Venice is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world, due to the city being one of the world greatest and most beautiful cities of art as its shown in Venice tourist map. The city of Venice has an average of 50,000 tourists a day (2007 estimate). In 2006, Venice was the world 28th most internationally visited city, with 2.927 million international arrivals that year.
Venice popularity as a major worldwide tourist destination has caused several problems, including the fact that Venice can be very overcrowded at some points of the year. Venice is regarded by some as a tourist trap, and by others as a 'living museum'. Unlike most other places in Western Europe, and the world, Venice has become widely known for its element of elegant decay (see Venice tourist map).
Venice and its mainland are particularly rich of museums and historical buildings of great artistic and cultural importance that attracts tourists from all over the world. With Venice tourist map you can choose among a wide variety of museums, churches, palaces and villas, Venice historic centre, the famous islands of Murano and Burano, the villas along the Brenta river and the beautiful landscapes the Miranese area, and of course less famous islands in Venice Lagoon.
Venice, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy and a major port city, announced last year that it would start minimizing the number of cruise ships that are allowed to enter Venice historic city center as you can see in Venice tourist map. But despite Venice beauty, the city suffers from massive overcrowding, devastating floods, and pollution and other environmental damage from the massive cruise ships that pass through every day.
