My wife and I stayed a few nights on Pallestrina. It doesn’t take long before you notice it’s been largely untouched by time. Most businesses close in the afternoon so families can enjoy a daily lunch together. Around sunset the town starts to buzz with...More

A short ferry trip from Chioggia, this a real place where people actually live, unlike Venice these days. We went on a quiet day and found excellent fish, pretty houses, working fishing harbours and a great beach with clear warm water.

Pellestrina is just an hour (by Vaporetto and then a bus ride which includes a ferry ride) from central Venice, but seems like a world apart: it's a long and very narrow (100 m) fishermen's island with colorful houses, wild beaches and few restaurnts. If...More
