Seminar on Umbria's walking tourism offer
The first seminar dedicated to the tourism offer of the walking trails in Umbria and the thematic itineraries linked to slow tourism will be held on online on Thursday 12th November at 5:00 p.m.
The recent rediscovery and popularity of the Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago has rekindled interest in itineraries to be covered on foot and/or by bicycle. Italy has taken the opportunity to launch new proposals, rediscover the ancient routes and invest in the development of sustainable tourism.
This seminar is dedicated to the main Walks of Umbria. Created at the request of the Association of Tourist Guides of Umbria, it is open to all guides of Umbria, and will be an opportunity to outline the elements that characterize the routes and illustrate the regional network; to outline the pluses of the most popular itineraries; and to draw the salient features that distinguish the identikit of the walking tourist-pilgrim. The characterization of the pilgrim, as a specific tourism target, is indispensable to plan new visit offers and unusual ways of discovering regional slow tourism.
Sviluppumbria, in collaboration with the Umbria Region, local administrations, businesses and civil and religious associations (first and foremost the C.E.U. and Franciscan families), has contributed to the development of some of the most famous routes in Italy, helping to ensure Umbria’s international popularity and reputation. The Green Heart of Italy is today recognised by pilgrims and the press as the slow destination and crossroads of the most popular routes in Europe.
New trends in the tourism sector are naturally combined with the morphological peculiarities of Umbria, making it an ideal place to experience open spaces and open-air activities. With this in mind and with a view to the future, Sviluppumbria offers the sector a tourism product destined to enrich the regional incoming offer.
The seminar will be held on a zoom platform, subject to registration; click to register.
