How do you prevent and manage overtourism? On the one hand tourism brings money to the local economy, on the other hand it can be devastating to local population. Why rent out a house/ flat to a local family If you can list it on Airbnb for much more? Or imagine yourself pushing past a huge crowd of people of a guided tour just to get a cup of coffee at your local coffee shop.
It feels a bit hypocritical on my part, as I also want to visit the famous and popular sites, such as Venice or Pisa. But I absolutely hate overcrowded places, and seeing people trying to take yet another ‘creative’ leaning tower of Pisa makes me cringe. We spent a whole 30 minutes in the city of Pisa, it was too frustrating and we couldn’t stay longer. It’s a stunning place, but my nerves couldn’t cope with the huge crowds ( and this was in the winter time ). Am I just a Debby downer, or can anyone else relate?
You guys keep asking me about things to do or see or even experience here in Tuscany, especially when it comes to our gem: Florence.
I am so glad to finally have the proper recommendation to share.
Here I am after the “Medici Family Tour” and I still have those goose bumps because I love History and people who knows it deeply and are able to connect with you and share in a very easy way.
For those who like to get deeply in touch with the Hisotry of Florence’s Art be sure to note down Agata’s page: @guide_me_florence
You’ll love her way to explain about both the big traces of Medici and their nowadays mysterious ones.⚜️
According to @196stamps , "Mediterranean sunsets... best in the world" and we won't argue with a killer sunset like this! #marsamatrouh is a great place for swimming, jet skiing and, of course, # sunset viewing. If you're looking for an adventure, then #MyEgypt is the perfect place for you!
