How many visitors crowd into Venice on the weekends? I’m shocked.

During summer weekends, 150,000 visitors squeeze into Venice. (AP) Not impressed?  Are you yawning at me?  Okay, hot shot. Guess how many people actually live in Venice?  A few hundred thousand?  Wrong. Just 35,820 people live there. (Wikipedia) So that’s why it’s such a pain to find parking there, traffic is hard and the bars get so crowded.
