Some of our focuses:
Everybody who visits Rome is inevitably moved by its timeless beauty. La Città Eterna (the Eternal City) has been around for over 3,000 years. No other city in the world reflects the history of human ventures more magically than Rome. With its ancient ruins and its modern galleries and shopping areas, Rome has certainly grown beyond time. Imperial, Classical, Renaissance, Baroque, and Modern periods are all represented in Rome’s art and architecture within the city that itself resembles an immense open-air museum, with exhibitions dating back as far as three millennia.

MILAN & THE LAKE DISTRICT
Milan vibrates with incredible energy – it’s the Italian capital of business, fashion, and interior design. While the architecture of the city has evolved and impressive new buildings and skyscrapers keep changing the skyline of Milan, it still boasts cute little historical neighbourhoods like the picturesque Brera and Navigli, where you can relive Milan’s past. All of this is surrounded by the enchanting Lake Como, the princely Lake Maggiore, the medieval Bergamo, and the surprising wine region of Franciacorta.

Tuscany, with its landscapes and medieval citadels, is the cradle of the Renaissance. Today, Siena, Pisa, Lucca and Florence still host the most famous artworks in the world. Top fashion stores, artisan ateliers, and superb food complement the Tuscan scenery at its best, and restored landmarks provide contemporary cultural spaces. Meanwhile, Florence offers a wave of recent openings of bars, boutiques, and restaurants located away from the throngs of tourists.

The heart of Emilia Romagna beats strong with four international Formula-1 circuits, 13 prestigious motor museums, 188 racing teams, and 12 private collections.

Goethe said, “If you haven’t seen Sicily, you haven’t seen Italy.” In fact, Sicily might be the key to understanding the entire ancient world. This abundant island is home to some of the most beautiful ancient Greek temples and theatres. Catania, Palermo, Taormina, Ragusa provide just few examples of the unique blend from Phoenician, Greek, Arab, Norman, and Spanish cultures. And if that’s not enough reason to hold your event in Sicily, consider the countless heavenly beaches surrounding the island.

NAPLES & THE AMALFI COAST
Naples is chaotic, irresistibly charming, and utterly fascinating, and we love it just the way it is. Naples is one of the most utterly fascinating places in Italy. The Amalfi Coast is home to some of Italy’s finest hotels and restaurants, spread along a beautiful coast of rugged cliffs and sandy coves. To the south, the resort towns of Amalfi and Positano cluster at the edge of the sea.
