Look you have to be realistic,
you cannot "preserve" an alive city like Athens, whereas Pompeii you can...
the same way, how much of Venice you can preserve before it becomes a dead town??..most of Venice inhabitants (the few that are left over) would rather have their municipality spend their money on the welfare of the present city
this is not to say that when planning you should disregard cultural heritage but rather try to find ways to yes incorporate it to reality while not destroying it for the future
