffle. Treat yourself to the company of a truffle farmer and go and find this precious mushroom in the forest! Finally, an exceptional region means exceptional accommodation: book your stay in the Marche region at La Forestale, an ecological hotel offering beautiful openings on the lush nature that surrounds it to recharge your batteries without compromise.
