How we came up with these itineraries

The pupils from Taverne elementary school class, accompanied by their teachers, Pamela and Elena, have decided to create itineraries to discover the region and its surroundings to help a disorientated eagle find its way home and at the same time propose an array of one-day programmes to their peers and families.
