Rising tides in the Adriatic and the press of
tourists and the huge floating hotels that come
in daily and leave a few hours later are
crippling the life out of Venice. The City state
and the tour operators make money, but at
the cost of the residents, who are abandoning
La Serenissima, year on year. The season
starts early, with Carnival, so popular now
that you can hardly move, in St Marks Sq and
the narrow passage-ways to Rialto and
beyond, for the press of people and
party-goers. Then the early cruise ships start
arriving, and continue throughout the summer,
often blocking off the view of one part of
Venice from another. Their passengers
disgorge, flood the souvenir shops and are
back on board for their next meal, having
'done' Venice. I was lucky, having 'discovered'
Carnival early on in its revival, but my next trip
will be in the winter months. It will be wet and cold and possibly miserable, but at
least I'll see Venice again, not a sea of selfie-takers against a backdrop of giant
sea-borne hotels.
