Venice --Tra la gente
Weaving amongst the millions of tourists that flock to Venice each year are the residents of Venice. Those 50,000 or so people who live, work, and play amongst the six districts or sestieri. Every sestieri has its own distinctive offering. Something a little different and distinctive wherever you wander.
With the rise of tourism in the early 20th century Venice’s resident population declined sharply. With most buildings being high maintenance that required money to be preserved, many of the locals moved out to the mainland.
