« Come with us in a furnace of Murano! | International Theatre Festival in Venice »
For the weekend weather forecasts have expected 32 degrees (90° F) and very high humidity level. Visit Venice during the summer months could be very difficult due to these high temperature.
Although in this heat you do not give up to tour, after visiting the beautiful museums and churches of Venice, return to the hotel, freshen up and put in the bag your swimsuit… the beach of Venice is just around the corner!
From the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Sant’Elena you can take water bus line n. 5.1 or 5.2, that will bring you to Lido of Venice in just 15 minutes.
The Lido forms the main land barrier between Venice and the open sea. The main attraction for many to the Lido is the famous beach celebrated in Thomas Mann’s “Death in Venice”, and frequently mentioned as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
The public beach is quite often crowded from the large numbers of both locals and tourists that use the beach in the summer months. An alternative to the public beach is to hire a cabana or a post on one of the private beaches.
For fans of Golf, the Lido boasts the only golf-course in Venice. Also, it’s the only island that allows cars and mopeds on its roads. The long roads that seem that follow the islands coast are ideal for cyclist and bikes can be rented on the island near the main water-bus station coming from central Venice.
The Lido is at its most popular during the first week of September when it hosts the famous Venetian film festival. During this time the whole island is besieged by Hollywood and film-makers and press from around the globe.
