Top attractions

Venice Lido breaks offer the best of both worlds, with miles of sandy beaches allowing for a peaceful getaway, as well as easy access to the city’s central sights. The area is full of Art Deco architecture and sport resorts, and it’s also one of the few places in Venice where you can drive around - which is definitely a plus if you’re travelling with small kids.

Don’t skip going to the famous San Marco, as this spectacular landmark is a must see with its church and museum: you can even go up the bell tower for amazing panoramic views over the city. Visit the Grand Canal for many other famous sights, including the beautiful 16th century Rialto Bridge. The heart of the island is the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta full of houses hotels, shops, and restaurants. Since one of the best ways to explore Venice is to wander away from the main city centre and discover beautiful, winding narrow streets and canals, don’t forget to take a map with you. You’ll find dazzling architecture everywhere you look.

Venice is also home of several villas built around 1500 by the Venetian nobility, which you can still visit. You cannot miss Villa Pisani, also known as “the small Versailles”, famous for the amazing labyrinth in its park, and remember to add to your list Villa Foscari (designed by A. Palladio), as well as Villa Widmann, which is considered the jewel of the late Venetian Barocco.

After a long day’s sightseeing, why not try a romantic gondola trip? Holidays to Venice Lido also offer a fantastic shopping experience with a wide range of offers, from traditional Venetian lace, leather, and Murano glass, to top Italian designers around San Marco, or cheaper Italian goods at the Rialto market and farmers’ market.

Beaches

Beaches

Venice Lido is an 11km-long beach, famous for being home to the annual Venice Film Festival and for having been described in works by famous writers such as Goethe, Byron, and Thomas Mann. Most of the beach is privately owned by local hotels, but there are also two huge beaches which are freely accessible; so even if you’re not staying in one of the hotels on the coast, you can easily go for a swim or enjoy the sun while lying on the warm sand. You can also head to the main island to enjoy a number of extra options, especially Bagni Alberoni, one of the most famous beaches in the area, and the perfect choice to relax and recharge either on the beach itself or under the beautiful pine trees that surround the area.
