Florence Sets Serious Rules for Jersey Shore Cast

The mayor of Florence wants to make sure that the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore respect certain rules in his town.

Matteo Renzi has put together a list of restrictions that will ensure The Situation and Pauly D behave themselves on Italian soil.

Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera has published the guidelines that the infamous Americans must abide by. They include:

-No scenes can be shot in clubs or bars.
-No drinking in public. Cast members may not be taped with drinks in hand while outside.
-Florence must not be promoted as a party city.
-The show must focus on promoting Italy, not Americans in Italy, with an emphasis on culture and good food.
-Producers are prohibited from using any of Florence’s historic buildings for filming.

Whether or not the rules will be honored remains to be seen, but Italian critics have already voiced their outrage at the Americanized Italian stereotypes portrayed in the show.

Despite being clearly unwelcome, the show is set to begin filming in Florence next month.

Pisa Airport is waiting for you.

The largest airport in Tuscany, Pisa Airport is second only to Florence Airport per number of daily flights. The airport in Pisa is continuously adding new services to improve the travel experience of those departing and landing there.

Between 2010 and 2011 there have been some useful improvements that may make your holiday experience in Tuscany and Italy less stressful and efficient.
Firstly, thanks to Air One and Ryanair you will have more destinations and flights available. Ryanair added a new airplain to their fleet in Pisa, with destination Rhodes, Greece. This will make so that with Ryanair you can now reach 78 destinations in Europe and North Africa from Pisa.
Air One will start its operations on July 1st, 2011 with flights to Italian and European cities. The promise is that of keeping low costs while not forgoing all the services that low cost companies have to, such as in airport check in, seat choice, luggage included in the price, and Alitalia frequent flier mileage.
