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

We went here on our last full day in Venice. It was really nice to get away from all the crowds of St Marks Square and the tourist hot spots. It was really quaint and laid back and we really enjoyed a couple of chilled hours on the beach. There are lots of nice little shops, restaurants and cafes where... More

We took the Vaporetto to Lido for the afternoon. We wanted to see, first hand, the setting for the book "Death in Venice." A trip to Lido is a wonderful choice for an afternoon in Venice. It is quiet and laid back, easy to get around (you get off the Vaporetto and walk straight across the island to the beach),... More

A very different island from what we experienced in Venice. A 15 minute boat ride, its a must stop if you enjoy beach. A very nice and beautiful beach, its a place to come and relax and may be take a bath as well.
