Saltimbanco is Cirque du Soleil’s longest-running touring show and has performed since 1992 to widespread acclaim to sellout audiences in Europe, North and South America, Australia, Japan, and New Zealand for more than 11.5 million enthusiastic fans.
Classic Cirque du Soleil at its best, Saltimbanco is a thrilling and kaleidoscopic celebration of awe-inspiring artistry and agility. With a cast of 50 high-caliber artists hailing from 20 different countries, Saltimbanco features breathtaking acrobatics and unbelievable athleticism during solo spotlights and epic ensembles, from the seemingly impossible balancing, jumping, and spinning during the Chinese poles or the Russian swing, to the gravity-defying bungees and trapeze, the crowd-pleasing juggling and acrobatic bicycle, to the celebrated and very unique clowns. Technical expertise and extravagant design are woven together by uplifting spectacular costumes, amazing lighting, humor, and enchanting music and magic. Full of color, amusement, and amazement, Saltimbanco is a fun show for the whole family to enjoy.
Saltimbanco - from the Italian “saltare in banco,” which literally means “to jump on a bench” - explores the urban experience in all its myriad forms: the people who live there, their idiosyncrasies and likenesses, families and groups, the hustle and bustle of the street, and the towering heights of skyscrapers. A signature show, it is inspired by the urban fabric of the metropolis and its colorful inhabitants. Decidedly baroque in its visual vocabulary, the show’s eclectic cast of characters draws spectators into a fanciful, dreamlike world, an imaginary city where diversity is a cause for hope.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
