Insider's Venice

An evening view of Saint Mark's Square.This trip is eligible for our Worry-Free Booking promotion.

The Lido is considered the Golden Island, a luxurious 12 kilometer strip packed with charming historical homes and of course gorgeous beaches on both the Adriatic Sea and the lagoon. The Lido’s beauty serves as inspiration for many poets, including Lord Byron, due to the amazing sunset over the lagoon as well as the lush greenery. The Lido di Venezia has long been considered a luxurious escape from the hubbub of the mainland; with just a short 10-minute trip across the lagoon, visit this beach resort island that is the perfect relaxing getaway. In addition to enjoying the beaches, the Lido is also known for its tennis courts as well as its beautiful golf club, an International Film Festival, and stunning Liberty architecture.
