I'm guilty of occasionally calling Venice "Disneyland for Adults." All it takes is one visit during tourist season when you hear more English than Italian and get charged $10 for a cup of coffee to sour your opinion of the city. But, visit Venice during the off season and you really do experience something totally different. A visit I made in February 2005 was fun, uncrowded and inspiring. I think that true spirit of Venice is captured in this video above, which Rob found on Open Culture.
