Say hello to... Lido di Jesolo
History museums, theme parks and designer outlets – Venice’s beachside sibling is a haven for all things fun-filled. This super seafront is close to the dreamy floating city, but it has bags of top local sights. Enjoy wine tasting or Aperol spritz sipping, and get ready to explore one gelato scoop at a time.
- Beach lovers – Lido di Jesolo’s beach is a 15-kilometre swathe of golden Dolomite sand, lapped by the rolling waves of the Adriatic Sea. The Lido section in the east is filled with sandcastle-building competitions, games of beach rugby, and a portfolio of watersports.
- Sightseeing lovers – A day trip to Venice has to be on the cards. Immerse yourself in pure beauty between a maze of gondolas and serene cityscapes, sampling sumptuous local delicacies as you explore.
- Thrill seekers – The Blue Flag sands of Lido di Jesolo are well stocked when it comes to activities. Whether you want to zip over the waves on a jet-ski, or catch the breeze in your sails with a spot of windsurfing, you’ll find plenty of watersports centres on the sand. And at the eastern part of the beach, you can even sign up for a how-to course in sailing.
