Lunch at the Hotel Cipriani in Venice with a personal friend of George Clooney is not your everyday experience but that’s exactly what a group of MTA – Mobile Travel Agent consultants led by Business Development Manager, Jackie Pennock did last week as part of an Italian product update program.
The lunch with Orient Express Italy Regional PR Director, Laura Di Bert who keeps George Clooney’s contact details in her diary was just one of several highlights the group enjoyed while in Italy.
These included a stay at the Dorchester Collection Hotel Principe di Savoia, the Four Seasons Hotel Milano in Milan and the Grand Hotel Tremezzo Palace in Tremezzo while first-class wining and dining venues included Villa d E'ste on Lake Como and Hotel Luna Baglioni, Hotel Cipriani and Hotel Danieli in Venice.
Adding just one final touch of hedonism before arriving home with Emirates, the group stayed at the Raffles Dubai and were also hosted to lunch and an inspection of Dubai’s famous Burj al Arab.
