Tourists will pay to visit Venice – level 1

07-07-2022 07:00

Venice is a historic town in Italy. More than 5 million tourists visit Venice last year. Over 30,000 people visit it every day.

Most people stay only for a few hours. They don’t feel the atmosphere of Venice. They don’t follow the rules. They swim in the lagoons. They have picnics on monuments.

Local people say that tourists change recently. They don’t want to get to know the town.

Authorities want to change the situation. After January 2023, people will pay to get to the center of Venice. Vendors will also sell less cheap plastic things to tourists. Authorities want local artists to sell their products.

Difficult words: historic (old), atmosphere (the feeling of a place), lagoon (a lake of sea water).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
