It is said that Venice is the most visited city in the World. It has 118 islands connected by 400 bridges and 150 canals. Enough therefore to define Venice as the most interesting city in the world. .
We arrived at Venice from Switzerland by bus and to get to our hotel we had to take a water bus (vaporetto) There is no road transport. You take a boat or a water bus or walk over the bridges from one island to another.
Sadly the water in the canals is not clean as it gets mixed with industrial waste as also human waste. That is one reason why we did not take that Gondola ride. Suffice it to say however there is enough there to please a tourist. We were happy.
Reports have it that Venice is slowly sinking as water from the sea gets in each year. After all Venice is built in water.
Did you know Venice is slowly sinking because of rising sea levels
nice city, hope to be there one day.
If you join a package tour of Europe they will include Venice in that package.
Although Venice is close to my home country, I have never visited them. From the storytelling, this place must be interesting…
It is worth visiting There are interesting sights you will not miss.
It is very sad for Venice. I have plans to visit it one day.
It is worth visiting You will get back with great memories.
Little sad that the famed waterways in Venice are not that clean.
I am not sure if they can help it as Venice is floating in water as it is. .
I am so glad I could do it. We had joined a package Europe tour
I am fascinated by Venice and it is in my bucket list. However, a trip would be very expensive so it is not a reality for now.
You are justified in feeling so. It is worth visiting
Italy was once our neighbor. Before the breakup of Yugoslavia.
We often went to Trieste for shopping and Venice is a beautiful place.
We visited Venice, Pisa and Rome and of all these places I liked Venice.
I think the local health administration should take notice of that dirt water
It is years since the water is in that condition and I am wondering if they can do anything about it. Even the Amsterdam Canal was dirty.
This is very sad for Venice, I have read the stories.
It is built on silt and such stuff and it is bound to sink one day.
Venice is on one of my too visit countries. I guess in a couple of years we’ll (hubs and I )be free to tour the world
We took a package tour of Europe. What would be your choice. On your own or on a conducted tour?
I would love to visit this place one day. Nice photo!
