"Dolce Vita" between Cote d`Azur and Tuscany
Picturesque  bays frame the azure-blue Mediterranean, a dolphin near the coast of Liguria (pictured below), year-round mild climate, cultural and  historical sites of world renown, and most important the Italian "dolce vita" make Liguria the top destination for Incentives & Meetings  in Northern Italy.

The diversity of the landscape  and partly still untouched nature offer excellent opportunities for  Active Programs. Set off on a search for "Moby Dick" while  Whale-Watching aboard a sailing boat, or show off your cooking skills in  "Team Cooking" at an agriturismo.

Following are just a few suggestions for fantastic programs in Liguria.

How to get to Liguria

If  your destination is in western Liguria, the best airport for your  arrival would be Nice. It will take about 90 minutes by bus to reach the  Riviera. Genoa is the preferred airport for destinations further east. A  bus ride to glamorous Portofino will take approximately 60 minutes. If  you are a multinational group, Milan airport would be your best choice.

Accommodation and Locations in Liguria

  • Choose  your accommodation at "Castello" which is situated at water’s edge and  allows for fantastic views of the Ligurian coast.  The private beach and  park-like grounds invite to relax or participate in active programs.
  • Villa  Chiossone: This villa, situated along the promenade of Genoa, has been completely renovated and is ideal for meetings of up to 160 people.  You have an absolutely fantastic view from the terrace overlooking the  sea.
