Lido di Venezia

Barcelona Beach
7am Lido

If you’re a little weary from travelling and seeing all the sights, why not take a day to head out of the city and soak up some sunshine on the beach? Lido di Venezia features a 12km long stretch of beach with fine, golden sand where you can relax and enjoy a bit a peace.

While some parts of the beach are owned by hotels, there is a public part of the beach at the end of Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta where you can hire a beach hut for the day if you want to. The shallow water makes the beach great for paddling, and the soft sand is ideal for barefoot walks.

If you prefer your beaches a little quieter and less crowded, you may want to hire a bike from one of the shops on Gran Viale and ride down to the more peaceful shores of Alberoni at the southern end of Lido.

As well as the beaches, Lido offers some small canals and gorgeous views of the city across the lagoon. There’s also ample opportunity for window shopping and picking up Murano glassware, jewellery, art or other souvenirs.If you’ve seen the film “Death In Venice”, you may also be interested in exploring the area around the Hotel des Bains, where the movie was set. Some of the famous scenes were set on the beach in Lido.

There are plenty of options when you get hungry, from gelato to local Venetian seafood. Try Ristorante Gran Viale – it’s popular with the locals, which is always a good sign but also means it gets busy too – so you might want to reserve a table. It’s very close to the vaporetto stop when you get to Lido, and if you just follow your nose down to the end of the road, you’ll get to the beach.

The journey to Lido and its beaches takes about 35 minutes altogether. Take the vaporetto from Zittelle to Lido S.M.E. and walk down Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta to find the beach.
