Detourism, the newsletter for sustainable tourism of the City of Venice

Subscribe to the Venice Office for Sustainable Tourism newsletter to find out the secret Venice

Detourism is the newsletter of the Office for Sustainable Tourism of the City of Venice for curious de-tourists who love detours from usual routes.
Every week we give you some suggestions that you can follow for finding the most original and secret places of the city, beyond the usual postcards, to hear and tell unexpected stories, because Venice is the perfect place to get lost: its character and characters are best stumbled into, not planned.

Venice encourages travellers to become a “detourist" for understanding another Venice. Visiting a show or attending an event, can bring you to an unexpected detour, a pleasant surprise, casual but often as fascinating as your initial goal.
