Italy holds the position of holding a handful of 47 UNESCO Sites, which includes the Colosseum,Vatican City, Field of Miracles, San Gimigmano, and Villa d’Estate, which makes it the perfect place to host the Third Edition of the World Tourism Expo for the year 2102 on September 21-23. The event will be held at Lyrick Theater of Assisi and it is expected to help promote and enhance awareness of the country’s immense artistic, historic, and natural heritage that is often disregarded by the modern youth. It also aims to discuss manner on how these sites could be protected and preserved from irresponsible tourists and visitors arriving at these places.
Over 150 Italian and Foreign Tour Operators are expected to join the exhibition with a goal to increase eco and cultural tourism in the region by establishing circuit maker so tourists will be more attracted to the historical and artistic significance of the place. As expected, conferences and panel discussion will be conducted to increase awareness within the pool of journalists invited to witness the event. WTE understands the great role that media plays in the spread of these UNESCO sites and getting them involved in the act of promoting eco-tourism in the region is one of the big steps to make it a success.
“Mediterranean Cuisine Days” is the theme of the event and it plans to familiarize the world with the culture and nutrition behind the Mediterranean Diet. It is seen by WTE as an invaluable food tradition that will benefit not only Italy but the world as a whole. It offers tasting sessions and even cooking workshops prepared and administered by Gambero Rosso. It is a great way to enjoy the culture of Italy, especially so that the event is offered free for all interested to increase their knowledge of the place.
Assisi, in itself considered one of the UNESCO sites, is the home town of Italy’s patron saint, San Francesco but more known as Saint Francis. It holds the tomb of the saint together with other Roman ruins, museums, shops, and medieval sites. It is easily accessible from Rome Airport or Pisa Airport. From this area, you can take a bus ride to transport you to Assisi, which operates from Monday to Saturdays, or choose to have a more convenient tour of the region by reserving car vehicles prior your scheduled arrival.
