Since next July, 1st the touristic operators of Municipality of Riomaggiore, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare will have at their disposal some Service Cards of the Cinque Terre National Park, also called “Cinque Terre Card” with a discounted price: these card could be proposed to the guests hosted in our accommodations for one or more days (hotel, rooms, b&b, vacation rentals, apartments, hostels, farmhouse).
With this measure, the Park board would like to help and sustain the “experience tourism” that, for its nature, needs of a longer period and in the meanwhile it would like to reward the operators collaborating with the Park itself, to improve the environmental performance as expected in the Certificate of Environmental Quality.
“The Service Card with a discounted price for accommodations represents a strategic tool to improve the quality of the offer because it would like to encourage guests who like to discover the heritage of our Protected Area, from the footpaths to the network of wine production – said the Cinque Terre Park President Mr. Vittorio Alessandro. Then, it could improve to monitoring the touristic flow through the collection of data about it.”
