    Two German women were cited and fined a total of 250 euros for sunbathing in bikinis at San Stae in "another sign of urban degradation", the cops said.
    Two Czech tourists were fined 100 euros each, the first for racing through Campiello Selvatico on a bike, and the second for hurtling in front of Palazzo Cavalli on an electric scooter.
