Having explored the great city of central Venice. We thought we would get away from the tourists and the hustle and bustle , and visit one of the islands. It's a water bus ride away taking approx 30 mins. In the month of February, there is not much going on. It has a great stretch of beach, on one side... More

Lido was really a breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of Venice city. It seemed surprisingly empty, even for a month like February. There are good cafes and trattorias in the island so you won't run out of food options. The island is well connected by vaporetto to venice as well as fte. Nove (which is the... More

We stayed in a guest house roughly in the middle of Lido. It was hard to believe the chaos of Venice was just a short boat ride away - everything here was quiet, peaceful, and perhaps more importantly, gave a sense of refinement that allowed us to imagine a time before mass tourism. If you're planning on staying in the... More

Elegant tree lined boulevards and, of course, cars buses and bikes. At the end of the route 1 vaporetto line that travels the Grand Canal. Not much to do off season, it's pretty quiet. A few shops, bars and restaurants open.Good beach area when the sun's shining! A pleasant distraction from tourist laden Venice with a competely different character.

When the cruise ships docks the city of Venice is extremely congested. We just couldn't take the crowds and escaped to Lido for the day and stayed for dinner before returning to our hotel in Venice once we were sure the cruise ship was gone. Drank bellini's at a hotel to the right of the water taxi stop while taking... More

We had a free afternoon on a tour and wanted to sneak a swim in the Adriatic sea. We bought water taxi passes and popped over. The water taxi ride was delightful as it was a warm sunny day. Upon exiting the water bus, we wandrered across and up the main drag to the beach area. There were a few... More

The lido is a unique experience at any time of the year. Reaching it by boat changes the busy atmosphere of Venice into a peaceful and elegant atmosphere of a seaside village. It offers an elegant avenue, the sea, beaches and historic places like the two old hotels, which make the beach a very special attraction. And there is more,... More

My children and I spent a 1/2 day on the island walking around and enjoying the beach. We were there the 1st week in June and the island smelled of jasmine. It was a nice break from the crowds in Venice. It was a perfect way to spend the day. The trip out on the shuttle too was beautiful. Remember... More
