    New walking destinations with Adagio

    Adagio Walking Holidays
    over 2 years ago

    Adagio holidays like to get closer and believe that they create memories that linger. Amble through a vineyard, then taste the wine. Buy your olives and bread at the morning market, and eat them by the lake. Take the cog-wheel train up the mountain, then wander through alpine meadows, full of flowers and the sound of cow bells. A stroll here, an amble there, with time to discover, chat and enjoy.
    It’s a slow amble so that you feel and appreciate your surroundings so much more.
