We know, this is not the right time for suitcases, trains and planes, the choice between a hotel or a B&B, but nothing prevents us from "traveling" together, while staying at home.
There are many great little things still to be discovered ... comfortably seated on your sofa.
On this page we will try to report the initiatives that from the buildings and streets of the city have moved ... online. Events that now make us all citizens of the world and tourists at home.
Dear #touristsfromhome, get a seat and enjoy!
