Just last week I noticed that the walkways (passerelle) had been brought out of storage and placed strategically around the city, in anticipation of the first Acqua Alta (high water) of the season.
I just checked the weather forecast for tomorrow and guess what!! Tonight around 12:30 am and again tomorrow around 12:30 pm we're going to get to use those platforms. Although the forecast is only predicting 105 cm in Venice which means it will only be in the lower areas of the city, it will certainly be in St. Mark's square and Rialto. Get the boots out everyone! Happy Acqua Alta season to all!
