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. For those who are going to make such a voyage for the first time, some advice from our correspondent Fedor Yurin, who has worked as a guide on the routes of the “classic” for a long time, will be useful.
Pisa
To begin with, I want to note that a week-long bus ride, albeit through the most beautiful cities in the world, but in an unfamiliar company and at a fast pace, is quite a hard job. And yet, such inconvenience is more than compensated by the abundance of interesting monuments, the beauty of cities, amazing food and wine – all that the locals unite with the concept of “Bella Italy”.
An eight-day trip usually begins in Rimini, a small resort town on the Adriatic coast, where charter flights Continue reading

TOURIST RECEPTION ORGANIZATION IN ITALY

Anyone who looks at a geographical map that depicts the Apennine Peninsula, which is incomparable in contour and protrudes into the Mediterranean Sea, can easily find Italy by recognizing it by the clear outline of the “boot” profile.

Magic masks of Venice

It is impossible to change fate. But there is a place on Earth where once a year you can CHANGE a lot – face, clothes, habits, desires, gender, age. From a slave to turn into an EMPEROR, from Cinderella to a PRINCESS, from a housewife tortured by children and cares into a seductive COLOMBINA, from a prudent businessman to a carefree HARLEQUIN.

In order to survive all these wonderful TRANSFORMATIONS, you just need to be in VENICE in February. Imagine: you wander along a dark and tangled Venetian street along the coast of a narrow canal. Winter. Night. Fog. It smells like oranges. And, like oranges, the dull and yellow Venetian lanterns glow in the fog. You are far from the center, and the noise of the festive crowd does not reach you.

And suddenly a strange shadow appears on the barely lit surface of the canal, and the whisper of the waves driven by the oar of the gondola breaks the silence. You rush to the nearest bridge – from there it is more convenient to monitor how the ghost gradually takes shape. First, a cloak and a cocked hat loom. Then, gradually, a white mask appears from the darkness, covering his eyes and nose. Below – a piece of black silk, in the folds of which hide his mouth and Continue reading
