Top best answers to the question «Is venice a dying city»

Historically, Venice has died many times. From the 13th to the 17th century it repeatedly lost much of its population to plague — but every time new people came in and the city survived. Despite wars and setbacks, historical Venice thrived, in fact.

Venice, as a lived-in city, is dying. A population which peaked at 164,000 in 1931 is now hovering at around 60,000. Since about 20 million tourists pour in each year - 55,000 a day - it's a safe bet that most days there are now more tourists than locals in Venice.
