Financial police!?[edit]

What the heck!!! "Italian law requires customers to retain receipts and you could (in theory) be stopped by the Financial Police and asked to show receipts for your purchases." Seriously? Show me ONE case where it happened. I've heard a lot of bad things about Venice, but I've NEVER heard of anyone being stopped by Financial Police! What SHOULD be said is a warning not to buy counterfeit products. Buying a Gucci purse from a street "merchant" for 30 euro may seem luring but if you're caught in the act the Italian law goes into action - the BUYER of counterfeit goods is punished not the seller. And, as they say in Italy, where there is "abuso", there is "penale". Le Grand Bleu (talk) 16:34, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your edit. Please add the warning. Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:13, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Printing in Venice[edit]

Hi, this is to argue about this revert. Places with poster printing facilities in Venice were surprisingly hard to find (especially with no knowledge of Italian), it took us several hours and multiple attempts, so I thought it worthwhile to include the information here. The reason why I'm listing poster printing in a travel guide is because this is useful for professional trips to conferences. If you think this is useful, please feel free to add it back. --A3nm (talk) 01:11, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

That seems like a good argument, but I'm unsure, and especially about listing only one. Let's see what other people say. Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:54, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Sleeper trains to Venice[edit]

I know some of them still exist, but which? It would also be really nice to have links to the railroad(s) running them. Hobbitschuster (talk) 15:40, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

The redlinks in "orientation"[edit]

Are they important? If not, can we get rid of them? If yes, why are they red? If this wants to be featured, we should probably do something there... Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:13, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

I've created a stub article for Mazzorbo. Nothing by way of listings yet. Ground Zero (talk) 12:59, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
I've expanded that article, and created one for Sant'Erasmo. Ground Zero (talk) 00:55, 6 June 2018 (UTC)


While Venice is small by land area and not enormous by population, it is filled by interesting venues and historical buildings. The city has six sestiere (boroughs). /Yvwv (talk) 10:16, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Aaaaaaaaannnnd, that proposal went nowhere, sigh. Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:38, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Metropolitan Venice[edit]

The Metropolitan Venice article contains very little information beyond the trivial. It needs to be expanded. /Yvwv (talk) 17:39, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Does it need to be expanded or merged somewhere? Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:41, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
