    Piazza G. Carducci - Nice modern square.

    by Jerelis Written Mar 26, 2014
    Overview at Piazza G. Carducci.

    For sure the street Via Bafile is one huge tourist trap. It’s one (very long) street with on both sides shops, shops and even more shops. This is what my three ladies came for and they had a great time. But at one point we arrived at the square Piazza G. Carducci and that was a bit more the places I like to visit. Don’t, however, expect an old square with beautiful old mansions and great facades. Still the Piazza G. Carducci has enough to offer.

    The buildings surrounding the square are very nice and the pavement is quite beautiful and gives the Piazza G. Carducci a nice and intimate feeling. Of course the amazing fountain with the coloured water does add atmosphere to the square. There are a few sales men trying to sell you their products and some shops are worth for window shopping. We had a great ice scream at the Gelateria Luna and while we were enjoying it, we sat down at the edge of the fountain and had a great look around watching the people go by. The Piazza G. Carducci was a very nice stop during a night of shopping with the ladies.

    Piazza Brescia - Green heart in the city.

    by Jerelis Written Mar 26, 2014
    Arriving at Piazza Brescia.

    When we visited Lido di Jesolo during the evening I knew that the ladies wanted to have night of shopping and I was only the person to drive them to their shops LOL. It is always a challenge to find a nice parking spot when you’re entering a new city to explore. In Lido di Jesolo that was no problem, we drove the Via VIII Matiri road and immediately spotted a rather large parking lot and decided to park the car right there. It is place you have to pay for, but the rate is mild and was no issue.

    After parking the car we walked our way up to the coastline and wanted to find the main road Via Bafile, where all the shops were situated. To our great surprise we first saw a nice square with beautiful flowers and trees. Definitely the green heart of the city and we saw the sign that this square was named Piazza Brescia. We were truly amazed as we did not expect this right here. We arrived at a time the darkness started to fall in and the street light added great atmosphere to the scene. We walked a bit in the little park and noticed a nice fountain right in the middle of the park. We also saw some locals playing card on a table they brought themselves and we simply loved it. The park is too small to make it a must visit, but we had a nice time strolling around and admire the vibe of this nice green heart in the city center.

    Beach area - Tinto de Verano.

    The only downside to visiting the beaches Lido di Jesolo is it gets very busy. But just arrive in time and you will find a parking place for the car and a good spot on the sandy beach anyway. We enjoyed ourselves very much by swimming, writing messages in the sand, have a homemade picnic, threw some frisbee, building sand castles, read some book, did some sun bathing, we looked for seashells, watched the sunset or just did some daydreaming and relaxation. Just an ordinary day at the beach. Of course, the truth of the matter is that going to the beach is usually fun no matter what you do there because you're getting away from real life and enjoying a scenic travel destination. It's just nice to know that there are plenty of things to do besides suntan and swim while you're there!

    Finally I can say that there are a lot of shops, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of the beach. Right here you can sit under a sunshade and enjoy a Tinto de Verano (red wine with lemonade and lots of ice) and a plate of sardines, or you could try the lobster paella. Do keep in mind that the restaurants are on the pricy side …

    If you like to stay near stunning coastlines on your camping holidays, Italy is an excellent choice of destination. The country has two seaboards to choose from: the Mediterranean and the Adriatic Sea, all with an exceptional climate and a coastline which offers a whole world of possibilities. And particularly if you're one of those people who believe that the beach is not just for lying around. In addition to the great beaches and excellent campsites at these destinations, there are many attractive coastal towns to choose from for your camping holidays in Italy. These are ideal places to visit on day trips, and whether you want to enjoy chic sophistication or historical elegance there is sure to be a town that suits your needs.

    The coast of the Adriatic Sea of Italy stretches from Trieste to the most south eastern tip of the Italian peninsula and is rich and varied with long sandy beaches, marshlands and rocky outcrops. Right here at the north east coast of Italy you will find Lido di Jesolo. Coupled with an exceptionally warm climate, this coastline has long attracted large numbers of overseas and domestic tourists. But most of all, a visit to this region is not complete without having a look at the beach area of Lido di Jesolo, because the long and sandy beaches stretching along the Adriatic coast are a great place for relaxation and water sports. We stayed at a campsite near the beach of Cavallino which is close to Lido di Jesolo, so for us it was quite common to stay some days at the beaches of Lido di Jesolo and enjoying the day.

    Beach area- An amazing beach.

    The beach area during the evening.

    Because we stayed at Cavallino for the summer we were able to visit more than just one beach. In our first few days we ended up at the beach at Cavallino, which is without doubt one of the most attractive beaches I have visited. From some locals we heard that this particular beach has been regularly voted one of the best places to visit in this particular part of the Adriatic coast. But don’t they say that all to the tourists? LOL

    Cavallino is a quiet location with low-rise apartments and villas in residential areas along the main road towards Lido de Jesolo and around the many campsites. The long, sandy beach stretches north to Lido de Jesolo and south towards Punta Sabbion where the typical rocky coves and dramatic coastal scenery are typical of the area. This means more than 15 kilometers long and around 50 meters wide. This amazing beach temped us to travel to Lido di Jesolo, which is only a few kilometers away from the village of Cavallino with easy access from the coast road and plenty of parking space. Be aware that the beaches at Lido di Jesolo are much, much more crowded and this means lying at beds very close to your neighbour. Surprisingly for the Adriatic coast, there are some decent waves when the Levante or Tramontana winds are blowing, making it good for surfing, windsurfing or kite surfing. There is plenty of space for volleyball and other beach games, and you can sign up for boat and diving trips to the some small isles further up the coast.

    Visit jesolo, italy to view sand statues

    For the past 9 years the city of Jesolo, which is across the bay from Venice, holds a sand castle statue exhibit during Christmas. The exhibit features life size statues of stores of the Nativity but it also includes other subjects, this year being Nelson Mandela, and scenes of workers from the Medieval era.
    The exhibit is held through January and is in the center of Jesolo. There is no charge, and the only thing negative I could say about this exhibit is that the line is long to enter. The statues are crafted by internationally known sculptors and the life size statues are very beautiful. You can see this from the photos I have included below.
    There is parking located 5 minutes away.

  • Old-fashioned, tired resort

    by Toubna Written Apr 21, 2009

    Hum....very disappointed by Lido di Jesolo. We chose to stay four days there after visiting Venice. But we found it to be a good resort for old ladies who like to walk by the seaside and browse tacky shops but otherwise quite boring.

    All of the shops seems to be selling the same "made in China" plastic stuff and any other goods (clothes, watches, sunglasses) were of unknown brands and were very cheap looking. In the end, quite good for the wallet as you are not tempted to buy anything at all.

    Same for the restaurants: lots of tourist traps (why would you go to Italy to eat a beacon sandwich or sausages with fries?) rather than good quality Italian restaurants. Only the Italian ice-creams / Gelato parlours were great. We ended up buying our own (local and yummy) food at the supermarket and cooking home.

    We were surprised by the lack of children playgrounds. We ended up just taking our kids to the beach which is basically a very long stretch of sand surronded by hundreds of hotels. Sure the kids had a great time digging the sand on the beach, but we were a bit bored. The beach front is swamped by medium-sized hotels with lots and lots of chairs and parasols. Not very natural looking. No great snack bars or restaurants directly overlooking on the beach either.

    All in all, we felt that the resort was too built-up and that natural beauty of the seashore had been destroyed. This meant lots of noise and traffic, including at night.

    I don't think this is a good resort for nature lovers and/or people looking for a true Italian holiday. In fact, it could well have been located on the Spanish Costa Del Sole (equally built-up) that we would have not notice. There is an air of fakeness and cheapness that definitely put us off.
