Rome tour company EcoArt Travel, known for its acclaimed tours of Rome by electric Segway, has launched two new day trips in 2014.
A step aside from both Segway tours and typical sightseeing, these day trips from Rome focus on Italy's often overlooked natural heritage.
Guests have their choice between a summer day at the beach in Sperlonga and a boating and swimming adventure at off-the-grid Ponza Island. Sperlonga is a protected marine reserve while the island of Ponza is under the protection of Circeo National Park.
Guests on the company's Ponza tour, launching in July 2014, will appreciate having the guesswork taken out of deciphering the often-cryptic Italian train and hydrofoil schedules, which, for the most part, don't line up.
"We wanted to remove the stress of the logistics of getting to Ponza and make this as easy as possible for our guests. Our day trip includes all transfers by air-conditioned bus, hydrofoil tickets, boat excursions and meals once on the island," said Mr. Cosimo Arena, COO of EcoArt Travel, "Plus the trip is accompanied by an English-speaking tour leader, eliminating any potential issues caused by the language barrier."
EcoArt's day trips to Ponza Island and Sperlonga beach run on weekdays starting from July 2014. For more information or to book, visit www.EcoArtTravel.com
