"For what it is, what it used to be, or whatever" Venice Tourist Trap Tip by ccmoira

Venice Tourist Traps: 253 reviews and 263 photos

Venice is a tourist trap, ok? I mean, even the Italians I met there talked about it. They said that almost no one lives in Venice anymore, unless they own something that caters to the tourists (food/clothing shops, hostels, hotels, etc.).
But Venice has such an amazing history, especially in the way that it is constructed. It is falling down. It is sinking. But it is still something amazing to see.
