Tourists who visit the Los Angeles area usually spend at least an hour or two walking along the famed sidewalk. Many times they find their journey violently interrupted by angry people chopping and otherwise attacking one or more the plaques under their feet. The latest is the Donald Trump star.

Remember The Old Slogan: See Venice At Night And Die PDF Print E-mail

Travel expert Rick Steves recently wrote a USA Today article recommending roaming through the beautiful Italian city after dark. Of course, his praise of night time Venice is absolutely correct.

Violent crime against tourists doesn’t happen often in Venice, but phony offers and potential pickpocketing are always nearby. Keep everything in buttoned pockets and handbags looped under arms in major tourist areas, especially while wandering San Marco Square after dark. And when a friendly vendor offers you a genuine Gucci bag at a bargain price, don’t buy the phony product.
