A city on water with a drainage... Yeh,, right... Tourist complain 'it stinks in Venice'....

A great topic! Indeed, is there a sewage in Venice or does it go directly into the channel? Something not immediately comes to mind, but still very interesting because in the summer when the sun is shining the water in Venice Italy sometimes smells very badly...

I'm told that most sewage goes directly into the canals in Venice without treatment. It is true that it is in seawater. This water is so incredibly salty that it is not polluting or dirty. And you will not notice as a tourist because the canals are flushed out by the tides. 

There are often plenty of people who swim in the calm water at acqua alta in Venice.
