Loved the old mosaics pointing the way on the streets of Venice, although in the future they may be pointing to the exit for tourists.
Having enjoyed a week touring the old streets I feel a bit bad after reading the New Yorkers’ article on how much misery we bring to people on our travels.
I can’t help but wonder what happens if you suddenly turn away tourists, especially when you’re relying on them paying 100 euros for a half hour gondola ride. Don’t forget the 30 second photo opportunity with two women in Disney dresses for 20 euros!
I’m also curious as to where the people that complain about tourists take their own holidays without they themselves becoming tourists?
Anyhow Venice is a great place and if you haven’t you should visit before you’re locked out!
I should really have written down the location of these photos or get a new camera with GPS. Below was walking away from the Jewish ghetto which was surprisingly empty of tourists and had a nice little photography exhibition.
This one below is from Doge’s Palace, it’s all starting to come back to me now.
