Venice 24/7

Series 1 - 3. City Fit for a Pope

About this programme

3/6. Officials prepare anxiously for the city's first papal visit in a quarter of a century, and work carefully to ensure the already uneasy relationship between Venice and the Vatican is not aggravated further. Security is tightened across the city, specially selected papal gondoliers are prepared, and frogmen survey the waterways for potential hazards - but police attempts to close the Grand Canal upset some residents.
