Venice: Scuba Diving
Queen of the Adriatic
Planning a trip to Venice? Don't forget to pack your scuba gear. Tourists packing a sunhat and Italian phrase book for a visit to Venice have been advised to add a snorkel and fins after marine biologists stumbled on a plethora of fish, crustaceans and undersea vegetation swarming to a new sea barrier rising to protect the city. Your luxury vacation in Venice is not complete without scuba diving. Ongoing work to construct artificial reefs and floodgates to keep Venice from turning into a modern-day Atlantis has produced an unlikely side effect: a fast-growing, underwater paradise with 250 species of flora and fauna, rivaling even the most teeming Caribbean dive spots providing a new scuba-diving venue in Venice.
