Excellent talent although a small exhibit

Free entrance. Beautiful work. If you are not more that 1 -1.5 hrs it might be worth the drive. Only about 30 min from the Venice airport. Great side trip from the airport.

It is great as Jesolo invites some of the best in the business internationally to present their best work and ideas. I have enjoyed this each time on have been there and thoroughly recommend a visit. An interesting form of art.

There were different sand sculptures in different locations in the resort. Very big and detailed all with a theme, good to see.

This was quite close to our private area of beach so at 2 euros it was worth a look. It's not nativity scenes as the themes change year on year. There are photos of previous years sculptures at the end of the exhibition. I haven't seen anything as good as these on previous holidays so I was very impressed with... More

These sand sculptures were OK, but I have seen better free sand sculptures on many different beaches in the Med, this was 2 Euros each to go and view, we were there all of about 5 minutes

This visit is short but very impressive. Cheap entrance. If you are i Lido di Jesolo it is well worth a visit.

Absolutely amazing, I have seen this 3 times on different trips to Jesolo and it is just stunning. The artists are incredible. I would love to see the final day, as apparently all children are invited to go along and decimate the sand sculptures, that would be fun to watch. 2 Euros entry for a spectacular show of incredible work.
