Questions Asked

Hello everyone.I'm a twenty-something from London and I love Italy. I've only been to Tuscany so far, so my knowledge of everything Italian is quite limited. I hope I can find out some interesting tidbits before I go on my next trip South.

You all had some interesting points. I've never been to Venice, but I'd love to go. So, I did some research to see whether the city will still exist in two years. I only really found this old article. Does anyone else know of any informative articles/videos? and the article did not really mention anything about the cruise ships. I understand that someone on a cruise might want to see Venice when there,but it is pretty short sighted to just get those monster ships into the lagoon

Well said La Dolcevita - don't you find that most of the people who criticise cruising have never cruised (or maybe went on the wrong ship), while most of the people who have cruised absolutely love cruising!  

You know, I don't think it's about hating cruising, but about companies who offer it and people who do it. It might be great to see all the sights and hop on the ship again, but if you're the one who has to deal with the sheer masses coming in everyday you can get right ticked off. Of course, I know that Venice lives off the tourists. I think it's just generally that big crowds can get quite aggravating. In that annoyed state one looks for bad traits and sees every difference or lack of knowledge as flaw.

I can imagine it's going to be a tough job, but worth it in the end. Is the roof of the upper bedroom area  still structurally sound? The support beams seem to be the only thing holding it up. I hope you won't have too much trouble with that. The dresser in the master bedroom and the bed in the first bedroom are so nice. Are you planning on keeping them? The house really has a great floor plan. And the garden is probably going to be magnifiscent, as well. I wish you the best of luck!

AHH don't stop the swifts as their numbers are decreasing due to lack of nest sites. Try a board under the eves?

Is that so? That's so sad. They are one of my favortie kind of birds. Hopefully their numbers can be revived.

  I don't know if this is going to be effective, but I'll still participate. If everyone ignores it because they think it'll never work, then it 's their own fault that nothing happens. ;)
