Should I hire a car if I'm travelling to the Venetian Riviera?

Unless you are looking to discover the areas of the Veneto, then car hire isn’t necessary when staying on the Venetian Riviera. Most visitors take at least one day out of their schedule to visit the city of Venice. Being part of the lagoon, the best mode of transport from Lido di Jesolo to Venice, is by boat, which runs throughout the day and into the evening from Punta Sabbioni, which connects by bus to Lido di Jesolo. Local buses also run throughout the resort, to the waterpark and resort centre.
