TOUR HIGHLIGHT
LEGENDARY LIVES Stand in awe and wonder amid one of mankind’s greatest artistic achievements in the Sistine Chapel. Hear how in 1508, a young Michelangelo was commissioned by Pope Julius II to decorate the chapel’s ceiling – a request not welcomed by the 33-year-old sculptor. Michelangelo’s 4-year project was indeed one of physical pain and psychological distress, while painting from scaffolds high above the sanctuary floor. Nevertheless, he created what is considered the most famous ceiling in the world, depicting the Creation of Adam in striking fresco style.

TOUR HIGHLIGHT
HISTORIC SPOT Locals simply call Piazza San Marco “la piazza.” As paired with the smaller Piazzetta, it forms the social, religious, and political hub of Venice, which Napoleon called “the drawing room of Europe.” St. Mark’s Basilica dominates the square, offering visitors a spectacular view of the great arches, marble embellishments, and the Romanesque carvings of its façade. Also gracing the square is Doge’s Palace – a masterpiece of Venetian Gothic architecture. The enclosed Bridge of Sighs, connecting the palace with the prison, is named for the prisoners breathing in their last view of the Rio di Palazzo on their walk to the prison’s interrogation rooms.

SALVATORE RUSSO

" Anyone can tour Italy, but only a few can tour Italy "Salvatore Style". It includes an infectious smile greeting you each morning with a "buongiorno" and asking the question "Are you ready for the adventure that lies ahead?" Passionate enthusiasm drives his desire to introduce each traveler to the sights, sounds, treasures and cultures surrounding them, always with a playful sense of humor. "Why not?" becomes more than just a question, but a feeling that anything is possible on any given day, a challenge to embrace life and enjoy the ride! Navigating easily around the hustle, bustle and unexpected obstacles is a daunting task that Salvatore undertakes always with a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes. "

SABINA KULENOVIC

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

" I was born in Sarajevo, in a multicultural environment, but grew up and live in Italy. Writers have said: "One life is not enough to discover all the treasures that Italy hides," I'm still working on it, and I take the passengers with me on this extraordinary exploration. We do this through the people we meet, through the language and dialects we listen to, through the traditional food we eat, through the cities, medieval little towns and amazing landscapes that surround our journeys... when we go back home we are not the same, there is so much new to share and talk about!"
