Where the locals go
If you ever wondered where all the Venetians go in August, this is it. August is quiet time in Venice, Italy. Hollywood types and studio execs do come to town though for the oldest film festival in the world, the Venice Film Festival...
The locals typically boat out of town in August as the temperature climbs to the area known as the Lido. This area is just minutes away but on the ocean. Lovely in this photo taken during May, but since the films screen on the Lido, locals get crowded out during the week the festival is in town.
