Workshop Active Leisure  La Spezia and Terre dei Poeti

16th - 20th October 2019 


Active and Experiential Tourism between La Spezia, 5 Terre, Portovenere, Riccò del Golfo and Lunigiana

 One territory, thousand experiences: La Spezia, 5 Terre, Portovenere, Riccò del Golfo, Lunigiana will host, from 16th to 20th October, a large group of foreign buyers to live an on-site experience and touch the different outdoor activities that the area can offer even out of season thanks to a favorable climate.

The statistical data confirm the growth of the demand for holidays in which the living experience represents the added value of the tourist package linked to nature, sport, well-being, food&wine, culture, slow tourism, adventure, to the territory, to the demonstrations, to the folklore etc. The province of La Spezia and Lunigiana, between the sea and the hinterland, between water activities and walks in the countryside to discover villages and castles, represent an ideal mix for those who focus on experiential tourism.

The Active Leisure Workshop - La Spezia and Terre dei Poeti is organized by the Travel Group, which with the events division has been signing Travel Open Days since 2010. The leader of the initiative is the Tourism Councilorship of La Spezia. "Our offer is complete and structured - explains the Tourism Councilor, Mr. Paolo Asti - ideal even out of the high seas

on, especially for those tourists coming from the countries where winter grants very few possibilities for outdoor activities".

The scheduled event includes a workshop day (October 17th) on the Costa Fortuna moored in the port of La Spezia. Thanks to the hospitality of Costa Crociere, foreign buyers will be able to meet the many local sellers who will present the territory and the wide range of indoor activities during B2B appointments.

The other two days (18th and 19th October) will be dedicated to discover the territory: the operators gathered in the various trade associations (Confcommercio, Confesercenti, Confindustria Turismo, CNA, Confartigianato) will propose to buyers specific tours to know the different activities available in the area.

"From La Spezia to Lunigiana, from Riccò del Golfo to Portovenere, up to the Cinque Terre National Park: with the two days educational tour - Councilor Asti adds - our experiential offer will be able to excite the buyers".
