As of 8th of March 2020, Venice canals are less traffic because of the Coronavirus Outbreak. After China, Italy became mainly virus spreading country around the world. Due to highly outbreak of Coronavirus, Italy government decided to put the country in quarantine mode. In simple word it is known as lockdown. Because of that many travelers are not able to travel around famous Italian cities and also most important thing was Italians had to stay at home and do self-quarantine.
After lockdown, most places were calm and quiet. Less air and voice pollution is very visible during this tough time. Water in Italy canals became transparent and clear because of less human activities. That was a major noticeable thing happened today as a traveler’s perspective. These days are very hard for the Italians. Only thing everyone can be happy about is the wildlife is getting back to the way it was because of less humans.
People have taken some photos and videos of the canals and shared on social media. We can clearly see fish, dolphins and swans in Canals.

Until now, Venice was one of the major tourist hubs of Italy as well as Europe. Canals were so busy every day and full of local and foreign tourists. Venice canals are most famous for Gondola rides. It is a traditional Symbolic ride across the grand canal. Most of the days, people gather to ride and take part of romantic events, Singing and so more events. But now everything changed. Every event is temporally lockdown because of the COVID-19. Yes, it is a very sad story for travelers. But I think this is the best time to reset the earth. Earth is slowly recovering for all of us. It will be soon be back to normal.
Today many Italians increasingly turn on social media because of the lockdown. Posting many photos, videos and sharing clear water and wildlife of the canal. That’s why it became a viral news.
