Slow Food Travel is designed for curious, responsible travelers who want to really get to know the local gastronomic culture of the Buzau region, without forgetting sustainability and the food biodiversity.
Slow Food offers a new model for tourism, made up of meetings and exchanges with farmers, cheesemakers, herders, bakers and winegrowers who, along with the chefs who cook their products, will be the narrators of their local areas and unique guides to the local traditions.
