ARE THERE RULES OF CONDUCT IN VENICE?
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.
