On the narrow coastal strip between the lagoon of Venice and the mouth of the River Piave lies the beautiful and lively town of Jesolo, a must-go destination for those dreaming of a holiday blissed with sunshine and relaxation, but also fun, shopping, nature and plenty of art and history.
Today it is one of the liveliest seaside resorts in the north-east of Italy as it boasts fifteen kilometers of golden beach with the latest facilities, extremely safe and clean, so much so that Fee Italy (Foundation for Environmental Education) has for a number of years now awarded the 'Blue Flag' to Jesolo, Italy, due to the excellent water quality and the services available, always in tune with nature and the surrounding landscape.
Sea, sun and relaxation are not enough for you? In this case you can have great fun at some of the local beaches or, in between swims in the sea, test your sporting skill with an exciting beach-volley match, because, as you know, sports and entertainment go hand in hand!
Speaking of which, Jesolo, Venice, is a mecca for sport aficionados: football, basketball and tennis matches at the 'Play Village', kart racing in the famous 'Pista Azzurra' track while, for lovers of the chic game of golf, the 'Golf Club Jesolo' has a 900,000 square meters course! And if you love all things water, you certainly cannot fail to spend a day in the best aquatic theme park in Italy, Jesolo Caribe Bay by Aqualandia! A magical place where both children and adults can enjoy a unique experience with fun, relaxation and sport in a Caribbean atmosphere!
Those who instead love shopping and partying when on holiday, Jesolo has one of Europe’s largest pedestrian areas, packed with all sorts of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. And those who enjoy shopping at shopping centers can head to the new 'Jesolo Laguna Shopping': an open-air complex with shops ranging from clothes to household items but also restaurants, bars and ice cream parlors. If you have your children with you during your holidays in Jesolo, take them to discover the magical underwater world of Sea Life in Jesolo located right next to Laguna Shopping: here you can admire over 3000 sea creatures during a 60 minute-long tour... it will feel like swimming in the blue deep surrounded by many colorful fish, without however, getting wet!
Not far from Jesolo beach is the ‘McArthur Glen Designer Outlet’, a true high-fashion shopping city, ideal for those who love to buy designer articles without having to spend a fortune!
In Jesolo you can also immerse yourself in the nature of an area suspended between the sea and the lagoon: bicycle rides, boat trips and walks will let you admire the traditional fishing valleys and the lagoon sandbanks, forming the ideal habitat for many species of marshland birds and a nature reserve where animals and vegetation have been left undisturbed.
In between these natural wonders lies the fascinating ‘Antiche Mura’ archaeological site as a witness of the glorious ancient times of Jesolo, where there are also the remains of the old Cathedral of Santa Maria, allegedly the second largest church in the Republic of Venice, and the marvelous mosaic floor of the prior early Christian church. Torre Caligo, an ancient fortress on the banks of the Caligo canal is imbued with medieval charm. If you wish to learn more about the ancient roots of Equilium (the ancient name of Jesolo deriving from Latin 'equus', meaning city of horses) we suggest you visit the Sala Tiepolo of the APT of Jesolo and the Civic Museum of Natural History with around 15,000 exhibits.
Jesolo also enjoys a truly strategic position: it is the ideal location from where to go on exciting guided excursions to Venice and the lagoon islands. What better way to make your holiday truly unique then mixing relaxing days on Lido di Jesolo beach with boat trips to discover the wonders of our lagoon? You can choose a fascinating day tour to the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello or Venice departing from Jesolo - Punta Sabbioni or, if you don't want to have to have to find your way around the public transport network to reach the historical lagoon city, you can opt for a comfortable trip on board a motorship, with a local guide who will tell you stories and anecdotes on our beloved region.
