Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwatering Italian meal in these three cities.
WHEN IN TRENTO
After business is finished stay in Trento and go back in time with a visit to the old villages of Vigo di Fasso, Rango and Mezzano. Searching for something more modern? Be mesmerized by Muse Science Museum’s unique architecture. Stretch your legs with a hike or a ski run in the stunning Dolomites; take in the beauty of Trento’s 16th-century Piazza Duomo and relax with a glass of some of the region’s famous wines, Teroldego, Lagrein, Muller Thurgau.
WHEN IN BOLOGNA
All done with business in Bologna? Then it’s time for some fun in Emilia Romagna. Take a Ferrari or Ducati around the hills outside Modena. Or go on a foodie tour and savor Prosciutto, Culatello, Parmigiano Reggiano and balsamic vinegar. Take in a Verdi opera in the Teatro Regio in Parma. Walk along the city walls and gardens in Ferrara. Unwind in medieval Bologna, a city rich in art, culture and world-class gastronomy before heading back to the United States.
WHEN IN ROME
Business and pleasure … that’s Rome. At the end of a day of business meetings, the Eternal City awaits you in all its glory. Visit Maxxi; jog in Villa Borghese Gardens; enjoy spaghetti alla carbonara in Testaccio; people watch with a spritz in Piazza Navona; and take in the view from the Belvedere at the Colosseum. If time allows, go out to the Old Appian Way, Hadrian’s Villa in Tivoli.
