Our Philosophy

 

“The only rule of travel is: don’t come back the way you went. Come back changed.” (Anne Carson)

 

“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.” (Aldous Huxley)

ANYWAYS is an online platform for travelers and curious people.
It is about activities and experiences that appeal to the 5 senses. We combine Italy’s excellences, culture and art, tradition and food, fantastic landscapes and artists, and offer all Italy lovers, tourists and Italians alike, a varied selection of tours that awaken our senses.

We focus on cities far away from mass tourism, markets in small villages, craftsmanship and local personalities. Together we will discover interesting corners, signature dishes, special products and craftsmanship. These hidden gems stand for an innovative and exquisite Italy. This is the reason why we aim to make our tours an enriching experience.

The offer is completed by photographic and artistic activities, show cooking, nature trails, art and craft workshops, team building activities and a comprehensive immersion in the world of craftsmanship, also as a protagonist.

Based on our five senses, our tours are divided into the following categories:

LET'S SEE

Because seeing is not only seeing, but also watching, looking, taking in the moment, and empathizing. It is about dwelling on what and how (to see), sometimes behind a lens, sometimes only with our eyes, or even about reinterpretation of the meaning of the beauty of this sense.

 

Show experiences

LET'S FEEL

In order to listen, to smell, to feel. With all our senses. With all we are. To perceive the world as if we had only this one at our disposal.

 

Show experiences

 


LET'S TOUCH


In order to be active, to be good at handcrafting. To be amazed about how much and what our hands can do together with those of artists and artisans.

 

 

Show experiences

LET’S TASTE

In order to enjoy well-known flavors, but also completely new ones. Will they taste the same with closed eyes?

LET’S LEARN


Because you can learn, and you should do so, at any age. As every new experience, every input from the world and from life can result in deep emotions and let us come back home different from when we left.
Show experiences

SPECIALS

For special occasions and activities in order to surprise others but more importantly yourself.

Let´s start ! ANYWAYS!

In a world that is turning faster and faster, where everyday life distracts from simple things, our goal is to rediscover the beauty and value of small things, from the most precious we have: our senses.

What about You? What sense do You choose today?

Let´s start ! ANYWAYS!

 

WHY ANYWAYS

The name ANYWAYS expresses all nuances that characterize our project in one single concept. And it is a pun:

anyway, an English adverb that also means however, as well, nonetheless, in any case;

any, also means a bit of,  anything, anyone, respectively;

way(s), also means direction, alley, street, path, route, style.

ANYWAYS is a way to lose ourselves in the streets, in the alleys, step by step.

It is a route, real and tangible, to immerse ourselves in the surrounding world.

It is an inner path, a personal journey. To learn new things, broaden our horizons, get more impulses from the world we live in and we sometimes do not know enough about.

It is a direction, to get involved in learning something new: any word, any technique, any ancient tradition, any unknown taste leads us to meet new people, new places without ever stopping.

Therefore, ANYWAYS will also become a community, a way to use modern technology without making the mistake of sitting isolated in front of a screen.

It is a platform to share interests and make discoveries as well as communicate and interact with each other.

WE all are ANYWAYS. And what’s even more important, YOU are  ANYWAYS !
