Be As A Local was founded in 2018 in Trieste by Dag Harald Johannessen with the support of Wolfgang Cordsen. The business idea was to share the rich offers of Trieste and the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region with visitors from the Nordic Countries.
During his many years of residence in Trieste, Dag has discovered that the Region is very little known in Northern Europe.
As a Norwegian, he knows well what Nordic tourists are requesting in terms of quality, services, information, wi-fi, breakfast and beds. And he has established a very profound knowledge of what this Region has to offer, including a comprehensive contact network.
Wolfgang, with more than four decades as a tourism professional, with German roots, is ensuring the professional tourism aspect as the Technical Director and Project Manager. Together, they will let you experience the special activities or places that only a real local would be aware of, in addition to the normal tourist sites and attractions.
There are indeed many activities and characteristic shows that the Region offers, according to the season. Your travelling experience will follow all of them and include the seasonal activities that are on during the period of your holidays with us.
We may propose special, customized tours and events for groups, firms, organizations in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region.
Through our network, we may offer events and tours in most of Italy.
Be As A Local is working with selected tour operators promoting our offers, as well as directly with individuals.
We are present at the main tourism fairs in the Nordic Countries and in Europe.
