Alexa advised me to go to Corsica for this weekend. She asked me to choose between sea, mountain or city. She then she gave me three alternatives lasting from a weekend to 2 weeks. She inquired about how I would like to spend my time between nightlife, sport and relaxation. Finally, the type of destination: simple or sophisticated. A new feature born from the collaboration of Alexa with Lonely Planet, the publishing house of the legendary tourist guides on the entire terraqueo that can be visited. Getting the tips from a tour guide is very intuitive. It will suffice to say “Alexa, where could I go on vacation? “, and then let yourself be guided through the ideal choice, filtering the various options suggested by Amazon’s voice assistant. “This year, thanks to the collaboration with Lonely Planet, Alexa becomes the perfect travel consultant to offer suggestions tailored to users,” said Giacomo CostantiniBusiness Development Manager of Amazon Alexa.
The objective behind this new function is to highlight the best destinations for the summer months, but above all the destinations that are off the radar or give the opportunity to live unusual experiences in the most popular places. “This is the spirit of the project that we developed exclusively with Alexa. Our commitment is to stimulate the curiosity of travelers and push them to seek original and fun experiences everywhere. We do it with our guides, also available in pdf, epub, mobi formats and on lonelyplanetitalia.it, where we tell the journeys through videos, social storytelling, podcasts. Adding Alexa to these tools is an important milestone for us. Our hope is that travelers enjoy listening to them as we enjoyed selecting them “, commented Angelo Pittro, director of Lonely Planet Italy.
