Tucked at the top of Italy’s Adriatic Coast the sun-drenched beaches of Lido di Jesolo extend for 15 kilometers with sand as soft as silk, brightly colored beach brollies and seaside bars aplenty.
Add to that pedaloes drawn up on the water’s edge, and it’s easy to see why this bright resort is such a hit with holidaymakers and families in particular. But the fun isn’t just confined to the beach.
Lido di Jesolo offers up a trio of attractions for all the family. There’s Aqualandia, for starters. Watch the kids as they whoosh down the waterslides and splash around in the pools. Thrills top the bill down at the Pista Azzurra go-kart track, too. And then there’s Luna Park, a fairground packed with all your favourite rides. But let’s not forget the main draw: Venice.
Just an hours’ ferry ride across the Venetian Lagoon, this dreamy city is a must on your holiday tick sheet. But Venice aside, Lido di Jesolo really comes into its own in the evenings. Restaurants spill out onto the pavements, and the shops stay open late here so you can snap up that piece of Venetian glass you’ve had your eye on. If you want to dance the night away, there are lots of discos and nightclubs to choose from, as well.
With its great beaches and close proximity to Venice, Lido di Jesolo hits just the right note if you’re looking to combine a beach break with one of the world’s most eye-popping cities.
