Friday, 10 December 2021 11:51

Traveling means plunging oneself into unexpected landscapes and encounters, unknown places and sensations. The pandemic marks an epochal change with over-tourism a distant memory, and the new watchword is travel experience. People are looking for open spaces, meaningful experiences, and ways to explore towns and villages and smaller areas with cultural depth. 

Itinerando in the Fiera di Padova fairgrounds 29-30 January 2022

What makes a holiday unforgettable is no longer just the product, but the emotions and the memories it leaves, and this veritable boom in experiential tourism finds an outlet in Itinerando, in the Fiera di Padova fairgrounds on 29 and 30 January 2022. Very much a forerunner of innovative experiences for free time and holidays, Itinerando is the first exhibition open to the public in Italy entirely dedicated to experiential tourism.

Three macro sectors: Experiences, Destinations and Camper

From 2018 to 2020 the fair saw exponential growth and this fourth edition is preparing to answer the ever-growing demand. It is a starting point for those who want to see the hidden wonders of the Italian regions in a different, slower way, through unique and exclusive experiences closer to nature. There are three macro-sectors within Itinerando: Experiences, including everything that revolves around tourism, from emotions to travel suggestions, Destinations, for those who love to travel slowly, exploring and discovering new places and sensations, and Camper which is dedicated to those who love camping.

Experiences with art, history, food and wine tours

The newest sector Experiences offers new ways of traveling focussed on ecotourism itineraries; for example discovering Italy’s parks or tours dedicated to history, art, food and wine. These can be done on foot or by bike. In fact, there will be particular areas dedicated to this kind of slow-walking tourism, while another area will be reserved for biking, with a wide range of cycle routes and itineraries.

Destinations and unique attractions

The Destinations sector offers evocative routes through unusual destinations and unique attractions, with the contribution of many different Italian regions.
