Why visit Italy

There are about 40,000 hotels in Italy. Every hotel has rates fixed in agreement with the Provincial Tourist Board. Most hotels quote all-inclusive rates, which include taxes, service, heating or air-conditioning. Also we have around 2,000 quality approved Bed&Breakfast located in the most popular destinations around Italy. Also hundreds of convents, monasteries and other religious institutions offering accommodations. Accommodation in private homes and villas are available in most cities and towns in Italy.

ART CITIES: Italy has a long recorded history that the biggest problem facing the traveler is to choose among the nation's endless cultural attractions. All main centres, most of the provincial cities and many quite small towns have museums. Of all the countries in the worls, there is none more magical than Italy, a traveler's dream destination. Ancien monuments and archeological sites are perfectly preserved; the museums are bursting with
the genius of Italy's finest sons: Giotto,Botticelli, Raffaello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Tiziano, Canova; contemporary architects are still inspired by ancient buildings and squares (piazze). Italian cities are veritable living museums
The Mediterranean hosts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Italy's beach resorts attract more and more tourists year after year, for it is said the Italian beaches are like treasures to discover and behold.

The beach resorts were home to many tourists during the summer season, today many now claim this their year round home. The wonders of sea air provide some of the healthiest fresh air, known for their regenerative properties; the sea air is a relief and a healthy escape from city life.

Italy is a peninsula extending into the central Mediterranean Sea, northeast of Tunisia.
Its 7,600 km of coastline have some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean
, the Ligurian Sea, the Sardinian Sea and the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the west the Sicilian Sea, and the Ionian Sea in the south and the Adriatic Sea in the east.

After exploring the cities, touring the lakes and walking in the mountains, the beaches are the perfect place to relax, unwind and reflect. Most of the year the beaches are sunny, and with 7,600 miles of shoreline bordering Italy and its islands, you can easily find waters where the temperatures are ideal for swimming. Miles upon miles of golden, sun drenched sand, in some places up to 1 km deep.

The sea welcomes the sun seeker in comfort and style. An array of colours, which one can quickly identify by the rows of neatly laid out sun umbrellas and deck chairs, which seem to almost dot the entire seashore.

 • FOOD AND WINE: The main characteristic of Italian cooking is its healthy balance, the excellent basic ingredients being simply cooked and retaining their original goodness and freshness. Simple and yet with such a variety of flavors and rich inventiveness in preparation, that even the most demanding gourmet is delighted. ts climate, soil and very old traditions of viticulture make Italy a natural wine growing nation.

The wines are as personal as a name, as different as the colors of the rainbow and as much a part of Italian life as almost 3,000 years of tradition can make them.

The Etruscans of North-Central Italy, who created one of the peninsula's earliest civilizations, left evidence of how to make wine. The Greeks who soon after established themselves in the South
gave Italy the name Enotria
(the land of wine).
For centuries wine growing has been the cultivation which used most of the labor of the Italian farmers; this is still true today; a large part of the population is engaged in the vine and wine industry.

 • MEETING AND INCENTIVES: Italy has always been a true oasis of knowledge, a place for meeting and comparison where experiences can be exchanged and influences intersected. Environment and quality make Italy a perfect destination for the traveler and businessman.
The tradition of the Grand Tour, encouraged by the Enlightenment in the 18th. century and by the rich bourgeoisie during the following century has now become a mass phenomenon, and modern tourism brings over 15 billions of dollars into Italy every year.  
Behind this  uncontrollable desire  to visit Italy is probably the variety of things to do and see, places to visit, people to meet.
Tour operators the world over know and appreciate this great variety. In a world where there is an ever growing mobility from a geographical, professional and cultural point of view and work tends to be conducted more on an individual basis than before and be more specialized, a country like Italy which offers stimulating environments, a good climate and a variety and wealth of history and culture is also ideal for conventions, which are of course connected with travel, holidays and tourism.
Participants at conventions in any region of Italy find fully-equipped centers and beautiful venues, often in particularly prestigious places and which are efficiently organized.

In fact the options for venues are so numerous as to be quite unique the world over.

In addition to the traditional convention centers and big hotels with congress facilities, one can choose from a wide range of old palaces, castles, historic residences, resorts, magnificent villas and country seats, often set in parks in the Italian style with fountains, lakes and plenty of vegetation, carefully chosen and well tended.
Here is an inextricable fabric of landscape and architecture, works of art and traditions which distinguish Italy from other countries and make it the «ideal place» for conventions in all four seasons, for work and pleasure.

And this is a great advantage for the congress-goer because work and pleasure are becoming more strongly linked all the time.

The exchange of information, feelings and opinions which one particular group of individuals takes part in at a congress is unlimited, and direct exchanges cannot be substituted by even the most powerful media.

 • THERMAL SPAS: Italy's richness in thermal and mineral waters, combined with the mildness of the climate and the beauty of the scenery, have made it a favorite venue for "health care tourism".

Since the last century hotels with extensive facilities have grown up around spas, which have established international reputations.

Abano, Bormio, Bagno Vignoni, Saturnia, Bagni del Mulino, Salsomaggiore, Chianciano, Montecatini, Fiuggi and Ischia are just a few names among the many which are known throughout the world and which attract millions of visitors every year.
