Starting from the Punta Sabbioni Lighthouse and ending at the mouth of the Piave River, Lido di Jesolo stretches for more than 15km along the coast, and here you’ll find plenty of entertainment as well as opportunities for pure relaxation. The area is divided into two different parts: the Jesolo Town (or Paese) – which is situated just behind the beach and surrounds the Veneta Lagoon, and the Lido that runs along the peninsula that shelters the city of Venice. Jesolo Town is a quiet, green place, where the bell tower of the church dominates the landscape. The town offers a number of small shops and cafés, as well as more tranquil pace of life away from Venice and the Lido. However, if you’re seeking a bit more tempo and adrenaline to add to your holiday, then follow the Sile River to where the Lido begins. Spend at least a day in Aqualandia, where you’ll find a Caribbean themed waterpark, which has the highest water-slide in the world, as well as over 25 other attractions that you can have a go at. Find your own perfect spot along the beach and enjoy the sun and the warm Adriatic water, and then visit the nearby Tropicarium Park, where you can see reptiles, sharks and lots of other exotic animals. Choosing to stay in Jesolo of course doesn’t exclude a visit to Venice, but the tranquil atmosphere away from the city, means that you can unwind completely either by the beach, inland or in the privacy of your hotel room, after a busy day among all the other visitors to Venice. Alternatively you can also go for a meditative walk stroll around the quiet water of the Laguna del Mort, just north of the Lido. Jesolo is another side of Veneto that only adds to the charm of the entire region and is best explored in late spring and early summer.
