Nowadays, life just goes too fast. How often have you found yourself wondering “how is it Thursday already?” We are sure you would not want to feel the same way or for this stress to find its way into your holidays. Rushing from one place to the next without enjoying the relaxation that should come with a long holiday abroad is probably the worst thing that can happen! This is why we would like to talk today about Slow Tourism in Italy.
In the last few years many people have been renting cottages in Italy and enjoying what the local regions can offer: local food, sustainable activities, exploration of the surrounding areas… all with the idea in mind of using what is local and green, and enjoying the small things in life that can at times bring the most pleasure.
From this trend the Slow Tourism phenomenon was born. Slow tourism focuses, amongst other goals, on naturalistic and environmental elements, on improving accessibility while respecting the environment and avoiding excessive pollution, on visiting and promoting rural areas and eco-tourism projects. It is for this reason that Italian villa holidays have become popular with followers of this Slow Tourism movement.
The Naples region has many beautiful small towns and villages that frequently embrace tourists and visitors who stay not only on Amalfi coast villas but also on other properties throughout the region. While staying in this region, we recommend visiting the rests of the Roman settlements that were famously covered by the Vesuvius as well as the charming coastal towns where you can enjoy fish caught that day as well as other local delicacies produced in the region. Remember to visit the famous cave sights that will take your breath away – we recommend Grotta dello Smeraldo in Conca dei Marini, just four kilometres from Amalfi!

Google Street View has captured roadside sex on the Dukes Highway, South Australia.
It’s a well timed stunt of the couple faking sex on the bonnet of a BMW as the guy is drinking a Corona. Unfortunately Google Street View has since censored the image.
