See Venice, before it sinks
Everybody knows that Venice is sinking slowly, but nobody actually knows the exact date it will disappear -- So why wait until you will need scuba diving equipment to see the famous Rialto Bridge or the St. Mark’s Basilica. Just take a plane, bus, boat, cruiser, car or train to get to the fish-shaped island and enjoy the “dolce vita”. But how?
#1: Drink some cappuccino or Spritz (a wine-based cocktail with Aperol, Campari or Select) in one of Venice’s little but charming bars. Be aware that the closer you are to a touristic spot the higher the prices are.
#2: Venice is a labyrinth of narrow streets and some say that you have to get lost in order to find Venice's true heart. So don’t worry! Just keep on walking -- you will always find yellow signs on the wall stating “To St. Marc” or “To Rialto”, and sometimes you will discover some lovely monuments, like for example the spiral staircase of the Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo.#3: Enjoy the panoramic view from St. Mark’s Campanile (or if you prefer a cheaper and less frequented Campanile, go to the San Giorgio Maggiore island and you will have a splendid view too). However, don’t get scared if the water levels rises ("agua alta") in Venice, that’s normal, just put on some rubber boots and benefit from the beautiful reflections on the surface of the water: they are perfect for taking cool pictures of the monuments -- and a picture of you standing in knee-high water is definitely more convincing than a “I survived sinking Venice”-T-Shirt.
