What Is The Difference Between Venice And Venice Lido?

Can you swim at Lido Beach Venice?

Unless there's a storm, Lido rarely sees breaking waves, and the water is so shallow you have to walk out at least 100 ft before you can swim. It makes these beaches ideal for toddlers and young children, who can safely play in the water and hunt for the few surviving crabs.

Is it better to stay in Venice or Lido?

Personally, I would prefer to stay in Venice itself, as it is a unique city, with lots of atmosphere, particularly in the evenings. On the other hand, staying on the Lido is quite relaxing, probably more so than in Venice itself, and you have a boat journey of only around 20 minutes or so to St Marks Square.

Which hotel was Death in Venice filmed?

The Grand Hotel des Bains is a former luxury hotel on the Lido of Venice in northern Italy.
