Dolce Vita Incentives may be a top player in destination management, but we know we don’t have time to sit around and brag. We’ve been busy, opening up new areas, making our website mobile friendly and adding multiple languages for ease of use.
In the midst of beautiful chestnut woods, a small Italian village of less than 11,000 people holds the history of centuries. All it’s history and more are written on the streets of the village, but what draws most of the 200,000 visitors a year are its waters. Popes, heads of state, princes and paupers have come to Fiuggi to drink its mineral waters, famed for healing properties.
Today, the village of Fiuggi is an eclectic mix of ancient and modern. Intricate brick walkways merge with concrete sidewalks. New hotels mix with small palaces. Lifelike statuary, beautiful parks and enchanting walking routes blend with modern spas, well-maintained golf courses, and delightful restaurants.
An amazing 5-star hotel resides in Fiuggi, providing an excellent location for large events. With a variety of room sizes, there are many opportunities to hold smaller, select meetings and team building activities. Along with the 5-star hotel, there are numerous 4-star hotels, so Fiuggi is extremely flexible in size.
St. Benedict’s Monastery
A visit to Anagni, City of Popes, is a must-do. Many Ancient Roman leaders and four popes made their homes here, and the Anagni Cathedral stands as one of the most beautiful examples of medieval architecture in Italy.
Visiting Subiaco and the Monastery of St. Benedict is taking a step into history. Visitors walk through the same caves, gardens and cloisters as the ancient saints and medieval monks.
There are also many opportunities for light treks throughout the regions, numerous high quality restaurants, and wine tasting in local vineyards. The views, atmosphere and history help make Fiuggi one of Italy’s hidden gems.

This game can be organized outdoors or indoors.
Aim of the game:
To construct, in the least amount of time possible a 1960s Fiat 500 model. The car will have to work and this will be proven on a “racetrack”.
Each team will be given:
Each team can use up to 3 “Pit stop” cards to interrupt the progress of a rival team. The team against which the card is used will have to stop building the car and perform a mission. Once the cars have been built a “race” with the participants actually “driving” the car (Flinstone style) can be organized.
