Aqua Alta ("high water") has long been disruptive to the city between October and March. Piazza San Marco is among the most vulnerable spots, with the first documentation a early as 782 AD. The phenomenon related to the tides lasts 3-4 hours and causes limited (!) inconvenience to tourists and residents alike. I had the pleasure of meeting a UK tourist who came especially for the event, as do many from around the world!
