Leave a Comment

Turnstiles have been deployed in Venice in an attempt to limit the massive flows of tourists in its streets, a news report has been able to suggest.

The tourists heading to the Cannaregio district and to the part of the Castello district bordering San Giovanni e Paolo have been allowed to transit through, but the Ponte della Costituzione bridge will have gates to limit numbers.

If crowds are too large, tourist boats cannot dock in front of St. Mark’s Square.

I see nothing wrong” in the turnstiles, Mayor Luigi Brugnaro told ANSA news agency. He said tourists are important guests, but that he had a responsibility for the security of the residents of Venice.

Local paper La Nuova Venezia reported some resistance from shopkeepers and major complaints from tourist boat operators forced to offload passengers in less-than-ideal locations.

Police commander Marco Agostini told the paper he welcomed the experiment as a necessary measure.
