The Italian Touring Club has launched a “Summer in the Borghi” (small historic towns) campaign, full of suggestions for a holiday with a difference. With most Italians opting to vacation in their own country this year, due to the problems posed by the pandemic, the 247 borghi certified with the Bandiera Arancione (Orange Flag) that guarantees high standards of hospitality, friendliness, local food and unspoiled scenery, are gearing up to welcome un unprecedented number of visitors. The Touring Club website is also a great source of new destination information for foreign visitors.
Most of the borghi offer entertainment programmes, nature tours, cycling and trekking tracks and guided visits for small groups to local places of interest. All information can be had on the website: benvenuto.bandierearancioni.it
The Touring Club (TCI) is a non-profit association, founded 120 years ago, and dedicated to tourism, culture and the environment.
