Vespas, Gelato and all things Italian were celebrated as Qantas Holidays launched their ITALY Brochure in Italian style this week in Sydney.

Agents, suppliers and preferred partners gathered at the Mezzanino Ristorante in Sydney’s Waterloo on Monday night to celebrate the launch of the Qantas Holidays 2018 ITALY Brochure.

Cinzia Burnes, Executive Director of Helloworld Travel and Head of Wholesale and Inbound, welcomed guests to the event, commenting that the region had a special place in her Italian heart and sharing that she used to ride her Vespa around the streets of her hometown of Rome.

With an impressive spread of gourmet Italian food keeping everyone busy, the night was topped off with prize giveaways including tickets to La Traviata, tours in Tuscany and Puglia and an incredible prize package of return flights with Emirates from Sydney to Rome for two with accommodation in Florence and a Sorrentine Peninsula tour.

This fantastic prize was won by the much-envied Senia Gupte from Helloworld Travel Hornsby.

A Gelato Bar was the icing on the cake (or icing on the tiramisu) to wrap up the night with all guests heading off with goodie-bags of Panettone, Amaretti and Italian chocolates – and dreams of Italy no doubt… YUM!
