The Cittaslow Movement

Have you ever heard about Cittaslow?


The Cittaslow movement is an international network of towns that prioritize the quality of life for their residents and visitors. The term “Cittaslow” literally means “slow city”, from the Italian term “città”, city.

The movement originated in Italy in 1991 and has since spread to 291 cities and 33 countries around the world.

These towns have be chosen to prioritize the quality of life over the rush of modern living, as they fulfill some specific requirements that embrace sustainable practices, support local businesses, and place an emphasis on preserving their unique heritage.

“Towns where Living is Good”

Cittaslow aims to promote a slower, more sustainable way of living, fostering a sense of community and preserving local traditions. These cities often prioritize pedestrian-friendly environments, local food production, and cultural heritage preservation.

By embracing the principles of the Cittaslow movement, cities strive to create a more balanced and enjoyable living experience for both residents and tourists, becoming the perfect scenery for those looking for a slow living experience.

At Andiámonos, we have focused on organizing group trips and workations in slow cities destinations, to offer a unique opportunity to engage in meaningful cultural exchanges by participating in traditional crafts or attending community events, and experience a more relaxed way of life.

Exploring slow cities can provide a refreshing change of pace from the hustle and bustle of busy tourist destinations.
