Lido, Venice

4.3
#3 of 31 in Parks in Venice
The site of the Venice Film Festival, Lido runs 11 km (7 mi) along northern Italy but is separated from the mainland by a strip of water. The sandbar island is home to 20,000 Venetian residents and a handful of casinos and hotels. Many of the hotels are near a wide beach along the Adriatic Sea. This spot inspired Thomas Mann's novel "Death in Venice." The sandbar, now a tourist haven, once was home to the doge of Venice, as well as to one of the first settlements in the region. Check out British traveler writer Robin Saikia's history of the island in "The Venice Lido" for a comprehensive overview of the island's history.

  • Warm water and sandy beaches. Not ridiculously overcrowded. To rent two recliners and and a sun umbrella will set you back 27€ for the day.  more »
  • Lido is excellent for those looking to escape some of the hustle and bustle of Venice, for those seeking a quieter lodging and do not mind having to use the Vaporeto to get around. It is an island with small town, with cars, high buildings, good restaurants and for those wishing to freshen up with a delicious sea bath, is the ideal place to do this.

  • A very big island very close to venice. A nice trip by boat
  • Nice ride on the water buses to this island, best to get a two day travel pass and visit as much as you can the surrounding islands.
