Theme Based Events Corsica, France: Melting pot of Med to host Tour:

Best for: Activities, events, food: Mixing the cultures of Italy and France yet fiercely Corsican, the French Mediterranean island of Corsica has a furious beauty. It is this epic beauty combined with its challenging topography that make it a spectacular choice to host the historic centenary of the initial stages of the Tour de France. Race organisers wanted the hundredth Tour to start in an enchanting location, and decided Corsica was the place; this will be the first time the race has braved its challenges.

Carinthia, Austria: Serene bargain nestled in Alps: Best for: Activities, family, value for money: With belts tightening across Europe, the Alps are fast becoming the exclusive preserve of the champagne set‌ but lesser mortals will find plenty to love about Carinthia. With ski resorts nestled on every mountain top, Carinthia is best known outside Austria for uncrowded slopes and après-ski where you don't have to take out a second mortgage just to buy a beer. Backing onto Italy and Slovenia, the region dilutes the Austrian efficiency with Mediterranean laissez-faire. So where are the crowds? Check out Carinthia now, while peace and quiet reigns; it won't stay like this forever.

Campania, Italy: Old classic prepares for epic year:

Best for: Culture, family, food: Campania is home to Italy's most sumptuous stretch of coastline (the Amalfi Coast), one of its most mind-blowing and ebullient cities (Naples), the menacing beauty of Mt Vesuvius, and the frozen-in-lava ancient Roman city of Pompeii. This year it is receiving an enormous injection of cash as part of its role in hosting the UN's fourth Universal Forum of Cultures from April to July. Events will include art exhibitions from all five continents, music,

cinema, dance, street artists and theatre, circus acts, food markets and workshops.
