What's special?

The Medieval parade

Here you can expect a truly unconventional experience, filled with excitement, cultural immersion, and the joyous celebration of this vibrant tradition coming direclty from the Middle Age time. This parade is a vibrant and thrilling festival held in Città della Pieve, a charming Slow City located in the province of Perugia, Italy. This historic event dates back to the 17th century and celebrates the three ancient neighborhoods, known as “Terzieri,” that make up the town: Borgo Dentro, Casalino, and Castello. Leading up to the race, there are parades, flag-waving ceremonies, and historical reenactments that showcase the rich cultural heritage of Città della Pieve. The entire town participates in the festivities, with locals dressed in medieval attire, musicians playing traditional instruments, and artisans showcasing their crafts. Be prepared to attend to something absolutely non-mainstream!

 

A lovely immersion in the Val d’Orcia, Tuscany

A day trip to Val d’Orcia that offers a breathtaking experience of rolling hills, charming villages, and picturesque landscapes. We will visit:

  • Pienza, known for its Renaissance architecture and delicious pecorino cheese. Take a stroll through the narrow streets, visit the Pienza Cathedral, and enjoy panoramic views from the town walls.
  • Montalcino, famous for its Brunello di Montalcino wine. Explore the ancient fortress, sample local wines at the wineries, and indulge in Tuscan cuisine at the quaint trattorias.
  • Bagno Vignoni, this unique village is known for its thermal baths and the charming central square that is actually a large thermal pool. Relax and take in the picturesque surroundings.

By implementing “interviews” as a part of the travel process, Andiámonos wants to offer a more personalized and successful experience for both travelers and coordinators.

In fact, this brief video call can provide:

  • Trust and Safety: as it can help verify the identity of the travelers, ensuring they are who they claim to be. It can enhance trust and safety for all users, as you get to see and interact with potential travelers directly.
  • Personal Connection: it allows Andiámonos to establish a more personal connection with travelers and understand values and expectations. This can help ensure that the person is a good fit for the rest of the group and for the trip style.

You can’t travel in this occasion? We invite you to book the call anyway!

If you are not sure you want/can travel for this particular trip, it doesn’t metter, just book the call! Meeting the Andiámonos team will allow you to fully understand our travel philosophy and solve any doubt you may have. 

You will feel as you are having a nice and inspirational conversation with a new traveler & friend!

You may have observed there is no detailed itinerary in our trip pages. Well, actually it is not a mistake! At Andiámonos we don’t just copy-paste itineraries, as our aim is to offer atypical trips for our authentic travelers to live something unconventional and deeply connected with the local side of the world.

In the video call you will be given details on the itinerary and the full program will be sent to the confirmed travelers.

Don’t forget we are here to Slow Travel the world! Our mantra? Authenticity, flexibility and real connections!

FAQ's

1. Video call

If you are interested in any experience, you can easily book the brief meeting with Andiámonos, through the calendar you can find at the bottom of the trip page. In the call, you will have the chance to meet the Trip Coordinator and talk about your trip expectations, doubts, why you love traveling, hobbies and whatever! It will be a nice conversation from traveler to traveler!

2. Payment process

In case that’s the trip you are looking for, you are ready to book your spot paying just the 20% of the total amount. The rest of the amount will be paid 30 days before the departure. If you book your spot less than 30 days before the departure date, you will not pay the 20% deposit, but the entire amount.

3. We are ready to go!

As soon as the travelers crew is completed, a Whatsapp group will be created by your Trip Coordinator; this way you can get in touch with your future travel buddies and share useful information about your trip. The week before the departure, your trip coordinator will schedule a  video call with all the trip participants, to talk about the last details and solve any doubt out.

We are ready to go!

As travelers are coming from different Countries, flights to and from the destination are not included.

Life is better with flexibility! In fact, in this way you are free to decide the departure airport and the airline company, as well as if you want to stay more days in the destination, outside of the trip dates.

Before to book any flight, please be sure you have been informed by Andiámonos that the trip is officially confirmed.

To avoid huge age differences and personalize the experiences even more, Andiámonos trips are thought for people from 28 to 42 years old.  Anyway, if you are slightly younger or older and you think you are aligned with the trip mood, just apply through the calendly form. We will have then the possibility to see, through the video interview, if the experience is suitable for you.

Furthermore, in case we reach the minimum travelers number for your age group, we are happy to offer the experiences for people belonging to different age ranges. 

Last but not least, we offer you the option to personalize a trip for you and your group of friends/colleagues. Whether you have a specific destination in mind or you’re open to suggestions, our dedicated team is here to turn your travel dreams into reality.

For customized trips, you can contact us sending an email to monica@andiamonos.com

Workations are especially designed for remote working as we will work during the day and enjoy local experiences during the free time and weekends. No stress though! In case you are not a Remote Worker or you are, but you just want to enjoy some days off, you can have a look at the Group Trips, where we don’t work,  just play!

As you can imagine, this will depend on the destination (different prices in Italy than in Norway) and on your travel style (how many times you decide to eat and drink outside, if you want to have extra activities etc.).

Also, it depends on wheter you attend a Workation or a Group Trip, as the concept is totally different. In fact, during a Workation we use to cook in our shared kitchen and eat outside a couple of time, but again, we want everyone to feel free to choose the routine according to the personal habits. In the case of Group Trips is more usual to eat outside as we will be visiting the whole day, although you can also arrange some packed lunch to save money.

For us, flexibility is key and we want anyone to be able to attend a trip, without too many limitations for the traveler’s specific budget!

The Money Pot is a group deposit in local currency, managed and collected by your Trip Coordinator.

The amount of the Money Pot is around 120€ for the whole trip duration, but may change according to the destination.

Money pot includes:

  • Petrol and road tolls
  • Tourist taxes
  • Coordinator’s money pot share
  • Any extra activity that all members of the group agree on doing. Of course, if someone doesn’t want to participate in a certain activity, we will return that specific amount to the person who doesn’t participate in the activity. 
 

In case of any spare money, the remaining amount will be split equally and returned at the end of the trip.

Unexpected events can happen, that’s why we want you to feel comfortable in the moment you decide to book a trip with us.

In fact, if you cancel 15 or more days from the trip departure, we will return the 80% of the total price previously paid, and you will have the possibility to transfer the entire 20% deposit and use it to join future Andiámonos experiences, within 365 days from the cancellation date.

In case you cancel your spot 14 or less days before the trip departure, we will return the 80% of the total price, but unfortunately we will not be able to return the 20% deposit.

What if Andiámonos has to cancel the trip as the minimum number of participants is not reached?

In that unlikely situation, you are free to choose between 2 possibilities:

  1. Ask for a refund for the entire amount you paid.
  2. Transfer the credit to another Andiámonos trip.

This decision is completely up to you!

In case you have any doubt, you can reach out to us sending an email to monica@andiamonos.com

Of course! 

You have the possibility to join an existing trip (in case there are enough spots available), or if you prefer, you can have a fully customized experience for your group. Feel free to send us an email to monica@andiamonos.com explaining your needs and we will be happy to find the best option for your amazing group!
