The incident happened recently near the Rialto where German tourist who was performing a Gondola died, is an event that has shaken us all.
Death is always a point at which to stop and, as well as to share the dramatic moments everything that entails, and to approach the bereaved family, make us reflect on the incredible perennially unstable equilibrium in which pour our city.
An unstable equilibrium, as the same gondola, the city's symbol, most built by its nature, such as Venice, which had its beginnings when the boats still sailing and had no engines, but now must adapt to a reality linked to speed, hit-and-run tourism and at the same time with a fulfilling life, i.e. move goods and supply shops.
So then the Grand Canal it causes congestion of traffic, a traffic alert but unexpected in no one can ever know what can happen.
What needs to be done? Ask for more and more security rules?
Certainly, I personally right now if you asked you a ride in a gondola would do to the canals and channels nasco sti of Venice, for me the most romantic places and suggestive.
But if today was a small gondola, we have to be careful and think about tomorrow, because each day entering and leaving in bacino San Marco of enormous cruise ships too large compared to that for which Venice was created, i.e. small sailing impbarcazioni, at the time of the Serenissima.

The Vogalonga 2013, now at its 39/ma Edition, presented to his departure 1700 boats with 7000 rowers. A true record, although the weather was not happy. One reason more to see that it has become a very important appointment for the Venetians and not only that, being one of the few non-competitive races.
A moment for celebration, aggregation, created to bring out the wave problem in Venice, but that took a particular history and connotation.
Any type of boat is welcome, all ages and sex, a real tribute to Remus, which the Venetians living in a festive atmosphere for the whole family.

Be hoteliers in Venice remains a privilege, because living and offer hospitality in the most beautiful city in the world is always one thing only.
I do not know whether it depends on the general crisis, I do not know if things go hand in hand, but Venice is making life increasingly hoteliers ' difficult and problematic. We say that the golden years are now gone, there was questions about tourism trends and new market strategies because Venice was constantly visited by millions of visitors.
Now, in addition to the general crisis, we also simette the municipality with its "tax", which weighs heavily on the cost of your stay directly on the host, while the proprietor is in fact a duty, inter alia, embarrassing, to ask this additional payment, sometimes unexpected.
And in fact the boss turns into "financial agent", as it gets public money, which is then turned over to the municipality on a quarterly basis. Without any charge, without any gratitude, indeed very savory with fines in the event of errors.
The town with this money is intended to improve the service for tourism, improving the city, public services and of course increase the events in Venice in order to make up for the low season, perhaps, I say, by inventing a biennial in winter, or special event .... and instead? nothing, goes to cover budget holes.
But then, why don't you put the toll at ponte della liberta ' or at the airport and gets them ' directly?
For extra tourists, we reiterate that the cost of tax in Venice and ' variable structure structure, the Old Inn, rooms of Ima category, the city tax is € 2.50 per person per night in high season and EUR 1,25 per person per night in low season.

"Antico Fiore goes social!" is the new motto this season. But what exactly does this mean that an Hotel intensifies its presence in social networks?
The need of voyagers and has become increasingly delicate, 15 years ago, when there was the boom of accommodation in Venice, it was enough to make a sparkling and animated web site and the game was made, the customer was charmed by sequins and reserved.
Then if the reality was different was not a proble for the hotel, because the market was growing and, they said, full of other visitors.
We've seen arise close to us hundreds of structures that have closed because in the end, what counts for a structure is hospitality not a nice website.
Today travellers communicate, write and hold, offer tips and tricks and also read obviusly and inform on the net before they book, because they want what they spend for staying in Venice has the most value.
Here is that it is important for us to keep in touch with our guests, to continue the dialogue that we have established during your stay, in order not to lose sight of, not to feel a little parenthesis of a few days but a lasting experience, which will remain in the memories of a trip.
Facebook is the easiest way to achieve all this, leveraging on words such as "like", "friendship" and "sharing", words that unite, words that cement relationships that you create many kilometers away.
So we invite all those who simply visit our website to sign up to our FACEBOOk page, also because we often offer coupons, we have fun with some games and learn to know each other and stay in touch.
