Lido, Venice

3.9
#4 of 26 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.

  • Very interesting island. Despite a number of channels, is more reminiscent of a small Italian city than Venice. Very much it was pleasant to wander through the quiet streets. Saw a beautiful beach (sorry was in January). Highly recommend to visit the shrine of Saint Nicholas.

  • Very nice place, with modern constructions. Urbanized to the 20th century. With very good restaurants and bars. There are also good shops. At the time of my trip with very affordable prices. And the pleasure of the journey to and from there.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
