Lido di Iesolo Things to Do
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...more
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...more
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,...more
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...more
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...more
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...more

Lido di Iesolo Restaurants
Well, what to write about this restaurant? This is a difficult place to review as it is not a top restaurant it is quite mediocre. But a very good thing was the fact that this restaurant was absolutely buzzing and fully seated every night but it's so well run we didn’t wait for more than 5 minutes to be seated. Besides that the service was...more
Lido di Jesolo is well known for the being a very touristic sea side resort established out of a health resort. But Lido di Jesolo is also known for one ice cream parlour, namely the Gelateria Luna. This particular ice cream parlour provides a gastronomic ice cream indulgence to children (and adults) of all ages. Many of the flavours are found...more
I think that this restaurant is mainly a tourist trap. I went there with my uncle to eat fried seafood. Well, I am actually not fond of fried seafood, but the one I had at Trocadero was so so. Quality of the seafood was ok, but prices are really EXPENSIVE and I don't think this restaurant is worth going. We spent 37 € each and our menu...more
Lido di Iesolo Nightlife
Wondering what to pack for your next vacation? Yes, we always have some stress related to this issue. As an experienced traveler I always combine some days to relax with some days to explore the surroundings, beautiful historical cities or hiking the amazing National Parks. So I can easily say that whenever I am on vacation, I often want to relax,...more

Lido di Iesolo Transportation
Travelling with (young) kids.
Are you nervous about taking your baby or child on a plane trip? You aren't alone, most parents are nervous about it. We have moved with Iris to Callantsoog by car this holiday and drove some distances by car on when we were there and we learned a few things that hopefully will help you.
Bring books, old favourite toys and new surprise toys. Do remember that balls are not a good idea as they can end up anywhere! Our best buys were definitely books, especially sticker books are great! They can peel the stickers off, are glossy, have thick pages to turn easy, have bright colours and come in endless subjects. They're a nice break from the other books your child might be tired of, too. Put aside fears of setting poor eating habits, and bring on the snacks! We told Iris: “Welcome to the world of boredom eating."
Toy bars meant for stroller use are a big help in the car, as they often feature toys plus a snack cup, and are big and easy for you to grab from the front seat for refills. During the car trip it’s always a good idea to play a game and sing some songs. It sounds rather easy, but it does work!
We only have one last statement! Just do it! Don’t be afraid that it might go wrong. We have learned this, because we have been travelling with Iris from the beginning. She was only 6 weeks young when we had our first short vacation and stayed in a hotel. Iris has been used to it rather fast and (maybe because of it) has always been an easy kid to get along with.Related to:

Lido di Iesolo Local Customs
I guess we all agree on this on; there is nothing more exciting than going travelling - exploring another country, experiencing a different culture, travelling around in new ways, sampling the local cuisine and chatting to the local people for a different perspective on life.However during our travels we learned that there is one certain thing that...more
Let’s make no secret of it. We both like a nice cold glass of beer. Being at our travel pace is always a challenge to find a beer we like, which reflects our taste of having a beer. At Cavallino (and this probably counts for our entire surrounding of Cavallino-Treporti) it was rather difficult. We found out that there are a few local beers, only...more
Maybe it sounds a bit weird, but as an experience traveler I know that you every now and then need this kind of information in advance: electricity in Italy is 230 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. If you travel to Italy with a device that does not accept 230 Volts at 50 Hertz, you will need a voltage converter.There are three main types...more
Lido di Iesolo Warnings and Dangers
For years, we have all been told of the importance of water. The general guideline has been to drink 2 litre of water each day. For a person who is not living an active lifestyle this may be enough, but if you are physically active, you need more water than that. That is especially true if you are hiking in the Callantsoog area due to the fact the...more
Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, the catchy title of the 1992 bestseller by John Gray, succinctly expresses an ancient dilemma. What--if anything--do men's and women's brains do differently?The general statement that men and women respond and behave differently under the same circumstances is true; For example, from the crib, male babies...more

Lido di Iesolo Tourist Traps
The dinner we had at the Ristorante Piave was quite mediocre and not something to advise you to do. To us this just tells the story for the entire area of Via Bafile. It is very touristic and truly crowded. Therefore the restaurants need to speed up their meals in order to have a meal for everyone who wants one. After this disappointing dinner we...more
For us visiting the Via Bafile was just an opportunity to have a look for a nice restaurant for dinner that night. We arrived around 5 o’clock in Lido di Jesolo, parked the car and walked our way to the square called Piazza Brescia. From that point we entered the street Via Bafile. We hiked our way up east and did not expect this huge shopping...more
We have heard that Lido di Jesolo counts as one of Italy’s best summer destinations, but not all the tourist pursuits are related to Jesolo’s reputation of seaside resort. Beaches and sports aside, Jesolo remains a shoppers’ paradise, which is no overstatement, taking into account the resort boasts of being crossed by the one of the world’s largest...more

Lido di Iesolo Off The Beaten Path
Most people try to rush Venice on a budget so they end up missing some of the highlights in a whirlwind. The key to seeing Venice properly is a game plan, you must know what you want to see before setting out. For example: we wanted to see the Squeoro di San Trovaso (the most picturesque gondola workshop of Venice) and planned our hike in the...more
To be honest, I was quite thrilled to show the amazing city of Venice to Paulien and mostly to my children. It is probably a must see location if you like to travel, Venice is unique and you must have been there once in your lifetime at least! For Venice, the canals have always been the natural means of getting around. I knew for instance that in...more
Before we visited the city of Venice I could say that I was already been to this beautiful city twice. Therefore I already knew that the best way to explore the city of Venice is by foot and the second best way is also by foot! Besides giving you the opportunity to roam the narrow streets and piazzas, it is the quickest way too. If you really want...more
Lido di Iesolo Favorites
Christmas sand Nativity exhibit
Favorite thing: Every year since 2002 Jesolo have a famous Christmas event. Several sculptor from all over the world come and build those amazing real size statues about the Nativity and more.
This year the statues represent the ancient local job such as boat builder, construction builder, ferrier, bakery shop and more.
The detail they are able to impress in the sand are amazing! I still wonder how they make sure the all thing does not fall apart!
The exhibit is in a covered area and the admission is free of charge, but the line to get in can be very long. Wear something very warm ad standing in the freezing air can be really unconfortable, especially if it is windy.
