ARE THERE RULES OF CONDUCT IN VENICE?

Feb 27, 2019 | Must know

The answer is yes.
Venice is a fragile city. The always growing number of people who walk in its streets (calli) has made necessary the creation of a guideline to be followed in order to maintain the respect toward the city itself and its citizens.
The Municipality has recently launched a campaign called #EnjoyRespectVenezia designed to direct visitors towards the adoption of a responsable behaviour in order to raise awareness of tourist impact.

Here are some of the good rules suggested:

  • Venetian streets are quite narrow. Keep the right side and do not stand in the crossing points and on bridges.
  • Visit the artisans’ workshops and learn about the ancient trades that still exist today in Venice. Choose only original products and do not buy any goods from illegal vendors.
  • Steps of churches, bridges, wells, monuments and banks of streams, canals etc. are not picnic areas. Please use the public gardens for this necessity.
  • Venice is a city of art: it is forbidden to camp, walk about in swimwear, dive and swim.
  • Respect the environment and artistic wealth: do not litter, do not vandalize with graffiti, or padlocks. Do not give food to the pigeons.
