Step forward of the quality of water of seas, but also rivers and lakes in Italy. The European report on quality of bathing water, presented today by EU Environment Commissioner Janez Potocnik says: “In Italy 91.9% of the marine waters gratified in 2011 established mandatory standards from European increase of 6.6% over the previous year. Not only. Coastal waters of “excellent quality are passed in a year from 77.2% to 83%.”

Experience is to feel Eco Country Resort in UMBRIA

Ask a small child what the word ‘experience’ means and probably the reply will be, ‘to feel something’. Like all truths, this one too is very simple. To experience is to feel. And we feel when we are involved. When we are no longer onlookers, but deeply immersed into all that is going on around us. Isn’t that also a good description of travel at its best? When you can connect with nature, community and ecology, when you become a participant rather than a passer-by, authentic experiences are born. Activities at La Casella are an invigorating blend of simple pleasures and extraordinary experiences. At our Eco country Resort you will experience Nature as never before.

Responsible tourism and a dip into history, the Greeks and Romans

We have said and we repeat that, Italy is a country where you can bring out the passion for tourism: city, history, mountains, archeology, nature, sea, etc. … The WWF Nature always organizes responsible tourism and travel in the nature, today we talk about seawatching in Ventotene.

Ventotene

Ventotene

This kind of holiday is an unforgettable experience around the island, games and activities to learn about the island. Ventotene is located off the Gulf of Gaeta, in the heart of the Tyrrhenian Sea, and ‘the most’ small inhabited island of the Pontine archipelago. And Marine Protected Area and State Natural Reserve and recently declared a world heritage by UNESCO. The island is full of old memories: through the historical center, built in the Bourbon period and remained almost unchanged, leads a rich archaeological trail. The sea bed by divers are considered the most ‘beautiful in the Mediterranean. The natural scenario, with its rugged coastline and clear waters,offers a perfect setting for sailing.

Pandoteira once known by the Greeks, the island later became a Roman colony where they were confined for various reasons, members of the imperial family. Famous exile was the only daughter of Augustus, Julia (39a.c.-14d.c.) in the large luxurious complex, called precisely “Villa Giulia” in the island called “Punta Eolo”. A few ruins remain of this villa which can be visited. One of the columns is now the town square as a monument to the fallen, others are exposed to the Historical Museum of Archaeology of the island.

Not only this but by choosing the homestay option students benefit from one-to-one attention, learning in the home of a native speaker. Why not learn to speak Italian fluently at one of wonderful homestays in Italy.
