How can Russia attract tourists?

Venice introduces advance booking system and entrance fee

Venice introduces a pre-booking system (entrance ticket) for visiting the city for tourists. Entrance to the city will be paid. The number of tickets (for visiting the city) may be limited. The cost of admission can be up to 10 euros.

According to Mayor Luigi Brugnaro, this step is aimed at tracking the number of visitors, managing the flow of tourists and making the city “more comfortable for life” (“... not to make money”).

Search for the best airlines and flights at competitive prices

What is the cheapest airline to travel in the US? It is hardly possible to give an objective, in all cases an exact answer to this question. Prices of flights vary, vary on different days. The same airline may offer flights at different prices on the same route. Flight conditions (comfort, baggage rules) can vary greatly from one airline to another.

The Internet gives us a very convenient service for comparing the prices of flights. We can find the best deal for the route we need and the dates we need.
