We used the Lido as a holiday base this year as a quieter and less expensive alternative to the city itself. The beaches are long, sandy, relatively uncrowded and safe and because the lido is rarely more than a few hundred metres wide, you’re never very far from it. The north side (near to the ferry terminals) is more populated... More

Lido is a very nice contrast to Venice. I visited during the Venice Film Festival and even with the film crowd, it was much more relaxed than Venice. There is a nice public beach and many great cafes. It is easy to get to by Vaporetto. If you are only making a short trip to Venice, I probably would not... More

What a surprise, a great public beach and only a few water bus stops from San Marco, well worth a visit and bring you gear, the sea is warm and clean, there is a testing information board before you enter the beach showing the cleanliness ratings and test results

The beach on Lido and nice, and the main road is nice to walk along, since trees provide a good amount of shade. Not much else to do though.

Much quieter than Venice. There are buses, cars and bikes... hundreds of them parked near the vaporetto station. :) It has a nice long beach, quiet streets with buildings that have a little bit of colonial flavour. If one is tired with Venice crowds, even 2 hours in Lido can help you get some air and relaxing atmosphere. They have... More

Picturesque side of Venice, lots of trees and beautiful Villas. Bus service through the island and very frequent boat service to and from different parts of Venice. Great beach (with actual sand, not pebbles as it is common in Europe) I found it by chance as I booked the only reasonably priced hotel in Venice a few days before our... More

After the husstle and bustle of San Marco and the Rialto Bridge,a trip to Lido with its wider avenue,less crowded restaurants and beach is a welcome break. Get a towel, go for a swim and refresh yourself before you head back to the City Centre.

We hired a self drive boat from Le Boat and cruised the Venice Lagoon going as far down as Chioggia which is a marvellous village, on our way back we anchored at St Erasmo and were treated to a spectacular sunset. A dream holiday.

Lido beach, a 10 minute water bus ride from Saint Marco's Square, is a quiet(compared to Venice), relaxing beach. It's not enormous in size nor the water isn't particularly clear or anything but it's a relaxing experience to chill here for an hour or two. The Lido beach is on the right end of several water buses' routes. The beach... More
