Venice & Lido di Jesolo

  • Destination: Italy
  • Duration: 7 days

Venice has been described as the most beautiful city built by man and one of Europe’s most recognisable cities. Located in northeast Italy and made actually of small islands, this city is famous for its water transport system and interconnected canals, where art and history combine with old trades and the beauty of the sea.

You will never be short of something to do and see in the “City of Bridges”. The characteristic bridges which span the many canals and are navigated by gondolas are some of the most familiar images of the city. Also, the architectural marvel which is the Piazza San Marco and the Basilica that stands impressively on one of its sides, is an artistic and architectural marriage of beauty. Groups arriving in Venice will be still transported into another world, one whose atmosphere and beauty remain incomparable.

Lido di Jesolo offers groups a great resort that offers quick access to Venice as well as the sandy beaches of the Adriatic Sea during their tour. The area offers many opportunities for fun such as outdoor sports, local shopping and also typical crafts workshops to buy souvenirs.

Sights & places of interest in Venice & Lido di Jesolo to visit

St Mark’s Square
Venice & Lido di Jesolo The Piazza San Marco is the main square in Venice and is simply very often called the “the Piazza”. The square is dominated by a great church dedicated to Saint Mark and is St. Mark’s Basilica. The square also has many Venetian landmarks such as the Clock Tower which was finished in 1499 and also the towering Campanile of St Mark’s Church.

St Mark’s Basilica
Venice & Lido di Jesolo The most famous of all of Venice’s churches, this stunning example of Byzantine architecture is the seat of the Patriarch of Venice and is also connected to the Doge’s Palace. The site was consecrated in the 11th century as the site for the relics of St Mark the Evangelist. In front of the basilica also stands the Horses of St. Mark which were installed on the balcony around 1254 and have been a symbol of Venice ever since then.

Grand Canal
Venice & Lido di Jesolo This waterway forms one of the major water traffic corridors in the city and is filled with water buses, water taxis, and gondolas. The banks of the canal are lined with more than 170 buildings dating back to the 13th century and all along the canal visitors can expect to see splendid examples of architecture from Venetian Gothic, Renaissance, and Venetian Baroque.

Doge’s Palace
Venice & Lido di Jesolo This Venetian Gothic style palace is one of the most recognisable landmarks of Venice. The palace was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the city of Venice. The palace was the seat of government since around 810 when it was dedicated that a palace should be built on the site. It is one of the most visited sites in all of Venice still today.

Rialto Bridge
Venice & Lido di Jesolo The Rialto Bridge is the oldest of the four bridges that spans across the Grand Canal in Venice. The original wooden bridges which were built on the same location as the present bridge collapsed due to heavy weight and deterioration which led to the constructions of the stone version which was finished in the 16th century and still stands today as it was first built.

San Giorgio Maggiore
Venice & Lido di Jesolo This island is the largest island outside the main island group which make up the city of Venice. The island has a church dedicated to Saint George hence the island’s name of San Giorgio Maggiore and is dominated by the bell tower which stands near to it. Nowadays, the island is also home to the Cini Foundation arts centre, library, and an open-air theatre.

Gallerie dell’Accademia
Venice & Lido di Jesolo This art museum located on the south bank of the Grand Canal exhibits pre-19th century art in Venice and northern Italy. Originally the art academy of Venice, the current museum became independent in the late 19th century. Inside the museum are many well known works from artists including Leonardo Da Vinci’s Drawing of Vitruvian Man.

Venice & Lido di Jesolo Murano is a series of small islands linked by bridges in Venice which is famous for its glass and mirror making.
