Tourism: Venice Re-Opens To Much Smaller Crowds

Before the pandemic, the Italian city of Venice was overrun with tourists – so much so, it was looking for ways to restrict their numbers. Now though, it’s got the opposite problem. Empty streets and waterways, in a city that very much depends on tourism revenue. DW’s Max Zander reports on how Venice is looking to strike the right balance, as it re-opens for business.
