Article "Vanishing Venice: A City Swamped by a Sea of Tourists" published in International herald tribune during the 2006 EAJRS Annual Conference, which I mentioned to some of the participants, is also found at URL Just for your information.



I took some time to visit Rialto/San Marco Saturday afternoon. Not a very good idea, as it was almost unbearably crowded, in contrast to the area we had the conference in. Venice is a great city, let's hope it remains a real city.
