What is Classic Italy?

Almost all year round various excursion tours to Italy are popular. You can get acquainted with the most interesting Italian cities during the week this winter even for 300 euros.

And Naples is such a city that everyone, as if by agreement, is described as “colorful.” And they speak with restraint about him, because – what if the interlocutor there still liked it? There are no comrades for the taste and color, and for some, linen hung from the windows, tattered walls, streets littered with garbage, and homeless people sleeping near expensive hotels will surely seem like a colorful sight.

Is this what I am writing to? And besides, after a colorful Naples and a 40-minute trip on a speed boat, where some might get sick, you don’t expect much from Ischia. Will not vomit – and thank God! And Continue reading
