Venice Lido in August is the ideal solution for your holidays dedicated to the sea and to culture. Actually, Venice Lido – the long and subtle 12 km-long island separating the open sea from Venice Lagoon – offers golden beaches on one side, and the charming magic of Venice on the other one. Lido guests will therefore enjoy, in a unique stay, the relaxing atmosphere of the beach awarded with the EU Blue Flag and Venice cultural offer, with its museums and the contemporary art exhibitions not to be missed.
Venice Lido can be reached easily and rapidly in August; actually not everyone knows that you can get there very comfortably by car: you will just need to take the ferry from Venice – Tronchetto and in one hour, with a spectacular view of Venice, you’ll reach the Lido. Once landed, you’ll fall in love with the island: art nouveau buildings, green gardens and lanes, a lively atmosphere without too many tourists, shops and markets, fine restaurants and typical “trattorias” where you’ll have the chance to taste the typical venetian cuisine. The beach and the sea are waiting for you, for a perfect relaxation; in fact, Lido beach area is never too crowded, even in August, and it is perfect to enjoy the nice summer days.
Then, when you’ll decide to leave the beach, Venice will be there, waiting for you. From the Lido, it will take you just half an hour by public ferry to reach one of the most beautiful places in the world: Piazza San Marco. From there, you’ll start discovering Venice. We suggest you to visit Palazzo Ducale, with the wonderful rooms of the Doge’s residence; to enter St. Mark’s Basilica where the gold mosaics covering the cathedral interiors will enchant you and to get to the top of St. Mark’s Bell Tower (taking the elevator) to enjoy a breathtaking view of the city and its lagoon. If you prefer contemporary art, among the main events of August, you should not miss Prada Foundation, Pinault Foundation and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Before going back to the Lido, you should really stop by at one of the historical cafés in Piazza San Marco for a coffee or a “spritz”, the typical venetian aperitif, just like Dickens, Hemingway and Casanova used to do. Now you can take the ferry and get back to the Lido, to enjoy the sunset over the lagoon with its amazing August hues.
