Optimism and patience, waiting for Italians, Austrians, Germans

(ANSA) - UDINE, 12 GIU - Optimism, and patience. According to Lucio Gomiero, manager at PromoTurismo Friuli Venezia Giulia, the tourist operational arm of the Region, these are the keywords for tourism in the region on the occasion of the reopening of the summer season, which occurs with the delay due to the coronavirus containment measures.

Optimism is possible, because the tourist season, which aims to 'conquer' neighboring regions, such as Veneto, Lombardy, Emilia Romagna, has been sealed by the "mouthful of fresh air" guaranteed by the reopening of the borders with Austria, and Germany.

The Fvg Region shares with these countries a low rate of infection and "high quality" of the health system. Optimism, because a varied tourist offer was designed, ranging from colored bracelets for to the bathers along the coast to wellbeing, the ziplines of Sauris (Udine) on the artificial lake, the 100 digitized bike and trekking routes.

Patience, because the season starts again not only with a certain delay but also at a slower pace, and it will not be possible to aim for the usual large numbers of tourists. "In May tourism was blocked, in June it will resume stuttering, but in July we will play a game that we know how to play," Gomiero said.

Meanwhile, however, events are being organized by cooperating with other cities combining traditional offer with innovation, based on the success of the 'toast of a thousand', a super PromoTurismo event which last May recorded over a thousand people from thirty countries which came together on the web to promote Friulian wines.

Among the 400 invited to a large Trieste event on wine tourism that will take place in October, the Europeans and operators from the Far East confirmed their attendance, but the Americans will not attend the venue this year. Therefore, the possibility of a concomitant event in the United States is being considered.

Gomiero explained the strategy for the summer season, as follows. "Our beaches. We have brought together beach operators and managers to present a unique, integrated offer of the coastline: the golden sand of Lignano, the lagoons of Marano and Grado, the nature reserves, and the cliffs of Duino and Miramare. It will also be a more colorful beach because tourists will be given bracelets to identify who is on the beach, and who is walking, fron a different color every day." What about the mountains? "This area offers a wide choice, ranging from reload to forest therapy, walks in the Tarvisian woods among millenary forests, bike and trekking routes. We have studied more than one hundred digitized routes, and then we will inaugurate a breathtaking zip line in Sauris, on the artificial lake". Furthermore, even if the good result of "Cantine insieme" is not a surprise, the success of visits to the many villages across the region was not expected. "Following July - Gomiero underlined - if there are no new infections, we will be able to face some nice surprises in the following months." Finally, concerning the towns, Gomiero underlined that continuity will be given to all the events, "redesigned by the operators under the covid-free measures and we'll make them more interactive," such as, for example, the online exhibition in Udine for the 250 years since Tiepolo's death.
