Lido di Venezia is one of the main islands in the Venice Lagoon which delimitates the lagoon on one side and the Adriatic Sea - on the other. The island is well connected with Marco Polo Venice airport, the historic centre of Venice and the mainland by numerous water transport routes. The coastline is famous all around the world for its long golden sandy beaches, big historical hotels, characteristic Liberty style buildings, and is especially renowned for frequent visits of the international jet sets and as a location from famous films. Lido di Venezia is also important as a naturalistic setting: just think of the Murazzi zone with its free beaches and crystal clear sea, the oasis of the WWF Alberoni and Saint Nicholas’ beaches with its sandy dunes. At the end of August – first weeks of September the island hosts the Internation Venice Film Festival becoming the centre of the international scene.
