The top 2022 beach holiday is at the Venice Lido.
With 12 km of golden sand, crystal-clear water, and just a 15-minute vaporetto ride from Piazza San Marco, the Lido is Venice's top beach destination. From June to September, bathing establishments open their characteristic huts and provide sunbeds and umbrellas so you can relax and enjoy the many activities available along the beach. Plenty of kiosks and restaurants ensure a ready supply of drinks, ice creams, snacks, and lunches overlooking the sea.
The Venice Lido can be reached directly by car, the only island in the lagoon that allows driving, thanks to the ferryboat departing from Tronchetto, which connects the mainland to the island. However, the best way to discover the Lido is by bicycle and on foot, so you can enjoy the famous Art Nouveau architecture of the hotels and villas of the early twentieth century, as well as the splendid view of Venice along Via Alberoni. One village you simply must see is Malamocco, a small fishing village where time seems to have stopped and where you can visit the house of Hugo Pratt, author of the adventures of Corto Maltese. This area is also home to a Jewish Cemetery, one of the oldest in Europe.
A beach holiday at the Venice Lido is an excellent opportunity to visit Venice and the many events scheduled for the summer, starting with the Biennale Arte 2022, which can be reached from the Lido in just 10 minutes by vaporetto.
