Very easy to get to via vaporetto and the town is a bit quaint but quite "modern" and appears quite wealthy. Walk straight through the town to the beach where you can swim and enjoy a great light meal at the beach café. The scenery from the beach is quite disappointing but worth a visit at least once.

Use Lido as a base and visit Venice from this quiet place. Lovely beaches and taxis nearby. Everything you need for family and loved ones.

Paddled and built sand castles as the sun went down, the water wasn't too cold. Sand was dark and soft, beach reasonably clean. Saw paragliders and water planes landing. A nice 10-15 minute walk from lido vaporetto to the free beach. Not sure when the viewing tower is open? We have been twice and it was closed.

If you like to get away from the crowd of San Marcos, this is a nice place to walk around and take in Venice. It was a nice stroll, but you won't find all the hustle and bustle.

This is less crowded than most sites in Venice. A good time to avoid the crowd and see the architecture and walk around at a time when Venice was at its glory.

After several days of looking at the magnificent building, art and beauty of Venice you might need a mini break to reality. This reality is the Lido; it has cars, the main drag, a beach, and what feels to be a lot more room than Venice. A complete change but only a water bus ride away. The Lido beach is... More

If you're looking for a VERY quiet holiday, this is for you! Gorgeous island but nothing to do !! Mixed feelings about it .... Nice and relaxing after 4 days in busy Venice, but after 2 days here we were bored 😫 great for retired couples .... With plenty of books to read. Very safe and crime free, but virtually... More

I got on the vaporetto from Roma the nearest stop to the bus station. The vaporetto is quieter usually here and got a seat at the front outside. You then will sail right up the Grand Canal with spectacular views. Last stop is "Lido". Walk straight out the station and head straight ahead down Santa Maria Elisabette. The free public... More

This island is easily accessible on water taxi or vaporetto. The island is much less crowded and has lots of charm. Many restaurants, cafes and boutique shops line the min street. There are plenty of souvenir shops and the prices are far less than the Rialto or St Mark's Square area. beautiful beach with fun shops.
