You can get a copy of the route map here: http://www.hellovenezia.com/jspvenezia/htmlincludes/pdf/muoversi.pdf.

Unless you're trying to travel in the middle of the night the boats are very frequent. Even at night there are some boats.
I'm not sure a printed copy of the timetable is available, but the online version is at http://www.actv.it

As for first/last boats it depends on which route. I'd suggest you play with the online timetable. I'd be surprised if you think you'll be stranded anywhere :-)

Travel Tips for Lido

Great views of Venice on vaporetto ride

by victorwkf

When you are going from Lido to Venice via the vaporetto (water bus), you will get to see very good views of the Venetian lagoon, especially the beautiful buildings and architecture of Venice as the vaporetto approaches the island. Get your camera ready, and you can go up to the standing area of the vaporetto to take your photos because there is open space here unlike the sitting area where there are glass windows.

Entrance Gates

by 36waterfalls

I love details in 'architecture' and I found quite a few on Lido. Like the gates of this mansion or the gates to the park by the canal that crosses Lido from the Excelsior towards Laguna Veneto. Thought I'd share that with you!

Reaching the Adriatic Sea

by victorwkf

One of the significant moments of my honeymoon in Europe (June 2007) is to finally reach the Adriatic Sea at Lido beach. My wife and I started our honeymoon in Vienna where we experience the history and architecture of this great city, then to Salzburg and the Austrian Alps area to experience the mountains, waterfalls, valleys etc of Europe, then to Venice to see this beautiful historical city with its many canals, architecture, lagoons etc and finally reaching the sea at Lido after about 3 weeks of travel. The only disappointment was that it was rather cloudy and we did not see a beautiful sunset at the Adriatic Sea while at Lido beach.

Liberty style at Lido Venice

by luca68

What happened, in fact, back in those years sounds incredible for/due to all the circumstances that have been mentioned above. It was in the years when "art nouveau" in various sectors, but especially architecture, was reaching maximum levels of approval in Italy (later than the rest of Europe) from architects who found it difficult, however, to find the necessary conditions of liberty in projecting and building due to the limited objectives that always required an already-established centre. In those years, however, the Lido, on the contrary, was actually emerging as a large seaside resort and this had led the entrepreneurial middle class, in particular Venetian (but not only), to purchase large tracts of land to build housing that was worthy of their level. They were favoured in this by the fact that this land cost very little because by then it consisted of neglected vegetable patches - compared to what they had been used for over centuries - given that their old owners were discovering how much more advantageous it was to use them for tourism activities, which at the time were undergoing major development.
That high inflow of customers and the almost complete freedom of planning in an almost deserted environment allowed many illustrious architects of the period to test out, on the Lido, the originality of that "art nouveau" that had been called "Liberty" in Italy. This application was not to be, however, a copy of foreign models that had already been tried out, because it was strongly influenced by the large architectural tradition of Venice. In fact, the Venetian style (in its diverse Romanesque, Byzantine and Gothic variants) was to be the basis of almost all the villa projects. The "liberty" aspect was to take shape not so much in the internal construction project as in the decoration of the external façade and the railings surrounding the garden. Or, at times, in the sense of complete freedom of creative expression, of genuine constituent eclecticism.

Lido Festival Cinema since 1932

by luca68

... August 6th, 1932, on the terrace of Hotel Excelsior, Lido, screening Rouben Mamoulian's "Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde": here was the birth of Venice Film festival. 25 film selected, in the first Mostra, representing 7 countries. The choice was made by Luciano De Feo, director general of the "Istituto Internazionale per la Cinematografia Educativa", by proxy of the Biennale Secretary General Antonio Maraini. Italy was represented by Mario Camerini's Gli uomini che mascalzoni, whereas Ren? Clair's "A nous la libert?" was outstanding among French films. The Mostra didn't award any prize but a participation diploma.
