Lido beach is worth spending the day and sunning. This is the beach where The Venetians go too. I suggest you get a cabana and just relax and take the sun and have a good lunch at outdoor café atThe Excelsior Hotel. Those sporty wood teak boat taxi’s are just as much fun getting you there which is a quick twenty minute jaunt from Venice. Imagine going in a city with no cars, just boats that take you everywhere.
