part of the derby collection, the 5-star hotel claris is a unique hotel perfect for incentive groups and meetings. located within the vedruna palace, a historic building from the late 19th century, the hotel has a total of 124 bedrooms and impressive suites. there’s a strong connection between the hotel and art, with various historical pieces exhibited both in the public spaces and in the bedrooms.

segway tour
the second day of the visit was kicked off with an exciting segway tour of the city, a great activity for groups of up to 50 pax. you’ll start off with a briefing from the instructors before being split into teams of 5 – 6 pax. you’ll kit up and head straight out after a short demonstration. this was a great way to cover a lot of ground in just a couple of hours and can end in a different location to where you start.
