A real revolution for tourists
World's first! ItalyGuides.it in December 2005 was the first website in the world to provide free mp3 audio guide downloads, forever changing the way tourism is done. Today, there are hundreds of websites that offer both free and paid audio guides.
Starting from 2007, audio guides became the focus of an exclusive co-marketing agreement with the prestigious car company, Mercedes-Benz Italy, which led to the download of over 100,000 audio guides for the Italian language in 2007 alone.
