Discover the best and closest destinations to organize a winning incentive trip
The expression “incentive travel” calls to mind images of distant lands, exotic places, white beaches, and crystalline seas. With the Coronavirus emergency and the limitations on traveling, the incentive sector has also begun to look to local tourism. It is a forced choice, but winning!
We will find out why in the following lines.
Let’s start by saying that, from the Alps to the south of the peninsula, there are so many Italian places that are real must-haves for high-level incentive travel. For mountain lovers (both in winter and in summer), or staunch supporters of a sea view trip, your guests will find something interesting in this beautiful country. Impossible to mention all the most exclusive Italian locations, we will limit ourselves to offering you some special ideas to start thinking about your next incentive trip.
The Alps: the mountain jewel of Italy
The Alpine arc hosts some of the most important mountains in Europe and offers breathtaking views: from the green prairies to the edgy peaks of the mountains. Embedded in these fairytale landscapes are some of the most luxurious Alpine destinations.
Courmayeur, at the bottom of the Mont Blanc, is synonymous with chic stay with its top-class hotels and spas, where relax after a day of skiing or north walking. Cortina d’Ampezzo, the Queen of the Dolomites, is the ideal destination for lovers of trekking and skiing. It is a perfect place to walk around the city and shops.
In short, in our Alps, there is certainly no shortage of ideal locations for an incentive trip.
But the list is still long.
Lake Como: the pearl of the lakes
Como is one of the luxury destination par excellence. Lake Como is a perfect incentive destination with its mild Mediterranean climate and romantic landscapes, such as Bellagio and Varenna. To fully enjoy the beauty of the landscape, a boat ride is a must, and dinner with a view is a great way to relax and end a leisure trip.
The sea: the imposing Mediterranean
With about 4000 km of coastline, Italy has crystalline seas and lots of seaside resorts. Many luxury destinations are appreciated and dreamed of all over the world. Portofino, with its colorful buildings, has become synonymous with yachts and the good life. There, you can enjoy maximum comfort surrounded by powerful nature. The Amalfi coast is another jewel of Italy: Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, Minori, and Maiori are some of the most evocative villages in the area with their beaches, crystal clear sea, and delightful vegetation.
The major islands: the queens of the Mediterranean
Sicily and Sardinia are the two largest islands of Italy, and two surprising luxury destinations with great charm and beauty. In addition to amazing nature and ancient history, these islands offer exclusive destinations where you can organize high-class incentive trips. In Sicily, Taormina charms travelers with its white beaches, clear sea, and its unique historical-cultural heritage. Sardinia, on the other hand, is a privileged destination for VIPs. Porto Cervo, the undisputed capital of the Costa Smeralda, is the hub of summer social life and international jet set.
Incentive travel is a great way to reward and motivate your employees, your customers, and supporters, offering them the opportunity to share experiences in luxury locations. For your incentive trip, Italy also offers a rich range of exclusive activities that allow guests to have fun and strengthen interpersonal bonds without giving up comforts. Outdoor activities in fairytale locations, exclusive cultural visits, high-level food, and wine tours, themed itineraries for the most creative, and team building for all tastes are the perfect crowning of a leisure and business trip.
