Who can recommend some great lakes to swim in Italy? We will be in Tuscany and Venice this summer. Thank you! :)

Lake Como looks to be about 25 miles from Sorico to Malgrate... the east finger would be a bit longer.

Garda is a bit closer to Venice.

you can swimm here

all are nice lakes not too big and with clean water. The first lake is the closest to Tuscany the other 2 are in the north. The third you can make a nice tour around the monte isola island.
I July in tuscany there are a several OWS races in the see, you can also do one.
