While you are standing in lines to get into churches and restaurants in Venice, you'd be wise to keep your shirt on. Literally.
The city, driven by tourism czar Augusto Salvadori, has begun to rigorously enforce laws that offend the "public decorum", including a ban against torsonudismo, or going topless. Other crimes include eating picnic lunches, wearing short-shorts, and dangling feet in canals. At least a couple dozen people have gotten the bite this week, mostly around Piazza San Marco.
