The Association

The vagabond is a cultural venture, born in Naples on 8th March 2000 to promote  responsible tourism in South of Italy; it was one of the first to offer responsible tourist journeys with Italy as a destination.

The Vagabond, active partner of AITR (Responsible Tourism Italian Association), is present today in the three partner communities of Naples, Matera and Altamura.

The Activities

In Naples we organize touristic incoming activities and experiential guided tours on schools and groups requests. For real tourist packages we rely on a reliable travel agency. Discover our proposals!

In Matera and Altamura, apart from trips on request, we work on two aspects:

  • Counselling and training on responsible tourism, thanks to a group of experts who cooperates with us.
  • Telling the territory, with a rich offer for both individuals and bodies.

The association

It revolves around our operational head office in Matera but in the past we were active also in Naples, Irpinia, Sicily and Salento.

In short, what we try to do with all our passion is :

  • Allow those who come to us to experience what living here means, not as tourists but as travellers;
  • Promote responsible tourism practices and principles respecting the community, the environment and fostering local economy.
