Ecotourism, spa retreats and spiritual travel are more popular than ever, catering to increasing numbers of travellers who want to learn and grow while on holiday. Damanhur, Italy's famous centre for art, culture, peace studies and community building, is poised to become a major destination for such tourists. "The Traveler's Guide to Damanhur" has three parts, each focusing on a different aspect of visiting Damanhur and The Temples of Humankind. The first part contains practical information on the essentials of travelling in the Piedmont region of Italy, including details on: transportation, lodgings, places to visit, including the Temples of Humankind, restaurants and wineries, shopping, classes, workshops, festivals and other public events, recommended spa treatments and massage therapists.The history of the Damanhurian community and the Valchiusella valley is given a fun treatment in a full-colour European comic book section reminiscent of the "Tintin" books, by well-known graphic novelist Cinzia di Felice.
This book is rounded out by humorous travel writing and more serious essays by friends of Damanhur; Massimo Introvigne, director of the Centre for the Study of New Religions; and, natural philosopher Richard Grossinger, and others.
