  • Incentive Package - Valle d'Aosta

    This mountainous region will charm everyone with its hundred castles, an authentic collection of Gothic sculptures, breath-taking views, luxurious ski resorts such as Courmayeur and Cervinia, isolated hiking trails, a rich food culture, unspoilt wildlife, baroque village churches, Europe’s largest casino and 116.000 enjoyable inhabitants who have fought very hard for their independence against the reigning Savoys in the 12th century.

    Valle d'Aosta borders France, and most local people are in fact bilingual. The cultural influence of Switzerland and Germany can also be felt, through the Swiss-style architecture of many buildings, and the German-based dialects that are spoken in some areas. This is a destination for small incentives, perfect for clients interested in skiing, nature and sport activities.

    The cuisine of this region is based on cheese and meat, rye bread, potatoes, polenta, gnocchi, risotto and soups. Grazing cows on Alpine meadows provide fine butter and cheese, called toma, Robiola and above all Fontina DOP, used in many dishes, including fondua, made with milk as in Piedmont's fonduta. This region is famous for some very interesting wines including the Petit Rouge Enfer d'Arvier and Torrette, the Blanc de Valdigne of Morgex and La Salle, the Petite Arvine, the Vien de nus, for the red wine and the Malvoisie (apparently a mutation of Pinot Gris) and for the rare dessert white of Nus.

    Access to this region is through the international airports of Torino and Genève as well as the smaller airport in the capital city of Aosta.

  • Incentive Package Veneto 
     

    Veneto stretches over a wide range of places you have to see at least once in a lifetime. It has the most romantic city in the world, Venice, the mountain scenery of the Dolomites in the north, Romeo and Juliet�s home in Verona, the small towns along the shores of Lake Garda, the cities rich in art such as Padovo, Vicenza and many others. It is almost impossible to find a reason why not to visit Veneto.

    Veneto is among the foremost wine-producing regions, both for quality and quantity. As a seafood haven, Venice exalts risotto nero (blackened with cuttlefish ink), scampi (prawns) and spider crabs called granseole, or moleche when males shed their shells in spring and fall. But Venetians also dine on the earthly likes of risi e bisi (rice and peas), fegato alla veneziana (calf's liver and onions) and Carpaccio. That raw beef dish originated in Venice, as did the rampantly fashionable dessert called tiramis�. The Adriatic abounds in fish. The plains of the Po, Adige and Piave rivers supply livestock, rice for risotto and corn for polenta. The hills that flank the Alps from Lake Garda to Cortina d'Ampezzo provide game, mushrooms, wine and a bit of olive oil, along with the climate for aging prosciutto, salame and cheeses.

    Too numerous to mention all of the wines as Venice's region has emerged in recent times as Italy's largest producer of wine with a major share classified as DOC or DOCG. Some of the more well known include Soave, Valpolicella, Bardolino, Amarone and the famous prosecco, taken as an aperitif.

    This region is reached very easily with airports in Venice, Verona and Treviso with flights from European and Intercontinental destinations
