Visit the island 'Lido di Venezia'

Transport You can visit the island of Lido by ACTV's public transport. We recommend that you first download the AVM Venezia official app on your phone from the PlayStore. This is the official app of ACTV and you can find the exact times of the waterbuses ('vaporetto') and the best route from your hotel. There are a number of lines that stop at Lido, namely line 1, the circular line 5.1 and 5.2 and in high season also line 6. To visit Lido you need two one-way tickets or an ACTV day ticket (23 euros) which you can purchase online.
Tip

The island of Lido di Venezia is very narrow but 11 kilometers long, making it difficult to discover much more than just the town of Lido and its beach. If you want to discover more of Lido, we recommend this special bike tour. The guided tour will lead you from the historic center of Venice to the ferry. Together with your bike you will then make the crossing to the island, after which you will visit all kinds of Lido sights with your guide.

Info & Bookings

Relax on Lido di Venezia

Lido is the town on the island of Lido di Venezia. The island is best known for its beach and the film festival that takes place there. In winter it is wonderfully quiet, but in July and August the island attracts many tourists. During a short city trip to Venice you probably will not visit the island, but with a longer summer holiday you can easily visit the island to escape from the bustle of the six boroughs in Venice. The islet, together with Lido Pellestrina, forms a barrier between the Venetian lagoon and the Adriatic Sea. The narrowest part of the island is heavily built-up, while the northern and southern extremes contain a lot of nature.

A day at the beach in Venice

On the side of the Adriatic Sea you will find a strip of beach where adults and children can relax. If you can't stay on your beach towel, you can also walk to the Faro di San Nicolò, visit the old Jewish cemetery or catch a show at the Planetarium. The island has enough hotels and restaurants, so staying overnight and having good food is no problem here. All the way south you can burn off your energy on the golf course or explore the military defense point.

Tip: An original bike tour with Baja Bikes

If you want to move around Venice in a different way, choose to rent a bicycle. With Baja Bikes you start in Tronchetto and this tour will lead you through the historic center of Venice to the ferry. Together with your bicycle you will then make the crossing to the island, after which you will visit all kinds of sights with your guide. The nice thing about a tour with a guide – compared to one without – is that you learn all kinds of useful information, but also fun facts. The great thing about this tour is that there is plenty time to enjoy the view along the way. And don't forget to take plenty of photos, so you can make everyone jealous after your visit to Venice Beach.
