We were amazed by that island. So close to Venice and yet so different. N tourists, laid back, genuine lagoon life of local fishermen. If you have time go away from Venice and stay there night or two. Long silver sand beach.
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
We traveled to Pellestrina for the day from Venice on recommendation by a friend. While relatively difficult to get to, we enjoyed our day there immensely. We took the ferry to Lido and caught the bus to Pellestrina there. Travel time was a little over...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.
From the Madding Crowd! Here is a little bit of old Venice with commercial fishing boats and a working waterfront. A long embankment facing the Adriatic atop a 12 foot high seawall built up in stages (over the centuries?) provides great walking and jogging opps...More
We visited the island on a warm Saturday afternoon at the end of January, taking the No. 11 bus (I think that's the number) to its southern end and then walking halfway back and then catching a bus back to the ferry and Lido.
We were staying on Lido, and saw photos of Pellestrina. Otherwise, we would have missed out!
We caught the number 11 bus from Santa Maria Elisabetta - the same place the vaporetti stop. The journey is about 40 minutes,m and includes a short hop by...More
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
very simple, but truly authentic crowd-devoid, sea side location with a unique feeling and a very special lights provided by the Venetian Laguna , the free and deserted beaches and the excellent seafood
The bus runs almost to the cemetery, which is after Da Celeste. You want to get off a couple of stops before the end, at "La Rosa", then walk to the promenade (Vanelli) and turn right. It's only about 200 metres or so from... More
The bus runs almost to the cemetery, which is after Da Celeste. You want to get off a couple of stops before the end, at "La Rosa", then walk to the promenade (Vanelli) and turn right. It's only about 200 metres or so from the bus stop. The next stop is announced automatically on the bus. La Rosa is the stop after Brasiola if the system isn't working. The number 11 and the night bus stop there.
