  • The high tide in Venice has peaked at 154cm (5ft), with around 70% of the city centre under water.
    St Mark's Square was blocked off and closed to tourists as it was covered in knee-high water, while shops and hotels were once more submerged.

    Why don’t they text the tourist tourist tax so that way they’ll slow down common and the ones that come will make money and that tax go toward repairs also there needs to be laws to preserve the bloodline of people that are from there never been out of the US but I’ve always like Venice this really breaks my heart. Praying for y’all

    I've been there in summer don't get me wrong it was breath taking but too crowded. I was turned off by the Italian people I went to a cafe the lady who sold me cappuccino was snotty. I wanted to go inside a church but a lady charged me money so I walked away so as the public bathroom but I didn't have a choice. A lady with the mask asked for money when I took pictures beside her. It was a money pit. I was so turned off plus too many tourists from the cruise ships. I didn't like the vibe so this is the karma sorry to say.

    New Orleans is literally built below sea level but invested billions to make a sea wall. I know Venice could do the same but Italy doesn’t want to spend the money. So sad.

    Italian government decided to deepen the waters for cruise ships to enter. Islands are built in front of Venice for industrial development. Jobs, the economy, all this ruins in the long run as it ruins the whole earth and humans are to blame. (In Regensburg locals complain about American tourists using diesel cruise boats, polluting the city).

    The Fact that the government failed to build a protection system to prevent this, wasting money on trying to build a "New" system that was untested and unproven and failed and NOT! going to the Danish to build a system, that they have installed themselves, that works, not trying to "prove we can do it", is proof of the stupid people in charge. The Danish have been controlling floods for years. Get a proven system and people that know what they doing, stop letting idiots waste money

    Who would have thought building a city in the middle of a tidal marsh lagoon, supporting in on wooden stilts, would cause it to flood under its own immense weight.
