If you are in Europe, Venice is a must-visit, but only if you have time at your hands. "Tourist buses keep unloading visitors right in high-traffic sites. Most of them are here just to spend a few hours in the city. How's is that possible? Real Venice lies in those secluded squares, quiet alleyways, and or those ancient bridges across the canals. You can't even feel Venice in this short a time, let alone explore the city! Not even a day tour but a hassle for them and us!", a local said.
The ripples and air pollution caused by the huge cruise ships sailing right into the city lagoons during peak tourist season continue to damage the Renaissance building. With rising sea levels, Venice streets getting flooded is another threat. And for these reasons, the local authorities might bring in new rules to curb the uncontrolled number of tourists visiting Venice every year.
Bottom-line is to take your time to explore Venice. Interact with locals, don't just visit what internet tells you. And most importantly, be a responsible traveller.
