A holiday at slow pace, to discover corners of paradise that seem suspended in time, to be lived intensely, in close contact with the wild nature able to give strong emotions. An ideal destination for sports lovers and eager “slow travelers” for adventures. Also a journey in historical and rural places, in search of the most authentic roots. Whether aboard a canoe on the crystalline waters of the Tirino river or riding an e-bike through the lush valleys, these are not only places to be visited but above all stories to tell. Like the mysterious anecdotes echoing within the walls of the village of Castel del Monte, the ancient popular beliefs regarding witches and the evocative rites to exorcise them. Or the superstitions of Rocca Calascio with its Norman castle full of history and magic, beeing often a natural set for Hollywood films. For sure, this experience promises a change of perspective in the way of traveling, placing the tourist in close contact with the people’s authenticity, the incomparable beauty of the landscape and the charm of local traditions that amaze even the most demanding traveler.
