1 Piazzo di Santa Regina, Cito Tanda, Vilòstresa EU002

This medieval church is Piscinadoro’s church until it became the capital.

Image
Cancello di la Sole
Gate of the Sun

Piazza di Cancello di la Sole, Settra, Vilòstresa EU001

Originally a gate in old Piscinadoro’s walls, the Gate of the Sun had been modified and glorified. Corso Norden (Norden Avenue) used to pass through the gate, but the thoroughfare had been wound around the Gate of the Sun instead as a roundabout. Thus, the Gate of the Sun is now considered a public park. There are weekly free concerts in the park, and the annual Kingsville Rock Festival is being held here every July.

The Gate of the Sun is served by Metro Station Cancello di Sole (Gray Line), Tram Stations Opera and Corteso Genera, and Bus Stops #20 and #21.

Occasionally, the opera house holds a King’s Day, where all the shows are free and open to the public, courtesy of the monarch, the main patron of the establishment.

The Royal Nord-Brutlandese Opera also has a semi-formal dress code; visitors and patrons are expected to dress accordingly.
The Royal Nord-Brutlandese Opera is served by Metro Station Cancello di Sole (Gray Line), Tram Station Opera, and Bus Stop #21.


Image
Ossorio di Cedrasco
Ossuary of Cedrasco

Chierco di San Kail, 1 Piazzo di Cedrasco, Valbuona, Vilòstresa EU017

The hamlet of Cedrasco sits on a small potrero (plateau) wedged between the Santa Carolina River and the Biancafiore Ridge. Thus, when space became scarce at the hamlet’s small cemetery, the bones at the cemetery were placed in the vaults, basement, and underneath the Church of Saint Kyle. A local sculptor was hired to arrange the pile of bones; but instead of stacking them neatly, he transformed them into macabre sculptures and works of art.

The Ossuary of Cedrasco is open to visitors Mondays to Fridays, 0900h-1630h.
The Ossuary of Cedrasco is served by the Metro Station Cedrasco (Red Line), and Bus Stop #88.


Image
Biancafiore del Monte
The hamlet of Biancafiore del Monte is built into the mountain at the head of the Biancafiore Ridge, above the hamlet of Monterone. This medieval town used to be a fort, but its defensive purpose gradually gave way to it being a place to live.

The hamlet is served by Metro Station Monterone and Bus Stop #145, though it takes a one-kilometer hike from the bus station to the hamlet’s entrance, and a five-kilometer hike from the subway station.


Image
Reinzòpendecca
The Hanging Hamlet


Located near the head of the Vanadium Valley, the hamlet of Reinzòpendecca is built on top of a nearly isolated hill around which the Vanadium River makes a 325-degree bend. Since the land area available for the town is limited, the inhabitants built tall houses, perilously perched at the edge of the gorge.

The hamlet is served by Metro Station Reinzòpendecca (Purple Line), and Bus Stop #89, which are both located outside the hamlet. The hamlet is accessible from these stations via the stone arch Devil’s Bridge (Ponto di Diavolo) over the Vanadium River. The hamlet is also reachable by car from the Santa Monica neighborhood via the Devil’s Road (Viale di Diavolo); though cars are not permitted inside the hamlet.


Image
L’Abordammino
Boardwalk


The Boardwalk was a seaside promenade built by the then-booming village of Sant’Garzana in 1894. The Boardwalk was at that time the commercial, tourist, and recreation center of the village. The Boardwalk was partially destroyed in the storms of September 1914, and was removed when the Corso Alessandrina (Alessandria Avenue) was extended into the village following its path. However, the City of Kingsville sought to build a replacement, an esplanade, in 1945. Its old name, the Boardwalk, still stuck to the new esplanade.

Today the esplanade, and the Coral Beach, is again the commercial, tourist, and recreation center of the district of Sant’Garzana, home to Kingsville’s embassy district. Located along the esplanade are the historic Astria Hotel, the Fisherman’s Museum, the embassies of Van Luxemburg and Candelaria And Marquez, the famous Ristorante di Riceze di la Mare (Wealth of the Sea Restaurant), and various shops and restaurants.

The Boardwalk is served by Metro Station L’Abordammino (Purple Line) and Bus Stops #500, #501, and #502.

  • June 17: Dío di l’Iru (Heroes’ Day) – this is a local celebration in Kingsville, especially in the borough of Campòllina. It commemorates the six young men and women who lost their lives in the Gardotardo di Montitano (Watchtower of Montitano) on June 17, 1318. The six, who hail from the villages of Montitano and La Castione, were incidentally at the lookout point when the invading Cantabrican army appeared, heading towards the village of Montitano. They sounded the alarms, alerted the townspeople, and tried heroically to stop the advance of the Cantabrican army. This early warning made preparations possible and their fight delayed the army’s arrival until reinforcements from other villages came. This contributed much in the Barrenechean win at the Battle of Montitano (June 18-19, 1318), which stopped the invasion of western Union Island. Today, Heroes’ Day is celebrated with a military parade and a re-enactment of the Battle of Montitano.

This is the most religious of the feasts in the Kingsville area, as Saint Susanna has her devotees who attest that requests and prayers are granted through her intercession.

  • August 27: Feste di Santa Monica (Feast of Saint Monica) – the neighborhood of Santa Monica celebrates the feast day of their patron saint.

The Padania River Parade is the largest, longest and grandest parade in Brutland and Norden!

The parade is a grand procession of water floats down the whole Padania River, from its high icy mountain source, to its mouth at the Blue Sea. The parade traverses the two thousand kilometer length of Brutland and Norden's longest river, passing though eleven grants and more than a hundred communities, within one month of celebration. Along the way, riverside and lakeside communities hold their own varied and exciting events in which visitors and spectators will surely enjoy. No parade is as big and as grand as the Padania River Parade!

Tourist Guide
Location
The Padania River Parade will be held in central and southern Brutland, one of the main provinces of Brutland and Norden. The parade starts at Capotacqua d'Padania, where the Padania glacier melts to form an appreciable stream high up in the mountains of the grant of Montesa. It starts on November 23, 2009, at 9 am with the opening ceremonies.

The first leg/week of the parade covers the upper Padania valley, in the grants of Montesa and Valtistrada. The second leg/week covers the parade's journey through Lake Brutland, the country's biggest lake. Many lakeside communities will be holding their own events in conjunction with the parade. The third leg/week covers the middle Padania valley, from its emergence from Lake Brutland to its confluence with the Tagliamento River at Brione. the fourth leg/week covers the lower Padania Valley. The parade ends on December 20, 2009, at 10 PM, with the closing ceremonies at Pieroboscia, at the mouth of the river.

Transportation
Though Brutland has an excellent public transport system, it may be wise to have your own car or rental car. This is recommended for those who want to move in between events, to follow the parade, or to make a side trips along the way. It is also encouraged for those who are unfamiliar with the transportation system and our road network (map of Brutland and Norden).

Anyone with a valid international driver's lciense or its equivalent can legally drive in Nord-Brutlandese roads, provided they have familiarized themselves with Nord-Brutlandese traffic rules. Traffic in Brutland and Norden drives on the right.

Dear Madam,

According to our sources, VLT automobiles are a fairly common sight in Brutland and Norden, thanks to the establishment of a factory of our company in the United Kingdom. However, it has occurred to us as strange that we have not yet took the time to establish a rental car agency, especially considering the fact that Brutland and Norden is a popular destination for Van Luxemburger tourists. Therefore, we hope to do so now, preferably in major cities and on all commercial airports.

If our application is to be accepted, we would like to make sure that enough vehicles will be available at the launch of our rental agency, in time for the Padania River Parade. Therefore, we have reserved a fleet of approximately 2000 automobiles, consisting of the compact L2 and L3 cars, the somewhat larger L5 and Monteluci Duca, while customers demanding sportivity will be served with either the L4 (in both coupe and convertible bodystyles) or the VLT Roadster. Furthermore, the more demanding customers will be serviced with a small fleet of VLT L6's and L7's, as well as Monteluci Ducareales and Bucintoros.

If the agency also turns out to be popular under domestic customers, we might consider also launching a line of commercial vehicles, available for rent. We hope to make this decision somewhere after the moment our first year results can be evaluated.

Dear Miss Tifferina,

With this letter, I hope to set up a regular service between the airport of Luxembourg-Findel and any of the major Nord-Brutlandese International airports. We hope to be flying our new Monteluci Condor A350 Intercontinental passenger aircraft on this route. Privacy and legroom are fundamental values on the flights performed by the GFG, and thus this 350-seat capacity aircraft will only accomodate 250 seats, in order to improve space and service. As you may realise, this makes our flights costly; 3000 USD for a round trip flight to Brutland and Norden will not be uncommon. This means that we often operate in the executive segment.

Furthermore, with Burtland and Norden being an important tourism destination, we hope to establish a more modestly priced service as well. This cheaper service, called JETVL, will offer services to the customers that are more interested in cheap air travel rather than exclusive VIP transport.

Both services will most likely be visiting at least one Nord-Brutlandese airport at least once per day. During the first week and after the last week of the Padanian River Parade we shall be flying at least twice per day with both services.

Hoping to have sufficiently informed you,

Marc Béierwier,
Manager of Operations,

Greetings!

We at the Brutland and Norden Tourist Bureau are delighted that First Mecian Airways is considering our country as a destination for tourists. Of course, in order to achieve that, we would be more than willing to present you the wonders that our country can offer. At the moment, we are busy compiling the different places and locations tourists might get attracted to. In due time, we hope to release them here for everyone to see.

Thank you so much for your interest!

Greetings!

Because we are expecting a large number of tourists, foreign and domestic, into Brutland for the Padania River Parade, we would of course welcome VLT Rental Services to establish business in our nation. Madame Nina Ventresca-Crognale over at the Brutland and Norden Business Bureau (BNBB) would be very happy to help you in that regard, and hopefully in time for the Padania River Parade.

Madame Crognale had informed us that bureaucratic obstacles in Brutland are much less as compared to in Norden. The BNBB estimates that the time for permit processing and filing of the appropriate paperwork can be finished within a day. Incorporation at the Brute Ministry of Commerce in Brutland City can take as little as three hours, if the rental corporation is a different company. Filing of the necessary permits and registration of the vehicles may take anywhere from one hour to three days, depending on the grant. (BNBB told us that the fastest Brutish grants to issue vehicle registrations are the grants of Trazio and Nicoletano.) License plates can take from three days to a week to arrive by mail.

We encourage you to start building the rental car agencies in the four major international airports listed above, and to the major cities along the parade route such as Padanica, Trascara, Concessa di Rivero, Montova, and Strambinello, so that they are ready once the parade had started.

You can inform us once they agencies are ready so we can add them to the list of rental car agencies tourists can use.

Thank you very much!

Greetings!

Certainly we will welcome the commencement of flights between Van Luxemburg and Brutland and Norden. It would be of benefit to both our countries, by increasing tourism, movement of goods and people, and of course, increased contact between our peoples.

In order to ease the establishment of the regular service, we at the Tourist Bureau have forwarded the letter to the federal Minister for Transportation, with our note of support and endorsement of its urgency.

Thank you very much!

Greetings!

The Brutland and Norden Tourist Bureau had forwarded to us your letter about your intention to commence flights between Van Luxemburg and Brutland and Norden. Like the Tourist Bureau, we certainly welcome this new development.

We have six open international airports:
  • Aeroporto di la Repubblica, Dastamone, grant of Soltera, Norden (Normark). (Code: REP)
  • Suciana-Trefini International Airport, Suciana, grant of Trefini, Norden (Dennland). (Code: STA)
  • Ronvalle Airport, Viledenno, Norden (Dennland). (Code: RAV)
  • King Kyle I International Airport/Aeroporto Internaziona di Rinno Kail I, grant of Tonzivibbia, Union Islands. (Code: KKI)
  • Brutland International Airport, Crebbia, grant of Brutia, Brutland. (Code: BIA)
  • Timberland International Airport/Aeroporto Internaziona di Marchòcchiese, Poole, grant of Timberland, Brutland. (Code: AIM)

For the purposes of the Padania River Parade, since we are expecting the influx of tourists, one domestic airport had been opened to international flights, the Padania Domestic Airport at Pianura d'Odige, grant of Padania, Brutland. There is a first-class private airport in Marigalante, grant of Padania, that could be suitable for your executive-class passengers. We are confident that these airports can handle the additional flights. Since the ministry had been setting long-term goals increasing air transport to and from Brutland and Norden, perhaps some time later we can have or negotiate an air services agreement or an equivalent.

Thank you very much!

We at Chevrolet Motors Canada1 would like to supply you with the rental-only vehicle:
(reprint from our nation's auto magazine/auto website below)
Chevrolet Veretta Clasico
Image

Body type: 4-door sedan (saloon to European readers)
Engines: 2.4/182bhp 4-cylinder, 2.8/256bhp V6 petrol
Trim levels: Base, Sport, Limited

The Veretta Clasico is based on the Chevrolet Veretta sold in several world markets, except its styling is much different - it is influenced by the late 1990s trend for angular styling, and is similar to (but not related) the Buick Regal of 1988-1996, which won awards for its styling, equipment levels and safety equipment.
Equipment levels are high, and all models are built to the highest standards.
This version is not sold to the public, and is exclusive to rental-car firms, for now, anyway.

Engines
Two engines are on offer: a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder with 182bhp and a 2.8-litre V6 with 256bhp. The smaller engine is economical, and great to drive, offering a smooth ride and excellent performance, whilst those looking for a bit more performance will like the 2.8 V6 engine. However, you can't get a diesel option, and the V6 is thirsty, so despite its excellent drive, the 4-cylinder is the best choice.

Equipment
Three versions are available - Base, Sport and Limited. Entry-level Base models have the 2.4-litre/182bhp 4-cylinder and have all the basic equipment you should need. This version gets 17-inch wheelcovers that are similar to those of the Vauxhall Insignia Exclusiv (a model not sold here in Canada1). Sport trim lives up to its name, and gets both engines. It also has alloy wheels as standard, although these are similar to the Buick Allure CXL's. Equipment levels inside are suitably sporting. Limited is the top-line trim-level, with extremely high equipment levels, and it is available only with the 2.8 V6 engine and automatic transmission as standard - unlike Base and Sport no manual versions are available. It is at least $2000CA more than the 2.8 V6 Sport model.

Full review
"Astounding to drive - how long before the public gets one?"

Dear Madam,

We shall start filling in the paperwork immediately, as such that we can initiate operations in Brutland as quickly as possible. Norden may be slower, but will also be filed at the same time. This way, we hope the license plates will be in time for the cars arriving in the port of Colonella di Bruttii in the grant of Plano Verta, where the VLT factory is located. We hope to be able to mount the license plates on the cars as soon as they arrive, and then drive them to their new rental agency office, somewhere in Brutland. After the Padania River Parade, the vehicles will be divided equally between Brutland, Norden and the Union Territories, as we expect a large amount of tourists will be arriving in the Union Territories and will thus also rent a vehicle there.

Our location managers are already preparing suitable office space near the Padania River Parade cities, and will make sure that their organisation will be complete by the end of the week. Their operation may be improvised due to the time constraints we face here, but we expect little problems overall. Therefore, we see no problems regarding the addition of our offices to the list. I have taken the liberty of attaching a list of addresses for these offices to this letter.

Signed,

Dear Mister Ricagliatti,

We are very excited that we are allowed to start services to Brutland and Norden. With our planning departments busy trying to work out the required amount of aircraft and the air routes to be used, we can be fairly certain that we can start services the first week of the Padania River Parade. We also hope to fly both GFG and JETVL aircraft on Padania Domestic during the Parade, and I have notified the planning department that they should take the status of the airport as a domestic location into account, as I suspect shorter runways than usual might be in place at Padania. The same applies to GFG aircraft for Marigalante Private.

Furthermore, I have notified the Van Luxemburger Ministry of Traffic of your intention to sign an air services agreement. They will eventually be responsible for the Van Luxemburger side of things.

My apologies for letting our RP fade out... Would you be interested in continuing it here on these newer boards?
And I hope you don't mind if I assume that two of my airlines (collectively speaking) already fly four times a day to Vilòstresa and daily to the five other cities you listed. :p

Greetings!

We thank you for replying to our short note. We have informed certain travel centres that you were still gathering all the information on the tourist attractions. They were willing to wait for the release of the information. We have seen information about the upcoming Padania River Parade, and we feel that Mecians could really enjoy the celebration. Please try to release the information before 22 November, so that Mecians could fully take part in the celebration.

Please do check out our website - http://www.firstmecianairways.com for information about our services, routes and other information.

Yours Sincerely,

We duly appreciate your interest in the Padania River Parade. However, the Tourist Bureau is not responsible for providing rental cars for tourists or supplying them, the privately-owned companies do. We have forwarded your letter to the rental car companies in our database, such as Rent-a-Car Co. and N&N Co.

Greetings!

We are elated that GFG and JETVL will be able to fly in tourists for the parade. Perhaps your planning department had made reconsiderations about Padania Domestic, but the Ministry would like to inform you that the runways at Padania had recently been lengthened to the standards of international airports, both in its bid to accommodate bigger aircraft and to achieve the status of an international airport. In essence, Padania Domestic has the structure of an international airport but currently only serves domestic flights. Its status as a domestic airport hasn't just been changed.
