In the past most travels entailed pilgrimages to visit sacred places to atone for peoples sins. Today, exaltation is still the purpose of many a travel, not on a religious, but on a cultural level.
There is no place where this is more apparent than Venice. More than 60,000 tourists visit the vanishing city every day.
