A 7 mile long and narrow island separating Venice from the Adriatic Sea, the Lido is a wonderful spot offering peace, open space, fresh air and a relaxing change of scenery away from the hustle and bustle yet with quick and easy access across the waters by vaporetto (water bus) throughout the day and night to the cultural hotspots and sights of central Venice.
Setting for the glamourous Venice Film Festival taking place annually in late August/early September and a perfect location for recreation, the island offers sandy beaches, well-equipped and elegant bathing establishments, a range of sporting facilities including tennis clubs, cycle hire and, in the lush and peaceful setting of Alberoni , golf at one of the most beautiful and historic golf clubs in Europe – the 18 hole ‘Circolo Del Golf Venezia’ dating all the way back to 1930.
In contrast to central Venice, cars and driving are permitted on the Lido, with the local transport company offering a car transportation ferry-boat service between Venice Tronchetto and Lido San Nicolò where there is also a small airport (Aeroporto Nicelli) offering helicopter trips over the city.
