We visited in July, so after 2 days of walking around the streets and canals of Venice, all sweaty, we were ready to take a refreshing dip in the ocean. Hotel staff in Venice recommended this beach, so we took the water taxi and voila, what a pleasant surprise. Personally, I didn't expect much, but it was much nicer than... More

After a few days of city living we were ready for a change of pace, so caught a water bus to the Lido. We hired bikes and cycled round the whole island (about 20 miles) in two hours with a couple of short stops. The island is flat and there are cycle paths, so you certainly do not need to... More

Get off the Vaporetto. Walk the little town. Rent a bike and ride out as far as you can, passing the hotel where they filmed Death In Venice (to be made into a boutique hotels and lush condos but somehow hasn't gotten it together yet) and go by the still spectacular Excelsior. Excellent restaurant out at the end to bike... More

A short walk east from the crowded St Marks area was well worth it to see a quieter more "normal"" part of Venice. We walked along the scenic waterfront and enjoyed the local parks and scenery. There were no shops and only a local café - the Vincent Bar, where we had lunch with the locals.

We jumped on the Vaparedo right off of St. Mark's square and took a ride over to Lido where the beach is located. It was a great feeling to get away from the regular tourist packed areas and relax at the beach by a completely different ocean than what I'm used to. My GF and I spent some great quality... More

We travelled to Lido by vaporetta and thoroughly enjoyed the journey. The island in March is quite sleepy and definitely has the feel of an out of season holiday resort. The beach was not entirely rubbish free and the restaurants did not seem worth visiting.

We stayed on the lido and it is a perfect base to visit venice. We stayed at the grande ausonia and hungaria. Close to restaurants, close to the vaporetto stop and only 15 minutes to san marco. Would not stay anywhere else.

We were perhaps not properly prepared for the cars,buses and general feel of any seaside town anywhere. Could not find anywhere really nice to eat, and left quite soon . Good to have seen it, but if you have only limited time, certainly not a priority!

My review is based on my short evening visit to Lido. We were very surprised (positively) once we've reached Lido. Not far away from Venice main tourist attractions looks like entered into very different world. Lido - Few nice restaurants, beach, shops and nice local people. It's really worth to spend few hours of your time in Venice here. This... More
