The Widespread Hospitality Network (Rete di Accoglienza Diffusa) consists of tourist and commercial operators in the municipal area of Vicopisano (accommodation facilities, restaurants, bars, shops) who took part in a training course on tourism (promoted for free by the municipal administration) aimed at promoting the partnership between public and private sphere and at enhancing Vicopisano village – and all its territory – as more and more organised tourist destination.

The operators that belong to the network represent non-institutional information and reception points, that – in their specific activities and in their working hours – can cooperate with the municipal Tourist Office in the important task of providing information to tourists, travellers and guests – also through a corner dedicated to informative brochures supplied by the Tourist Office.

The aim of the project is twofold: on the one hand it potentially offers more points of “contact” with the area for tourists and guests, on the other hand it encourages and promotes hospitality and it spreads a greater culture of welcome.

These are the structures belonging to the official Widespread Hospitality Network:
