About our Venice news

Latest news on Venice, Italy, providing comprehensive coverage of tourism, flooding, architecture, events, and other stories related to this iconic UNESCO World Heritage site.

Venice, the capital of the Veneto region in northeastern Italy, is a unique and enchanting city built on a lagoon. Known for its stunning architecture, art, and winding canals navigated by gondolas, Venice attracts millions of visitors each year. The city's main attractions include St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, and the Rialto Bridge.

In recent years, Venice has faced significant challenges due to overtourism and frequent flooding. The city has implemented measures to manage the influx of visitors, such as introducing an entry fee for day-trippers starting in January 2023. Venice is also grappling with the effects of climate change, as rising sea levels and more frequent extreme weather events exacerbate the city's long-standing flooding problems. The MOSE project (Modulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico), a system of flood barriers designed to protect the city, became operational in 2020.

Despite these challenges, Venice remains a vibrant cultural hub, hosting numerous festivals and events throughout the year. The Venice Biennale, one of the world's most prestigious art exhibitions, takes place every two years and features contemporary art from around the globe. The Venice Film Festival, the world's oldest film festival, is held annually on the Lido island. Other notable events include the Carnival of Venice, a two-week celebration famous for its elaborate masks and costumes, and the Festa del Redentore, a traditional festival held in July.

Venice's rich history dates back over 1,500 years when it was founded as a safe haven from invading barbarians. The city grew to become a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, with its merchants dominating trade routes in the Mediterranean and beyond. This prosperity led to the creation of Venice's iconic architecture, including the ornate Byzantine-influenced buildings that line the Grand Canal.

Our NewsNow feed on Venice provides up-to-date information on the city's latest developments, initiatives to preserve its cultural heritage, and efforts to address the pressing issues it faces. By staying informed, readers can better appreciate the complexities and wonders of this timeless city.
