3.9/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web
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.

  • By boat over the lagoon and one is directly to the Lido. It is located in a typical northern Italian resort. Tip: located on the Lido and from there visit the city.

  • when visiting Venice, the lido is the perfect place to rest and relax. we stayed on the lido for three nights and used the water bus to st marks square. it's only a short ride. 
  • This area is worth a visit and has lots of nice restaurants. Much more laid back feeling and quite nice to get out of the buzz of the main tourist areas.
