Touring with Proper Information. Taking Aware Decisions
In times of crisis and doubts, the only things that really count are being rightly informed and take aware decisions based on facts and not on irrational fear. These are the elements everyone should have to choose the next holiday destination.
And that is why it is important to know that "Rome mayor Virginia Raggi and Lazio Region president Nicola Zingaretti have both underlined the fact that there is no Coronavirus emergency in the capital or in the Lazio region.
There have been no cases of locally-transmitted infections of Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, in Rome or the Lazio region. Of the four people treated successfully for Coronavirus in Rome's Spallanzani hospital, two are Chinese and two are Italians who were flown back to Italy from China.
One of the Italians is already better and has been discharged, the other Italian is expected to be discharged in the coming days, while the Chinese couple - the first cases of Coronavirus on Italian soil - are making an excellent recovery and are out of any danger.
In addition, all tests carried out on suspected Coronavirus cases at Rome's Spallanzani hospital have proved negative." (from Wanted in Rome). https://www.wantedinrome.com/news/there-is-no-coronavirus-emergency-in-rome.html
For updated information on the situation in Rome and the Lazio region see Regione Lazio website. The dedicated local (regional) number to call is 800.11.88.00 while the national number is 1500 (health ministry) or the emergency number 112.
Rome Photo Fun Tours has always offered private tours in the least crowded hours.
My policy has always been placing quality over quantity, and that is the reason why Rome Photo Fun Tours has always organized its tours and workshops for a max of four people per tour. Now, the limit has gone down to only two people, unless the guests are members of one family or a small group of friends already traveling together from the same place (max 6).
Paradoxically this very special policy of mine has now become an appropriate and "healthy" approach: I will not put your well-being at risk by giving tours with guests coming from different locations!
Transforming challenges in opportunities It is needless to say that because of the unjustified fear of traveling to Rome, strangely enough "for those planning on coming to Rome this spring - and indeed those living in and around the capital - now is the time to experience the city at its best: crowd-free and full of wonder". https://www.wantedinrome.com/news/why-now-is-a-great-time-to-visit-rome.html
From a photographic point of view, especially considering Rome Photo Fun Tours are always outdoors and never in crowded places, somehow this is indeed a strange kind of "convenient moment" (I am saying it without cynicism but with a crude sense of reality), and it certainly is an opportunity for those looking for taking clean photos of monuments and art and history.
Booking Rome Photo Fun Tours' workshops is a Win Win Considering all of the above, Rome Photo Fun Tours has decided to reach out to their old and new potential clients with new promotional initiatives and communication marketing strategies, including Facebook and Instagram campaigns, and landing on Australian "Your Travel Magazine", issued by CATO (Council of Australian Tour Operators), with a one-page ad and a two-pages Editorial clearly describing why you should book one or multiple Photo Tours with us.
