    Sunset Sant Erasmo Venice

    Sant Erasmo is a nice place to view the sun setting over the Lagoon, Venice and its nearby islands- whether You're staying on Sant' Erasmo, or catching a late moto sciaffo back to Venice or one of the nearby lagoon islands such as Murano.

    My first night on Sant' Erasmo, from the terrace of my hostel I saw that the sun was starting to set,
    so ran with my camera to the waterside nearby to catch some photos.

    Another night, I just sat on the veranda and enjoyed a chilled beer, while I enjoyed the sunset through the trees, looking over the lagoon. It was so peaceful!

    Torre Massimilano

    Torre Massimilana Sant Erasmo Venezia

    This 19th Century Fort is one of Sant' Erasmos' few landmarks.

    It was originally built by Napoleonic troops, then finished during Austrian occupation.
    Archduke Maximillian sought refuge here (hence it's name!)

    After restoration by the Venice Water Authority, this is now a social centre for the 8,000 inhabitants of the island. Exhibitions are held here. Opening times are limited

    At the time of my visit, it was the 2007 Biennale. There was an exhibition of Emilio Vedovas' work. Vedova was born in Venice in 1919 and died October 2006. He was considered to be one of Italys most important artists following WW2. Mainly self taught, his abstract works were admired worldwide. I'm afraid that I didn't get to see this exhibition.

    The tower is near the beach and a bar/pizzeria.

    The Beach

    Beach Sant Erasmo Venezia
    1 more image

    The small beach on Sant' Erasmo is popular with Italians/Venetians especially at weekends or on public holidays.

    I mistakenly thought that the tiny mud beach near the tower was 'The Beach' I hadn't realised that if I walked a bit further along there was another sandy beach.

    I didn't get chance to sunbathe here, as when I first arrived it was early evening, then the next day I went into Venice.

    If You want to escape the heat of Venice and unwind- this is a pleasant place to come to.

    Near this beach is a Trattoria/bar, selling Pizzas etc, which is reasonably priced, and the Torre Maximillio, which has art exhibitions etc
