Our History

The Ventura team can now count on more than 370 collaborators spread over five branches. We have reached the current setup spread out between Milan, Florence, Treviso, Turin and Guardiagrele in 2015, following the acquisition of Seneca's business travel sector and brand.

Between 2003 and 2007, the board of shareholders (Automobile Club d’Italia and BCD Travel) consolidated Ventura's business and set the foundations for the leap towards big objectives, such as the current turnover, amounting to 365 million euros.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
