11 ‘touroperadores’ from the United Kingdom visited the Ciutat Esportiva Camilo Cano and Auditori last Saturday, September 22, to see the possibilities of La Nucía as a destination for «sports and cultural school tourism» for the British market. This visit is framed within the «Famtrip», organized by the Agència Valenciana de Turisme of the Generalitat Valenciana and Turespaña, with the collaboration of the Costa Blanca Tourist Board
The objective of this visit was to know the facilities #LaNuciaCiudadDelDeporte and the Auditori de La Nucía, which has become a benchmark both nationally and internationally as «Best European Sport Villa». The British ‘tour operators’ knew first-hand the modern and complete sports facilities, as well as the cultural ones.
These British Tour operators were looking for locations where cultural, sports, leisure activities could be developed … for British school tourism. They were looking for a place like La Nucia, which in addition to a complete sports city had a theater-auditorium, where they could perform and rehearse the «music students».
The tour operators made a complete visit to the 250,000 square meters of the Ciutat Esportiva Camilo Cano, with the idea of offering in their companies the possibility of organizing school sporting events (championships, summer camps, ‘stages’, congresses, cultural activities- sports etc.) in different sports: football, handball, swimming, orienteering, triathlon, cycling, etc. The 11 British ‘tour operators’ were accompanied by Sergio Villalba, Councilor for Sports, during his visit to the Ciutat Esportiva Camilo Cano.
