“Come here!” Conscious Tourism VS Overtourism

Traveling is my passion. I often speak and write about how useful it is to be a wanderer: to open unprecedented horizons, experience new sensations, touch the history of other lands and get acquainted with the culture of distant peoples. The more we learn, the more complete and meaningful life. However, one cannot fail to voice the other side: the consumer attitude to travel.

Today in the halls of the gallery are thousands of paintings and sculptures, a real national collection from the Renaissance to the present day. Continue reading
