We welcome you to the Ecologicol Tours blog

We hope that this multimedia experience will be enjoyable and enriching for you. This blog was created with the aim of sharing as much as possible of the beauty of travel, the world and peoples.

Ecologico Tour is an agency that differs from others in the type of trips it offers: our tours are routes through nature and history, to be experienced on foot or by bicycle.

Our idea is to go back to our origins and savour the beauty that surrounds us by touching it with our hands, breathing in the scents of the earth, tasting the flavours of the world and admiring the beauty that peoples have left us as gifts.

On this page, you will find articles about the trips we offer, insights and curiosities about Umbria and the world.

I advise you to take a moment and read our short articles so that you can discover new and beautiful things, to get inspiration for your next trip.

“There is no man more complete than he who has travelled, who has changed twenty times the shape of his thought and his life” Alphonse de Lamartine

“People do not make journeys; it is journeys that make people” John Steinbeck

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart” Confucius

“Funny thing about travel, once you start it’s hard to stop. It’s like being an alcoholic” Gore Vidal
