Travel Guide
Lido di Jesolo which includes a sandy beach and general coastal views

At the heart of the Venetian Riviera is this lively resort destination, which has a sweeping beach, amusement parks and a thriving nightlife scene.

Jesolo is one of the most fashionable seaside resorts situated on northern Italy’s Adriatic Sea coastline. With beaches, theme parks, watersports and wildlife centers, it attracts a mix of families and young European tourists. Jesolo splits into two distinct areas: Jesolo, an urban and residential town; and Lido di Jesolo, a beach suburb.

The town of Jesolo straddles the banks of the River Sile, which curves around the northern edge of the Venetian Lagoon. It’s a quiet area home to atmospheric squares such as Piazzetta Jesolo. Visit the elegant Parrocchia San Giovanni Battista, which overlooks the tree-lined Piazza Giacomo Matteotti. Follow trails that skirt the riverbank and pass rolling green countryside. One route leads to the ruins of a medieval tower, Torre del Caligo.

High on the agenda for many visitors is the beach, which stretches for around 9 miles (15 kilometers) along the Adriatic Sea. The soft sand and inviting water are an essential part of summers on the Venetian Riviera. Choose between the private clubs with bars and rows of sunbeds or the public access areas. Try kitesurfing, parasailing and windsurfing or join a pirate ship cruise.

Running parallel to the beach is Via Bafile, the heart of Lido di Jesolo’s commercial and entertainment district. Browse galleries, handicraft stores, high-end fashion outlets and jewelers, among other retail options. Eat at ice cream parlors, pizzerias and trattorias. Sample the after-dark activities at pubs, open-air nightclubs and wine bars.

Enjoy some family-friendly fun on the waterslides at the Caribbean-themed Aqualandia. Get up-close to exotic marine life at Sea Life Jesolo and Tropicarium Park. Ride classic fairground attractions at New Jesolandia and race around a go-kart track at Kartodromo Pista Azzurra. Bring your golf clubs for a round of 18-holes at Golf Club Jesolo or challenge the obstacles at Adventure Golf.

Reach Jesolo by taking a bus from Venice and then get around by foot, rented bike and a summer sightseeing bus. Stay at accommodations that are just steps from the glorious beach.

"Fully enjoyed my stay in the apartment! No-frills but simple and clean. The partner hotel's customer service was great! Apparently there is not breakfast included like this website advertises. The hotel did allow us to have the buffet each day included."
