A British entrepreneur went viral in 2017 when she decided to do away with the traditional company Christmas dinner and instead flew her employees to Spain for a week to celebrate the holidays in style. There is little question that company Christmas events can get predictable to say the least – if not downright boring. Many small entrepreneurs, however, worry that offering their employees a full holiday abroad might break the bank. This doesn’t have to be the case: if you work with local professionals and budget carefully, you will be able to surprise your team with a unique incentive gift. For instance, why not fly your team to Italy for Christmas? We can help you do it on a budget, making sure your employees enjoy a memorable experience.

Fly to Italy for Christmas: where to go
The first step in planning a memorable Christmas incentive is selecting your destination. Where would you like your team to travel? Italy has plenty to offer: from the timeless treasures of its art cities, like Florence and Venice, to the skiing slopes of the Alpine range. Each region, city, town or village has something unique to offer in terms of art, culture, history, entertainment and – last but by no means least – cuisine. Will you book your stay in a luxury hotel with a spa and a golf course in Tuscany? Or will you look for warmer weather in sunny Sicily? Will you book a visit to Florence’s Uffizi to discover the magnificent Italian Renaissance paintings or a wine-tasting team-building in Piedmont? There’s plenty to do and so many exciting options to explore!
Why you should visit Italy for Christmas
First and foremost, because you will be creating something unique and beautiful for your team: shared memories. Travelling together to a beautiful destination is an experience to be treasured and, even if you don’t engage in any particular team-building activity, it is a form of team-building in and of itself. Travelling together will help your employees bond and feel part of the same group, let their hair down and see each other in a different light. Incentive travel is also acknowledged to be the most powerful motivator in the workplace, even more than financial incentives and bonuses. Italy is the perfect destination: easily reached from most European airports, it offers a wide range of attractions at reasonable prices and enjoys a milder climate than most of the continent (at least in its central and southern regions).
