It shouldn't come as a
surprise that Venice—the capital of Italy's Veneto region—sees a huge
number of tourists every year. So many, in fact, that the city is looking to
restrict visitor access to the bucket list destination. The sight-seeing
experience has become harder for visitors when there are so many day-trippers
taking in the same, crowded landmarks. The only thing more grueling than
being among the 30 million tourists visiting the islands every year may be
living on the islands. To balance out the daily ebb and flow—an
average of 70,000 people visit the location every day—Venice's Mayor Luigi
Brugnaro had the idea of implementing a booking system for travelers
looking to visit the city for one day. Sightseers would need to book
their stay in advance, helping the local government control how many people
are visiting at one time and hopefully improving the experience for all
involved. Pricing and capacity limits for the plan have not yet been
decided. Erika Owen is the Audience Engagement Editor at Travel +
