When we visited Venice we were unsure about booking our hotel on the Lido, mainly due to access and distance from the centre of Venice. When we did, we were not disappointed - access was easy, a 4 minute water taxi of which we brought 32hr tickets for around 20euro each. This way you can get on and off the... More

The lido has public and private beaches. The public ones are busy but there is plenty of room to pitch up and catch some rays. We went to the Blue Moon public beach where you can hire sun loungers and there is a restaurant if you get hungry. There are lots of people walking around trying to sell sarongs but... More

We had a Great time... More

Public beaches were full of locals and tourists. We still had a good time sitting on the beach though, and it's a simple vaparetto ride from San Marco. The private hotel beaches were basically empty and very serene

Fantastic and a really good base to go out from and explore, Venice, Verona, Lake Garda and many more beautiful places. After venturing out on these fab excursions, time to relax on the beach or around your pool. Drink Strawberry wine and eat fresh cooked food Italian Style. The street at night is a hive of activity and lots going... More

We enjoyed staying on the Lido and walking through the streets. It was interesting to meet up with some of the locals and have a chance to talk to them. Not a whole lot to do, but I'm glad we had the opportunity.

Take the public vaporetto (many go east to the island). This will be worth your time! We visited rather accidentally, but spent a splendid evening there. Walk the main road across from the water-taxi drop off, straight down the Boulevard, to the beach. Not white sand, but fun nonetheless, especially if you have kids. Yes, it's worth it. Beach umbrellas... More

If you're looking for a change of scenery from the other islands (Venice, Murano, Burano, etc.) Lido is the place you should visit. You can spend the day biking around the island or enjoying the nice beach.

If you go to the lido, start off early and make it a full day event and follow on to burano to make it coat effective. It is just a beach and the beach bar is VERY expensive as is the little cart that goes up and down the beach selling cold drinks and ice creams. We really wanted to... More

A friend recommend that I should stay in a hotel away from central venice as I'm not a crowd loving person, the addition of a beach sold the lido to me and here's a few other little reasons why you might consider it. The water bus to venice stops every 20 minutes and takes around 10 minutes to arrive just... More
