Event and Wedding Planner Organizes Two Educational Tours in Italy
- Özgür Töre
Italy celebrates its tourist restart with two educational tours in Calabria (a southern region) and Tuscia (the current province of Viterbo, in northern Lazio), specially designed for meetings and wedding planners, as well as for a selection of travel bloggers and specializing journalists.
The format, called Undiscovered Italy Tours, is designed and created by Daniela Corti Events with the patronage of Enit, the national tourist board. Now in its second edition, it is carried out in collaboration with Canadian Tour Operator Susan Barone of Luxury Weddings Worldwide and InStyle Vacations – which certifies the international outlook of the initiative.
The operators, about 20 for each of the two trips, will visit places and venues suitable for weddings as well as for international events, and will personally meet the local excellences of the field. They will be hosted for three nights and four days in accommodation facilities suitable for weddings too and will be shown the best of these geographical areas, from various points of view: the venues, the food & wine chain, the excellences and their most significant services for weddings or major events. Many important sponsorships are granted by local institutions, thus attesting the enthusiasm with which these regions and provinces participate in the Italian tourist revival.
Calabria – June 22-25
The group will be based at the Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi in Roccella Ionica and then go to: Pizzo (for a dinner promoted by the Vibo Valentia Chamber of Commerce with local food and wine); Tropea (one of the most beautiful seaside resorts in the world); Casale della Rocca in Gerace (a beautiful example of traditional Calabrian architecture); Lamezia, with a visit to Cantine Statti (five hundred hectares of native vines) and Villa Ventura (an eighteenth-century residence immersed in a fascinating green); Torre Sant’Antonio (a thirteenth-century building, part of a luxury resort); Soverato (blue flag and Ionian pearl); Santa Caterina, with its famous beaches, and the medieval village of Badolato.
