Our Emerging Destination this month is non-other than Puglia, Italy.
The region offers to the visitor not only its lavish natural beauty, like the unspoilt seas of the Gargano and the Salento, but also many artistic treasures such as the beautiful Romanesque and Baroque cathedrals, the puzzling Castel Del Monte and the “Trulli di Alberobello” which have been included in the UNESCO heritage.
How do you arrive in Puglia? With daily flights from most major european cities, it’s easy to get to and from Puglia. Two international airports, one in the north (Bari) and one in the south (Brindisi) allow easy access to any location in Puglia.
With growing numbers, Puglia’s mild weather, sunshine, fabulous beaches, breathtaking resorts, eco-tourism adventures in natural parks, unique culture and a cuisine that is renowned worldwide for its excellence, is gaining traction and is an increasingly popular incentive destination. Puglia represents a perfect destination for small incentives to large meetings and congresses using venues such as del Levante Convention Center. This massive venue is 250,000 sqft in space and they host conventions, conferences, workshops, meetings and small seminars, with a capacity ranging from a few dozen to more than 7,000.
Puglia sports some of the most beautiful hotels in the region. Masseria Torre Maizza is located in the most glamorous destination on the Italian Adriatic coast. Inspired by the sensational landscapes of Puglia and the ethos of Rocco Forte Hotels, it exquisitely blends local heritage with contemporary luxury and unparalleled service.
The Borgo Egnazia, one of the Leading Hotels of the World, offers old-world charm and minimalist beauty that is signature of Puglia. Beyond the welcoming Court, the Borgo branches into pretty stone alleys that hide delightful little houses, small treasure chests of peace, dotted with secret gardens adorned with bougainvillea, jasmine, rosemary and olive trees.
