Lido, Venice, Italy

Venice Lido is an 12 km long seaside resort located on the upper Adriatic in Venice, Italy. The Venice Film Festival takes place at the Lido every September. The island is home to three settlements. The Lido itself, in the north, is home to the Film Festival, the Grand Hotel des Bains, the Venice Casino and the Grand Hotel Excelsior. Malamocco, in the centre, is the first and, for a long time, the only settlement. It was at one time hometo the Doge of Venice.

Alberoni at the southern end is home to the golf course. The heart of the island is the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta, a wide street approximately 700 m long that leads from the lagoon on one side to the sea on the other. It houses hotels, shops, and tourist-centric restaurants.

After a whole day spent walking along the Venetian streets – ‘Calli’ – with many other tourists, it is wonderful to relax at the Lido and enjoy the quiet, peaceful green island which stretches between the open sea and lagoon. The Lido is only 10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of St Mark’s square.

Venezia Lido, a public airport suitable for smaller aircraft, is found on the NE end of Lido di Venezia.
