Venice at a glance
Because Venice is both unique and uniquely beautiful – there is no other city like it in the world. It is a place that everybody must visit at least once in their lifetime.
A short step from the tourist-thronged Rialto Bridge, the colonnades around the Rialto Market are full of small bars and eateries, and are the perfect early evening hang-out for a spritz (the signature Venetian cocktail of prosecco and a dash of bitter Aperol) and a few cicchetti (Venetian tapas).
You probably didn’t know
The population of the historic city of Venice is in chronic decline and at the Farmacia Morelli in Campo San Bortolomeo a population counter records the downward trend: from a peak of 174,755 people in 1951 in April 2015 it read 56,250.
Suggested reading and viewing
Read The City of Falling Angels (2006), a journalistic portrait of the city by John Berendt; watch Don’t Look Now (1973) – creepy but also hauntingly beautiful.
