Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Nice place to spend a couple hours away from the crowds of Venice’s main island. Lido is quieter, there was almost no one on the beach when I went to watch the sun set over the Adriatic

    Beautiful beach! There were a couple of restaurants on the beach that you could get food and eat at a table or bring back to your seat. The food was so good too and they had cocktails! The beach had a changing room, a shower and hair dryer and a locker for your belonging. The guy at the desk didn't tell us how to open the locker and they were out of towels and we couldn't purchase them, we had to come back after 20 mins for towels which was annoying. The beach had paths everywhere so you didn't have to put your feet in the sand. We reserved two chairs which we were escorted to. Our chairs had an umbrella and a table for us. It was awesome!

    We are living for a bit on Lido and this village isn't far from us. It is pretty and the views of the main part of Venice from the lagoon side are lovely.

    However it feels very sleepy and there isn't loads to see, so if you don't have long in the city I wouldn't make a special trip.

    San Nicolò is an important Venice church, well worth a visit not so much because of its architecture or contents but because of its symbolic importance on the outer boundary of Venice. It was the last sight sailors would see of Venice on outward bound trading trips - and St Nicholas was very much the gatekeeper of the city, directly answerable, as it were, to the St Mark the Evangelist, the protector of Venice. Every year there was an important ceremonial service and banquet here after the traditional "marriage" of the Doge to the sea - and the sanctity of the Basilica was formally transmitted to the precincts of San Nicolò. The church is open to the public and situated on the Riviera San Nicolò. The main attraction, unjustly dismissed by Ruskin, are the exquisitely carved walnut choir stalls made in 1636 by Giovanni da Crema and Camillo di San Luca. The panels depict 27 scenes from the life of St Nicholas. A Baroque polychrome marble altar contains his remains and those of St Theodore. Though the building was extensively remodelled in the post-Palladian building fl urry of the 18th century, it preserves important Corinthian columns and capitals. There is also an austere 14th-century life-size carved wooden crucifix. The earliest building of note on the Lido is the former Benedictine monastery at San Nicolò, founded in the 11th century, now a study centre. The 16th-century Renaissance cloisters are beautiful—they stood in for a Brazilian monastery in the James Bond film Moonraker. Nearby is the Palazzetto del Consiglio dei Dieci, c. 1520. The 16th-century bridge on the Riviera San Nicolò is made of brick and Istrian stone and is now a key stage in the annual marriage with the sea, at which the mayor of Venice stands in for the Doge in an enjoyable ceremony, albeit considerably toned down since the days of the original sposalizio.

    Countless rows of beach chairs / umbrellas, friendly, hard-working staff who make the impossible come true and conjure up a few more chairs somewhere.
    A wooden walkway that leads between the rows to the sea and which, like a catwalk, tells whole life stories of families who move loudly on it. You feel like you're in the theater.
    Atmospheric, entertaining, colorful, cheerful ..... Italian.

    We visited late August right before the Venice Film Festival. We were staying in Murano. We purchased roundtrip tickets to take the Alilaguna ferry from Murano to Lido. It was an easy commute - about 30 minutes one way. Once the ferry arrived at Lido SME it was easy to purchase the round trip bus ticket to take the bus 2 stops to the beach right to the entrance. We made our reservations online for the Lungomare beach club. When you reserve online all you need to do is arrive at the check in and give your information and they give you a wrist band which gives you access to the showers and bathrooms. If you rent towels online then you will also be asked for a cash deposit upon arrival. There is a kiosk that is more like a convenience store that sells everything you could need and at reasonable prices. From bathing suits to water toys to newspapers to snacks to sunscreen to just anything you could need. They will inflate the water toys free of charge. There is also a separate food area where you can get sandwiches and other convenient food items. The sea was calm and warm and there are lifeguards. Venice was having an intense heat wave and going to Lido was worth every cent.

    It was under renovation in September 2017 when we visited. The church looks very nice, like any churches in Venice. Very convenient to visit using the public transportation.

    We saw the old tombs through a locked gate but couldn't access them through the main entrance. There is a good value snack bar a couple of hundred metres to the west.

    The Hotel De Bains with its rich history of very famous guests has been shut down , plans are in the making to turn this landmark into luxury apartment/condominiums, the architects and developers will be challenged to keep its golden era charm, while bringing the amenities to modern state of the art....for those fortunate enough to be able to afford one of those beautiful apartments, they will enjoy the excellence of the building and its new amenities, and the beauty of the beachfront area of the Lido
