I have written before that I think Venice is broken. Far too many cruise ships and day trippers. The lagoon is overloaded.
Oddly, the same words do not apply to the area around Venice. No one goes there. They might start now that Sergio Cervellin has purchased Catajo Castle and is spending a bundle to renovate it for public visitors.
It is, shall we say, imposing? And it is loaded with fantastic things.
Go for it!
