Beach bum? Foodie fanatic? Barmy about bikes? Whether you’re looking to keep the family entertained or wanting to explore the great outdoors, Lido di Jesolo has something for everyone.
Sitting on the Adriatic Coast, Lido di Jesolo’s 15km-long beach stretches from the little fishing village of Cortellazzo at the end of the Piave river, to west just beyond the end of the River Sile. This sun-soaked seaside resort promises everything you need for the dolce vita. And at only 34km from Venice’s airport, it’s a great base for a diverse holiday of catching some rays while lolling on the beach, day trips to cultural hotspots like Venice or Verona, or even exploring the Venetian lagoon’s marshes and wetlands by bike.
Lido di Jesolo is a family-friendly destination that has plenty of activities to keep both big and small kids entertained all summer long. The choice is yours: you can relax and unwind on the white sandy beaches with shallow waters; indulge in some water sports or a spot of beach volleyball; stroll along the promenade and hit the numerous boutiques on offer; or send the kids off to Aqualandia – Italy’s most popular water theme park that even features the tallest bungee-jumping tower in Europe! Many events and festivals also take place throughout the summer months too, like the Jesolo Sand Sculpture Festival, fireworks for the Ferragosto bank holiday mid-August, and the foodie bonanza Feste Marinare celebrating locally-caught fresh fish, throughout July and August.
If you’re looking to stretch your legs and discover further afield, there are 500km of cycling tracks just waiting to be discovered! Suitable for all levels and covering varying distances, the 12 different itineraries on offer will take you through pine forests, coastal paths, historic villages, and wonderful wetlands for bird spotting galore. Discover the sleepy fishing village of Cortellazzo, the brightly painted fishermen’s cottages of Caorle, and the pinewood terrain of Eraclea and its “Lagoon of the Dead”, or take the route into the heart of the peninsula and through Lio Piccolo for picturesque golden sunsets on the lagoon.
As of March 26th, 2018, Luxair will operate daily flights and this for the entire summer season.
