Who we are

Home / Farfalle in cammino / Who we are

Travelling often means visiting a place which inspires desires, emotions and curiosity, but when you arrive you’ll understand that the real experience is not the destination, but the journey itself. For us responsible travel means to meet people and their stories, to exchange opinions and impressions, to stay still listening to the rhythm of things happening around us.
