Venice has sunk 9 inches in the last 100 years. Just imagine, 9 inches! Even though officials are trying to stop the sinking, there’s not much to be done. Scientists estimate that in 70 years, Venice will be underwater. Probably, that’s why tourism has jumped dramatically since 2007!
If you are an Italian-cuisine-loving gourmand, you should definitely consider visiting Venice. Its cuisine will please you with its simplicity of dishes and focus on fresh local seasonal ingredients. Go to one of the out-of-the-way restaurants, listen to what the locals order, and order the same thing, that’s a truly amazing experience!
