Wild Swimming Picture of the Week: Venice

It is against the law to swim in the canals of Venice, however water lovers can choose from a number of nearby swimming locations. The Lido teems with swimmers and sunbathers throughout the summer months, but for those looking for a quieter swim catch a water bus to the island of Saint Erasmo (service 13 or 18).
