Only a 20 minute lasting boat ride helps you to flee from crowded, loud and hectic venice city center. What you get: great, clean beaches, restaurants which are more affordable, and a nice calm atmosphere.

We had an amazing time walking around Lido, and eating in the beautiful Cafes along the main Street. Cappuccinos, pizza, etc. Great little shops, very relaxing.

Great day out for us, lots of things to explore and shops were plenty and not very expensive for a tourist resort.

The island is a sandbar on the Adriatic Sea. Swimming and restaurants on the water. Home of the Venice International Film Festival.

Pretty with tree lined road on the walk to the Free Beach. But to sit in shade, we had to pay 27 euros for one umbrella and two basic loungers. We found a great outdoor restaurant which was lovely, with tropical plants, and good value.

It was nice to take the #1 ferry to Lido for part of the day. To come out to see wider streets and less people was a good break from Venice. Getting off the ferry it was straight up the street to the beach. We...More

We wanted to visit the beach one day so got the vaporetto to Lido €7.50 per person each way. It's easy to navigate to Lido, just look at the vaporetto schedules. Our host recommended that we didn't go to the traditional tourist beach which is...More

Yes, most hotels can sell you tickets for the private beaches. Cost €12 a day for toilets, shower and changing and of course the bed and umbrella. There is a public beach with the same facilities at €18 a day.

Hi, you will need to take a water bus as the Lido is a different island. When you get to the Lido you then have a lovely ten or fifteen minute walk down the main street to the beach at the other end. Do take the time to have... More
