The historic importance of the city of Venice means that it attracts crowds of tourists from all parts of the world. An analysis of the urban disposition and properties of Venice can, unfortunately, show that not everything available can be defined as without flaws. This is particularly true of the vast array of dwellings that are to be found in the principal districts or sestieri.
Recent investigations have demonstrated a notable fall in the quality of life, above all in the historic center. On the one hand the influx of tourists and pedestrians populate the busiest roads in the search for souvenirs or memorable photographs. On the other, the residents are thus obliged to move elsewhere, given the high costs and the logistical difficulties that discourage them from acquiring a property in the heart of Venice.
