Our history

CTE is the acronym of “Centro Territoriale Europeo” in Italian and “Closer To Europe” in English. 

The CTE is a touristic company born in 2017 in Soverato (CZ) as the challenge of a team of experts in European project design and management who started to develop a new idea of tourism bringing internationalization in the South of Italy.
