ADRISTORICAL LANDS was a project which promoted a new form of sustainable tourism development based on natural and cultural heritage of the Adriatic basin, through the valorisation of remarkable but largely unknown attractions, such as ancient villages, walled towns, historical buildings, etc. The main goal was to strengthen the bond of common origin among Adriatic cities through territorial cooperation, in order to create and put into practice a common cross-border strategy emphasizing local history and heritage, cultural tourism and other factors essential for the economic rebirth of historical centres.

– Marketing plan and communication activities; promotional materials; radio/TV advertising; media relations;
– Researches to highlight the essential elements and resources for thematic touristic products and cross-border itineraries; location of centres with strong tourist appeal (CEVT), part of the Cross-border Tourist Network;
– Data cards containing information about the involved territories, with a section dedicated to the facilities for the disabled; elaboration of a matrix analysis and geo-referencing of the information.

– 20 thematic naturalistic–architectural itineraries and 5 events (theme days, exhibitions, art and craft displays) presenting typical products and highlighting local traditions;
