Far too big, far too many people in one hit flooding the poor tiny city, and not enough revenue for the locals to be worth the destruction…
Couldn’t agree more. I wonder how many tourist dollars go to the cruise company rather than being spent in Venice especially with cruise ships offering organised land tours.
And packed lunches
I agree, the cruise ship does spoil it a bit….
It does spoil the view and even though we stood on a bridge watching it pass, I would rather watch the gondolas and the birds.
It would have been a wonderful shot without this big boat. Did you go on a gondola while in Venice ?
Thankfully I did manage to get some nice shots without the cruise ship 🙂 Yes, we went on a gondola and even though it is considered to be a very tourist thing to do, the different perspective you get is well worth it and I would love the opportunity to do it again in the quieter canals.
We are going Venice in a few weeks but we are still unsure about the Gondola tour. Do you have a good tip for a good tour (not too overpriced ?)
We booked ours through Viator and did a combined afternoon walking tour and gondola ride. Cheaper but shorter, all up the walking tour and gondola ride was about 2-3 hours. The sun was setting as we started the gondola ride which made it hard for taking lots of photos, but very pretty and romantic.
Oh I will have a look ! thanks
