The initiative of the Touring Club Italiano is now 20 years: the confirmations and the new entries of the most virtuous hamlets.
Since 1998, the Touring Club Italiano promotes the “Orange Flags” project, for the history, traditions and landscapes valuation of the Italian inland. For this reason, every 3 years it is committed to honor the most beautiful, virtuous and operative Italian villages which put their efforts into highlighting and reintroducing their own territory, by the protection of the most ancient traditions and the natural context beauty, as well as in promoting the touristic and cultural initiatives.

It is interesting to notice how, among the region names with the highest number of rewarded villages contained in the list of the “Orange Flags 2018”, Tuscany, Piedmont and Marche, respectively on the first, second and third place, stand out.

Then Suvereto in the province of Livorno and Volterra in the province of Pisa.
