Italian Chapter



Italy has been attracting tourists for centuries and was always a prominent feature of the Grand Tour. Today it is also attracting conference delegates and incentive travellers to it's warm Mediterranean climate. Home of the original Roman Empire, Italy has many historic buildings many of which can be made available as conference venues.

There is so much to see and do in Italy that it spoils its visitors for choice. Whilst most people visit Rome or Florence on their first trip to Italy, there is much to see in the rest of the country... From the beautiful Mediterranean coast line, to little towns and villages high in the Italian Alps, to the Italian lakes of Como and Maggiore. Just to the south of the Alps is the Lombardy region with it's sprawling countryside interspersed with cities such as Milan with it's magnificent architecture, including the main railway station, built like some giant Gothic cathedral and carved from solid marble blocks. Milan also has excellent meeting facilities available in the Sol Meliá and Hilton Hotels.

The food of Italy is up amongst the best in Europe... It's not just pizza and pasta... It's the Italian truffles which impart their special flavour to so many gourmet dishes, not to mention the porcini mushrooms with their unique natural flavour of pork. Combine this with the wonderful fresh Italian salads and you have one of the healthiest diets in the world.

Conferences and seminars are at very much home in Italy, where in many conference centres and hotels, you will find the latest state-of-the-art gadgetry including simultaneous translation equipment, special effects, radio microphones and tele-conferencing. D.A.
