After traveling to all the different islands earlier in the day, Lido was the perfect way to end it on a beautiful beach. One of the nicest beaches I've seen.

I really liked Lido. It's a nice island with a good relaxed sort of atmosphere. The beach is nice with plenty of decent facilities. It's only a short water bus ride from Venice. We enjoyed strolling down to the beach and having a look around.

We stayed in Lido and think that we really lucked out choosing to do that. The ambience is very different from the hustle and bustle of Venice Very laid back and relaxing. The beach was long, sandy and clean. But loungers etc very expensive.

Lido Island was such a lovely find, we stayed for several days because it was relaxing and so very lovely to get away from the hectic pace of the cities. We walked the beautiful beach, rented bicycles and explored. We found great restaurants, a wonderful market, cafés... It was May and the weather was perfect and no crowds. The water... More

Lido is a short vaporetto ride from Venice. Just make sure you tag in you tickets or they won't work on the way out. The town and beach are a nice break from the business of central Venice. We accidentally stumbled on the private beach- you can tell the difference as the public beach will be packed.

After a number of busy days with museums and church tours, etc., we were ready for a break. We took the water taxi to Lido and after a brief, 10 minute walk, we were at the beach. There are plenty of nice and reasonably priced private each clubs there. We opted for the public beach. There are lots of roving... More

What a fantastic place. We chose to stay on Lido as you can swim on the beach there. It is the perfect place to retreat too after a big day of sightseeing in Venice. There are restaurants, cafés, gelatos, wine bars and just a lovely place. You get the water taxi from S.Marcos to Lido and it takes about 15... More

We had a great day out on a 12-hour Vaporetto pass - Murano first thing before it got too busy - to the Lido for a picnic lunch and a couple of hours in the sea - all the way back up the Grand Canal past the station and round to St Marks. After the tourist hot spots around the... More

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
