ENRICHING EXPERIENCES FOR OUR GUESTS AND OUR ENVIRONMENT We believe that a responsible meeting is not only what you experience in the meeting room but also knowing that your hotel respects the destination around it. We’re proud to partner the leaders in geotourism, the National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations. Our ambition is that guests enjoy enriching experiences that reveal what makes a place truly special – its heritage, culture and tradition – and the importance of protecting it. At InterContinental we use a holistic approach to being a responsible business: to work from the grass roots up, recognising each individual hotel team as the experts best placed to use their local knowledge for developing community and environmental initiatives that meet the specific needs of the destination. This Insider Collection gives delegates access to some of these unique experiences, and for those meetings that stay in the meeting room, you can be assured our hotel is working behind the scenes to protect what is special about the place for fellow travellers.

DISCOVER THE TREASURES OF ROME

Rome wasn’t built in a day and nor can all its secrets be discovered in one either. This personal lecture will give you the opportunity to intimately get to know the Campo Marzio District, where our hotel is located. Campo Marzio District is one of the most beautiful of Rome’s 22 districts with its magical and unique places: from the Spanish Steps to Via Condotti and Piazza di Spagna with their exclusive boutiques; the elegant Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina to the neoclassical Piazza del Popolo; Pincio Gardens and their wonderful panoramic terrace to the ancient Ara Pacis with its modern museum designed by the American architect Richard Meier. You can choose to have an in-house or an out-door lecture, after which Campo Marzio District will have no more secrets for you. 1 of 2 Contact us for pricing specific to your group.

LET YOURSELF BE CARRIED AWAY BY ITALIAN BEL CANTO This series of musical lectures with live performances by professional singers will introduce your delegates to the wonderful world of Italian Opera. You will be seduced by the elegance of the Bel Canto, learning to appreciate opera music more deeply and consciously, recognizing differences between the various composers, genres and periods. In Opera you can find the same emotions that we experience in our daily life: jealousy, love, betrayal, friendship, duty, conflict. By identifying ourselves with the characters and the situations they go through, we can recognize in them part of our own being. In that sense, opera can be a means to better get to know our true selves. After a frenetic working day, delegates can forget problems and let the music relax body and mind.

CLEAN UP ‘PINETA OF CASTEL FUSANO’

A day in the Pineta di Castel Fusano is a real corporate teambuilding event that is specifically designed to get close to nature and to promote environmental awareness. This activity takes place in the heart of Pineta di Castel Fusano Wildlife Reserve, a very ancient sanctuary covering 916 hectares, close to the mouth of the River Tiber and to the sea. This unique area, also crossed by an ancient Roman street called Via Severana and built in 198 A.D. by the Emperor Septimius Severus, is rich in wonderful, old domestic pines and holm oaks, typical of Central Italy. The aim is to clean up this amazing place with your team members, learning the ecological characteristics, complexity and biodiversity of the Mediterranean forest and environments.
