A few nautical minutes from Venice, Lido’s nearly seven miles of land insouciantly stretches along the sea. The city’s beachside destination, Lido combines celebrity grandeur with neighborly charisma. Films like “A Death in Venice” were shot here, and the island hosts Venice’s Film Festival every September. Beyond its red-carpet repertoire, Lido maintains a fishing-village feel—the kind where you can borrow sardines from the lady living next to you. Come summertime, Lido’s visiting populace drastically rises with the temperature.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

Venice's Beach Town
I really recommend staying in the Lido - nice places to eat, shop, public swimming pool etc.. Fun travelling by boat everywhere - lots of options and so good to return to normality after the intensity of Venice mainland."

'Tis the Season: Summer In Lido
If you want to be in the old city, this might be a bit out of the way (though you reach the city quite easy with a bus -or a bike ride- and a boat in less than half an hour), if you want to experience the REAL Venice, this is your place."
