Insider tip:

Lido di Jesolo is one of the largest resorts on the Adriatic Sea in Italy. The legendary golden sandy beach is 15 kilometers long and one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy. Jesolo is both a party place with many young people and a classic seaside resort. There are many recreational facilities such as water parks, one of the largest Ferris wheels in Europe and modern aquarium and much more. Venice can be reached from Lido di Jesolo in an hour by bus and ferry, ideal for a day trip....

Lido di Jesolo is a modern place. There are many new buildings and skyscrapers. The scale of tourism is gigantic. Actually, the place is a suburb of the city of Jesolo, which is a few kilometers inland. But now the suburb is much better known than the city itself. There are hundreds of hotels and, restaurants towards Cavallino along the beach. Cavallino has similar dimensions to Jesolo. Together it is one of the largest vacation areas in Europe. In Italy, at most Rimini a few hundred kilometers south can keep up with Jesolo / Cavallino. Every summer, 4 to 6 million tourists come to Jesolo, plus a few million to Cavallino. In winter, however, there is not much going on in the beach resort.

The center of Lido di Jesolo is also modern. The whole village gives the impression of having been built in the last few decades. There are no old buildings or an old town.

Very many tourists come from Germany, there are even German pubs in Lido di Jesolo. The beer is served partly, as in Bavaria, in Maßkrügen (1 liter).

The biggest attraction in Lido di Jesolo is undoubtedly the beach. The wide, 15 km long beach is one of the longest beaches in Italy. You can go to the beach without paying an entrance fee. Beach chairs and sunbeds are, as often in northern Italy expensive (over 20 euros for 2 people per day).

Also in Jesolo there are some famous amusement parks. The most famous is the water park Caribe Bay with great slides and much more. >>>> More info and online tickets

Another attraction is the 60-meter Ferris wheel "The Wheel of Venice", not far from the center of Lido di Jesolo. The Ferris wheel has a similar height as the legendary Ferris wheel in the Prater in Vienna. To our knowledge, there is no Ferris wheel of similar size in Germany.

Other attractions in the tourist town near Venice are, for example, the large water park Aqualandia, the zoo Tropicarium Park and the modern, large aquarium Sea Life. The zoo, the aquarium and the Ferris wheel are almost next to each other not far from the city center.

Shopping Lido di Jesolo: The main shopping street is Via Andrea Bafile, which is many kilometers long. This street runs parallel to the beach.

Our tips for accommodation in Lido di Jesolo 2024

 Very nice we found the Hotel Lido in the center of Lido di Jesolo almost directly on the beach. The hotel has a private section on the beach, sun loungers and umbrella are free for hotel guests. I paid under 40 euros for a single room in September and October, and a delicious breakfast is included. The nice lady at the reception speaks excellent German. The bus to the ferry to Venice is only a 2 to 3 minute walk from the Hotel Lido.

Just outside the city center towards Cavallino are 2 more of our favorites. The often very inexpensive Hotel Ute and the Hotel Palme. Both are not far from the famous Aqualandia water park and almost directly on the golden beach of Lido di Jesolo. A good breakfast is included in the price of both hotels, as far as we know.

The 3 hotels are accommodations that have a good price / performance ratio and cost outside the high season well below 50 euros. Of course, there are also many luxury accommodations in Lido di Jesolo. In our opinion, the best overview of hotels and guesthouses in Jesolo with booking option can be found on

Very popular in the region of Jesolo / Cavallino is also camping. In the area are some of the largest campsites in Italy.

Staying in Jesolo and day trips to Venice a good idea?

Some Venice tourists stay overnight in Jesolo. One reason is the cheap accommodation prices in Jesolo out of season. While in high summer it is often difficult to find a room in Jesolo for under 100 euros, in winter the prices drop to sometimes under 40 euros. The supply of hotels is high, but out of season (around mid-May to mid-October) tourists hardly come. In Venice, the season is much longer with correspondingly higher prices. In Venice, the season is from Carnival (February / March) until at least the end of October. A disadvantage is the rather long drive to Venice. One is in the morning to Venice and in the evening back to Jesolo in each case a good hour on the road. Part of the money saved on the overnight stay is also spent again on bus and ferry. In our opinion, staying overnight in Lido di Jesolo is only worth it if you don't want to make a trip to Venice every day of your vacation.

How do I get from Lido di Jesolo to Venice by bus / ferry?

Since parking in Venice is very expensive (20 to 30 euros per day), it is recommended to arrive by public transport.

There are 2 ways to get from Lido di Jesolo to Venice. One is to take the bus to Punta Sabbioni and then the ferry to Venice. The alternative is a rather long, direct bus ride via the airport and Mestre to the old town of Venice.

Bus and ferry (Our recommendation): Buses to Cavallino leave every 30 minutes during the day and stop at many stops along the way behind the beach of Jesolo (bus line 23a). Many hotels are only a few hundred meters from the nearest bus stop. The Lido di Jesolo - Cavallino - Punta Sabbioni buses connect directly with the big water buses (ferries) to Venice. Travel times: Bus just under half an hour, ferry a good half hour. Tickets for the buses are available in tobacconists and in many hotels. Tickets for the water buses (ferries) are available online:

>>> >>>     On this link you can buy tickets for the water buses (vaporetto)

Bus only: Buses leave from the new, modern bus station in Lido di Jesolo about once an hour (somewhat irregularly) to the bus station in the old town of Venice (Piazzale Roma). On the way they stop, among other places, in the city of Jesolo, at Venice Marco Polo Airport and in Mestre at the train station. Tickets are available on this German-language website (only 4.50 euros one-way). You can also buy tickets for the return trip.

Tickets for the buses: The fares are quite reasonable for the buses. Tickets are not available on the bus. It is essential to buy them beforehand. Tickets are available at the bus stations in Lido die Jesolo, Punta Sabbioni and in Venice. If you get on at a small stop along the way, you can also buy bus tickets at any tobacco store.

Ferry tickets: The ferries are operated by a different company (ACTV) than the buses to and from Jesolo (ATVO). Venice local transport tickets are valid on the ferries. Single trip tickets are quite expensive (7.50 euros). However, there are daily tickets (20 euros), multi-day tickets and weekly tickets (60 euros). More info on this page

Excursion from Lido di Jesolo to Venice and two other islands by boat

Of course, there are also private operators who offer excursions by boat from Lido di Jesolo. A very popular tour goes to Venice and the two islands Murano and Burano. The day trip lasts about 11 hours. You will be picked up at your hotel in Lido di Jesolo in the morning and brought back in the evening, it couldn't be easier. More information about this day trip from Jesolo to Venice including online tickets is available on this webpage .

Bus from Jesolo to the airport

There are frequent bus connections between Venezia Marco Polo Airport and the Lido di Jesolo bus station. In high season, buses run several times an hour.

Ferries to other islands

If you take the half-hourly bus of line 23a from Jesolo to the port of Punta Sabbioni in the south of the peninsula Litorale del Cavallino, you can also take direct ferries to other popular islands. These include the island of glassblowers Murano, the island of lace Burano and the small island of Torcello. But beware; these public passenger ferries only run once an hour, so you only have direct ferry connections on every other bus on line 23a from Lido di Jesolo.

By car from Lido di Jesolo to Venice

Those who are not afraid of the high parking fees of Venice can also drive directly to Venice with their own car or rental car. The central city of the Venice region is of course well signposted, driving time about 45 minutes. Those who know their way around can also park their car on the mainland in Mestre or Marghera and travel the last few kilometers to Venice by streetcar or bus.

Important: Long queues and fast admission to the Doge's Palace

Venice is attracting every year more and more tourists. The majority of the millions of visitors of Venice want to see the important sights, one of them is the Doge's Palace.

Very long lines are often formed at the entrance, causing  long waiting times.

We know only one way not to wait: You buy a ticket online in advance
