School trip

Itinerary
Education is the fundamental pillar for building a slightly better world.
For this reason, we have also decided to organize educational trips by bicycle, designed for secondary schools coming from all over Italy and Europe.The internal movements are mainly on foot or by bike, through natural parks and small villages, on secondary roads with little traffic. Every day there is no shortage of playful and mostly educational activities (visits to museums, workshops on biodiversity).

The proposal can be modulated according to the time and training needs of the various schools, notwithstanding the educational purpose with particular attention to sustainability.
