Italy – Partner Country 2018

Italy – Partner Country 2018

Every year, this beautiful country is visited by over 50 million foreigners. This gives it the 5th place in the world in terms of the number of visitors. Italy is the heir of an ancient civilization which laid the foundation for today’s Europe, and its rich history is reflected by the fact that it has the biggest number of monuments entered into the UNESCO cultural heritage list. It bewitches with the beauty of its landscape, from its enchanting islands and coastal beaches, to the Alpine peaks. The whole picture is completed by delicious cuisine, making it a real paradise for gourmets.

Eight Italian regions: Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Emilia-Romagna, Umbria, Sardinia, Abruzzo, Lazio, Marche and Apulia – will present their qualities at the stand with an area of nearly 400 sqm. Its attractiveness will be ensured by 80 sub-exhibitors who will present the tourist facilities, not forgetting though about the possibility to taste the truly Italian flavours. They will include Italian cheeses and cooked meats as well as exquisite wines and liqueurs. And all this accompanied by the sounds of Italian music.

     

 

 

 

Central Italy’s Abruzzo has always attracted visitors thanks to its enviable snow season, but up until recently the majority were European. Now the region, a world away from modern Italy, could be on the verge of an international tourism boom. With incoming travel numbers on the rise in the country, visitors are increasingly searching for lesser known and undiscovered regional destinations — and Abruzzo has it all. This includes lakes, the Adriatic coastline, national parks, imposing mountain ranges, UNESCO heritage sites, some of the most beautiful medieval towns in the country, and an eclectic and diverse cuisine that changes from the beach to the mountains.

Also known as “Le Puglie” in the plural form, this region contains, in fact, many souls. The “heel of Italy’s boot,” Apulia is a charming region that can be visited all year round and is suspended among nature, history, tradition, tastes and spirituality.
Apulia, the spur of the Italian Boot, is an enchanting region that spreads lengthwise along the sea – marvelous beaches that will delight every traveler, from the sandy Torre dell’Orso and Porto Cesario, to the rocky, boulder-encrusted Riviera of Otranto and Santa Maria di Leuca. At Santa Maria di Leuca the calm and crystalline waters of the Ionian Sea mix with those of the intense and azure Adriatic. Sea lovers have multiple options in Apulia, from Gallipoli, the “Gem of Salento,” to Gargano, “Italy’s Buttress,” which protrudes out into the clear sea, where one finds the the beautiful Tremiti Islands.

With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, mean average temperatures between 14° and 20°C, Sardinia is the ideal venue for a wellness holiday any time of the year.
With 1150 miles of limpid sea water you can swim, dive or simply relax on Sardinian white sandy beaches. A surprisingly unspoilt nature coupled with a healthy lifestyle make Sardinia the ‘land of long life’. Unspoilt countryside protected marine parks, woods and forests, navigable lakes and marshland where flamingos nest. You can climb the highest peaks in Gennargentu mountains and follow the old roads of the shepherds’ transhumance or explore the secret hidden civilization of nuraghi in Tiscali. Sardinia is an endless island youl’ll never forget!

The Marche region, located on the Adriatic Sea, in Central Italy has a population of just over one and a half million living in five provinces: Ancona, also the capital of the region, and Pesaro Urbino, Macerata, Fermo and Ascoli Piceno. The Marche region is for Italy the “Gate to the East”, it is also the only Italian region, whose name appears in the plural, rich in a variety of landscape and environment. “Le Marche” is a region worth learning because of the multitude of environmental landscapes, the diversity of the richness of nature and art located in an area slightly smaller than 10,000 km2. The region is characterized by the presence of the Apennine mountains, which gently descend along valleys that are parallel to the sea.
