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 MILAN
If you find yourself in or near Milan for business, don’t journey home as soon as business is over. Why not visit the Leonardo da Vinci Home or view the world-famous “The Last Supper”? Or perhaps you’d prefer to play a round of golf on Lake Como before enjoying an opera performance at La Scala. The options are endless in Milan once the work day is over.
WHEN IN TURIN
When you finish your business in or near Turin, don’t rush back to the airport. You’re in Turin, so why not visit the Egyptian Museum or the Moving Image Museum? Or, be different and spend a day sipping Italy’s best wines at Le Langhe, truffle hunting in Alba or hitting the slopes and skiing the Alps. Whatever your pleasure, indulge it in Torino.
WHEN IN GENOA
Stay awhile. Even though business is done, there’s more to see in Genoa. Kick back for a few more days; after all, why not visit Italy’s largest aquarium, or delve deeper into the heart and history of the city with a visit to the ancient and spectacular city center. You can wrap up your stay in Italy with a visit to Santa Margherita or Portofino. With the important meetings out of the way, Genoa is your oyster.
