Venice local guide, Private tours in Venice and the Veneto
  • HOW WAS VENICE DURING THE LOCKDOWN?

    Italy had the venture to implement an early and complete Lockdown as a consequence of COVID: from March 8th to May 18th 2020.

    HOW LONG WAS THE ITALIAN LOCKDOWN?

    In total the most strict phase had a duration of 69 days. During that time nobody could move away from home without a substantial reason, such as buying food, or attending a medical visit.

    HOW VENICE LIFE WAS AFFECTED BY THE LOCKDOWN?

    Since in Venice the tourist component is quiet high, during some months the amount of tourists are higher than the residentials. With the total absence of any kind of tourism the city looked even more depopulated than other italian cities during the same period.

    HOW VENICE LOOKED BEFORE AND DURING THE LOCKDOWN?

    • during the Lockdown:

    Calle del Paradiso empty

    Calle del Paradisoin a little alley usually crowded

    Grand Canal empty

    Grand Canal nearby Rialto Bridge usually the most crowded waterspace

    HOW WAS THE VENICE WATER DURING THE LOCKDOWN?

    Even the presence of boats in Venetian canals has been reduced during Lockdown, that’s why there were no more waves around and fish and birds were free to move around undisturbed.

    • before the Lockdown:

    Boats in winter manifestation

    • during the Lockdown:
    No boats during lockdown
