The Venetian Riviera is a small region located in the north-eastern part of Italy, where the Venetian Lagoon meets the Adriatic Sea. Whilst the star of the show in this resort is the Venetian Riviera’s capital and largest city, Venice, it has so much more to offer, from tiny interesting islands to fun-filled beach resorts. On the Venetian Riviera, you’ll get the best of both worlds of a fun family holiday and a romantic getaway.
Lido di Jesolo is one of the Venetian Riviera’s most popular resorts and if you enjoy nothing more than spending hours relaxing in the sunshine, you’ll love the golden beach here. It’s a 17 kilometre Blue Flag winner with plenty of sunloungers and parasols, perfect for finding your ideal tanning spot. This beach is popular with the kids too as the sea water is just right for them to splash about in and there’s lots going on to keep them entertained. They’ll spend the whole holiday trying to replicate the sand sculptures on the beachfront promenade.
A city of culture
Venice is a must-see during your Venetian Riviera holiday, this enchanting city has sights, shops, restaurants and so much more. Make your way around the sights, admiring the centuries-old architecture, stop at a local café for some homemade gelato and head for the main canal for a tour of Venice by water.
Italy is known for its high fashion and the Venetian Riviera is no exception. Whilst exploring Venice be sure to pop into one of its many designer boutiques and have a browse of the collection of high-end goods. In Lido di Jeselo, there’s a whole street dedicated to shopping, the Via Bafile. In high season, the shops open from early in the morning and stay open until late at night so no matter what time of the day it is, you can still get that shopping fix. Head to the islands in the Venetian Lagoon to pick up some hand-made Italian crafts.
