#5. Milan

The largest city in Lombardy in northern Italy, Milan is famous around the world for being a hub of fashion and design.

The city also boasts some spectacular architecture and art, epitomized respectively by the Milan Duomo and da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” at the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent. Numerous high-end restaurants round off the ultimate incentive travel experience in this part of Italy.


#4. Rome

As the country’s capital, Rome is the heart and soul of Italian culture. There are the world-renowned Ancient Rome landmarks, such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Via Appia, but also other iconic places like the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain and various superb museums. Of course, Rome is a culinary hotspot as well.

There’s plenty to see and do in the Italian capital, making it an ideal corporate and incentive travel destination.


#3. Parma

A vibrant college city in northern Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, Parma combines stunning architecture, beautiful music, a gorgeous countryside and sensational food to create a fantastic, yet underrated, destination in Italy.

There are many features that distinguish this city from other urban centers in the country, but none do so as convincing as its cuisine. After all, Parma is the birthplace of Parmesan cheese and Parma ham, locally known as Parmigiano Reggiano and prosciutto di Parma.


#2. Florence

Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is widely regarded as the place where the Renaissance first got its foot in the door. Historically, it’s been a center of the Enlightening movement, the home of prominent and influential people like da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante, Galilei, Brunelleschi and Machiavelli.

Nowadays, Florence is one of Europe’s cultural capitals, boasting world-class museums, a well-preserved historic old town, and a number of beautiful parks. It’s also a great base to trips around the glorious Tuscan countryside.


#1. Bologna

Our number one destination for corporate and incentive travel in Italy is Bologna. This historic city in Emilia-Romagna features striking architecture, most notably the sprawling Piazza Maggiore, the City Hall, the Two Towers, and the Basilica di San Petronio.

Bologna is also yet another culinary center in Italy. It’s famous for its handmade pasta dishes, often served with the traditional ragu sauce, as well as Bologna sausage (known locally as Mortadella), balsamic vinegar and olive oils.

Additionally, Bologna also lies in the middle of the so-called Motor Valley. This is the beating heart of Italy’s sports car manufacturing industry, home to the headquarters and factories of iconic brands like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani.
