Criminality in Venice appears to be the lowest of Italy.

When I visited the prison the reason became clear; no bad boy is willing to take the risk being imprisoned in Venice.

The roof cells of the Piombi (lead) where Casanova was emprisonned until he escaped through the roof can only be visited with the "secret itinerary" guided tour.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
