Stayed on Lido island for 4 nights. A great island to stay after a days sightseeing in Venice. Lovely beach, shops and restaurants, would love to stay here again.

A nice little island and a good place to stay with good Resteraunts and bars along with hotels. I liked the idea of using the boats daily to get into Venice from different routes and the views are amazing as you approach!

Only a 20 minute lasting boat ride helps you to flee from crowded, loud and hectic venice city center. What you get: great, clean beaches, restaurants which are more affordable, and a nice calm atmosphere.

We had an amazing time walking around Lido, and eating in the beautiful Cafes along the main Street. Cappuccinos, pizza, etc. Great little shops, very relaxing.

Great day out for us, lots of things to explore and shops were plenty and not very expensive for a tourist resort.

The island is a sandbar on the Adriatic Sea. Swimming and restaurants on the water. Home of the Venice International Film Festival.

Pretty with tree lined road on the walk to the Free Beach. But to sit in shade, we had to pay 27 euros for one umbrella and two basic loungers. We found a great outdoor restaurant which was lovely, with tropical plants, and good value.

We had the crazy idea to go to the beach for a change but being used to Thai or even American beaches we got quite disappointed. The sand is a depressing dark color and you are only allowed to walk along the long beach, you...More

The beach area on the Venice Lido is a very sandy beach and is split between the free beach and the paid for areas with umbrellas and sunbeds for hire. €36 for a days hire of umbrella and 3 sunbeds for the day. The free...More

You can use the Vaperetto but it’s not easy to work out if you’ve never been before. We were so glad to have someone to meet us at the airport. They then drive you to your water taxi which is around a 15 to 20 minutes... More

Yes, most hotels can sell you tickets for the private beaches. Cost €12 a day for toilets, shower and changing and of course the bed and umbrella. There is a public beach with the same facilities at €18 a day.
