WHAT IS THE "ALBERGO DIFFUSO"?
The AD is a different type of tourist accommodation, conceived to provide guests with a resort rather than a building. It consists of a central reception and a number of units located in one or more municipalities, and the people living there are part of it.
The AD has been created to make tourists experience the local everyday life and be in touch with the inhabitants. Existing structures have been restored so this kind of accomodation has become a solution to the environmental management. The Albergo Diffuso is a way to join us, stay in our homes and to be part of our communities. It's a nice way to meet. The Albergo Diffuso of Tolmezzo started in 2012 and consists of 12 residences mostly located in the villages surrounding the town. Every unit has been created by the restoring of ancient buildings, so you will also enjoy the atmosphere of the past in these places. You can find the hotel reception in the centre of Tolmezzo, in a large building between Piazza 20 Settembre and Piazza Centa next to the Cathedral. Here you can book accommodation and get tourist information. Tel: +39043341613 cell: +393318028383 mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
