Lido di Venezia

One of the best-known islands of the Venetian lagoon. The Lido is a 12 km stretch of sand, strategically positioned between the Lagoon and the open sea, and is only connected to the city and dry land by “vaporetti” or Ferries.
The Lido became famous at the beginning of the 20th century as a holiday resort for European monarchy, aristocracy and artists that loved to stay at the Grand Hotels of the Island, the Hotel Excelsior and the Grand Hotel Des Bains.
Its wonderful sandy beaches are the ideal refuge from the summer heath of the city and are a beloved resort for Venetian and tourists.
Famous for its wonderful liberty architecture and breath-taking sunshine’s.
At the end of summer, the oldest film festival in the world turns the sleepy Lido into a mini Hollywood. The festival revolves around the Palazzo del cinema and the hotel Excelsior to which actors and celebrities from all over the world, flock.
To discover the hidden and a real authentic village of the lagoon, make sure to visit Malamocco, an ancient town that gives the impression of being in a time warp.
Among other attractions the area of Alberoni, at the very south part of the island, is home to the Venice Golf Club. Henry Ford, commissioned the course in 1928, when he discovered to his disappointment that there was nowhere for him to play golf in Italy.
Now it is the oldest and one of the most beautiful Golf Clubs in Italy.
