I was taught that the oldest by far was Al-Qarawiyyin University in Fas, Morocco, which was founded by Fatima Al-Fihri in 859. According to Wikipedia it is the oldest degree-awarding academic institution. The University of Bologna is the oldest European-style university, as clarified by this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_oldest_universities_in_continuous_operation. So I believe using the term 'oldest' here is a bit unfair.

I'm not sure but I remember reading in the news that Venice did actually put a limit to the number of tourists, at least in some areas

Just a grammar note regarding that clue: it should either be 'has considered' or 'has been considering' capping the number of tourists.
