Extremely popular with both foreign tourists and locals, the seaside town of Jesolo, in the Veneto region, attracts an ever-growing number of beach-loving Russians, who represent 6.8 percent of tourists to the area every summer. Russian tour operators recently made a very special inquiry: is there a nude beach in Jesolo? ‘We'd like to know if there is a section beach in Jesolo for nudists,' tour operators asked the Jesolo Tourism Consortium at a recent conference.
