All places are considered decisive for the course of European history.

Concept


The Hedonism itinerary represents a way to stimulate young visitors’ curiosity to discover a Europe full of pleasures, experiences enhancing the feeling of well-being, now, and in the remote past, revisiting a few places and traditions showing us how this search for pleasure has been a constant in the life of European citizens and societies. The combination of intangible and tangible heritage in tourism is considered a trend, in particular to young travellers: Hedonism perfectly mixes together the outstanding WH sites in Belgium and the long tradition of trappist Belgian beers; the great traditions of the Alto Douro Wine Region and the Porto Wine; the Longobards heritage places in Italy - Cividale del Friuli - and the well-known production of delicious wines in the Collio Valley.

Concept


Urbanity / Empire/ Cities of Europe’ tour appeals for a more ‘active’ and cosmopolitan experience, also designed in order to attract young tourists and to stimulate their search for adventure and discovery. The cities are ‘living spaces’ encouraging a true and interactive touristic experience. This does not collide with the spirit of tradition and the sense that cities are also ‘memory spaces’ where there is always something new, or ‘old’ to discover and learn about.


Two different concepts / itineraries are offered:

    #1. URBAN CITIES, linking together European medium and big design/crative cities

    #2. SMALL-TOWNS GEMS, linking together European small gems cities and tows
