COSME Programme (2014-2020) Call COS-TOUR-2015-3-04-1 SUPPORTING COMPETITIVE AND SUSTAINABLE GROWTH IN THE TOURISM SECTOR
THEME 3 – Enhancing tourism accessibility – improving facilities and services for tourists with special access needs
ALL project aims at creating and promoting a transnational accessible tourist product based on a common European heritage represented by the Lombards who, in their migration from northern to southern Europe, played a major role in the spiritual and cultural development of Europe in its transition between Classicism and the Middle Ages.
Therefore, the project main objective is to develop, in selected sample destinations of Italy and Slovenia (where the Lombards left more evidences of their culture) and with the involvement of local public authorities and SMEs, tourism offers in which accessibility is mainstreamed in all segments of the tourism supply chain.
To reach its objectives the project will develop the following main activities:
The developed itineraries/packages will contribute to the enhancement of tourism quality, sustainability and accessibility and to the increase of SMEs' business opportunities by expanding their services to a large and growing market of potential customers, with positive economic and social impacts. They will represent prototypes / good practices to be reproduced in the future development of other of thematic tourism offers.
