One big event, many destinations

The event includes not just Milan, but all the surrounding beauty. Thus, Explora was created to promote tourism in a strategic and innovative fashion. This organisation serves the businesses and local areas that revolve around planet Expo 2015.

The Expo of Milano is finally here and for six months the world will watch us very closely. Eight million foreign tourists are expected to arrive, in addition to fourteen million Italian visitors. These numbers have never been seen before at previous Expos. These tourists are cultured and prepared, and they perfectly embody the tendencies of the contemporary cosmopolitan traveller. It is good to note that these tourists desire perfect services, original ideas and personalised solutions. Explora was designed to satisfy these requests and is the first Destination Management Organization created to develop tourism for destinations of Expo 2015 from Milan to Lombardy and Piedmont. Created to take advantage of all the opportunities offered by Expo Milano 2015, Explora is an instrument serving the businesses and local areas that revolve around planet Expo.
Explora has a precise task: to help tourist operators offer adequate services to millions of passing visitors. For this reason it was created as a guide, or better yet, an authentic “Welcome” manual in digital format which contains detailed programmes for 19 strategic countries, who have already demonstrated a remarkable interest in Italy’s biggest event of 2015 by purchasing over seven million tickets. From Australia to China, Brazil to the United Arab Emirates, Japan to India, Russia to Canada and the United States, and let’s not forget the main European nations. The times of standard services are over. Tourists arriving at Expo will be informed, innovative, impatient, hedonistic, and looking for experiences that go beyond the main convention to the surrounding areas. Italy is a country abounding in events and opportunities and every traveller would like to experience them. One of the resources that Explora makes available to tourists is a multilingual portal called: wonderfulexpo2015. The site is a brilliant and quick programme, which allows you to single out the most suitable destination in just a few clicks including: city sites, art, nature, fun and good food. With this portal, the best of the best is highlighted not only for Milan, but includes all the nearby landscapes, cultural sites, pastimes, and delicacies that represent the best that Lombardy and Piedmont have to offer. Among all the options available, the Grand Hotel Majestic has, of course, made the list. This authentic oasis of charm on the waters of Lago Maggiore has put together special offers just for Expo 2015. By using the portal, tourists not only can get a clearer idea of the marvellous sites situated around the Milan area, they can also plan an entirely personalised itinerary and directly reserve their hotel of preference. All suggestions have been selected with care and are categorised according to precise criteria. From the welcome page you can locate trip suggestions for the whole family. You can find everything that makes Italy a unique and extraordinary country. Ample space has been dedicated to Lago Maggiore, given that the area is considered one of the areas of greater interest for its cultural richness, landscapes and pastimes within close vicinity to the Expo. For the occasion, the Grand Hotel Majestic has created special deals dedicated to Expo visitors. These include exclusive visits to the Borromean Islands, food tours and the opportunity to experience a dreamy stay in one of the most charming and prestigious hotels not only in Italy, but in the entire continent.
