AstiTurismo has collaborated since its inception in the Turismabile project of the Piedmont Region. An initiative desired and implemented by CPD – Consulta per le Persone in Difficoltà Onlus (Council for People in Need) – which intends to encourage tourism in Piedmont and every single territory with the key of accessibility as a synonym of quality of the tourist offer, presenting the historical, artistic, and naturalistic excellences, open, inclusive, and accommodations “for everyone” in the region.
Not only motor, intellectual, or sensorial disabilities, but also those categories of tourists who have special needs: People with food intolerances, allergies, the elderly and even pregnant women. All these people can find in Piedmont the ideal environment for tourism “without barriers”. People with disabilities or with special needs are not considered as “objects” of social tourism, but as subjects of tourism tout-court.
In the Asti region, we have defined paths for an easy fruition of the territory and its excellences.
