  • Description: The project focuses on tourism promotion in the cross-border area by defining tourist packages that are suitable to the elderly people (and other age groups). In order to diversify the contents of tourist packages, there are two main offers: spas and cultural tourism. In this sense the project aims at developing and promoting tourism that is centred on health, socialising, recreational activities and culture. The actions envisaged include the publication of bilingual information and promotional material, the presentation - at targeted meetings - of spas present in the cross-border area, the organisation of trips to familiarize with the area, the promotion of wellness and recreational trips in the various spas, and all the related activities. A website will also be set up to present tourist products and packages for the elderly, to foster socialising and familiarity across the two neighbouring cultures. The project also aims at disseminating medical and health prevention, so as to improve the quality of life of the elderly, while contributing to the growth of the local economy.
