In contrast to last year, we can already enjoy hot August-like-weather since the beginning of May this year. When suffering such temperatures the beach is calling louder than normal, so I’m going to present you today one of the less known beaches in Venice, or better on the Lido: Alberoni.
Alberoni is a natural beach on the south side of the Lido – not on the north side where you’ll find the more known touristy beaches (like Blue Moon) – surrounded by a WWF oasis (with 8-10 meter high dunes).
You have the possibility to rent a sunshade (9€/day) or a sunbed (€5/day) in the private bath Bagni Alberoni or to just bring your towel and to relax on the natural beach. It’s maybe not as clean (branches and algae) as Jesolo or the other part of the Lido, but still very inviting and pleases me more than the touristy overcrowded versions.
How to get there
Take the Vaporetto (ACTV lines 1, 2, 10, 5.2, 5.1, 6, 8,14) and get off at the terminal stop Lido S. Maria Elisabetta. With the bus (line A; about 20-30 minutes), stopping directly in front of the vaporetto terminal, continue to the terminal stop Piazzale Bagni Pubblici. Get off and just continue straight ahead on the same street. After 5-10 minutes you’ll reach the beach.

Piacere, mi chiamo Beatrice!
I grew up in the heart of the Alps, in Innsbruck, and decided in 2012 to move from the snowy Tyrolean peaks to the Venetian lagoon.
The travel-bug bit me during an Erasmus stay in France and so I decided after my University studies to start a backpack adventure through Canada.
After one year I said “good bye” to the American continent and moved to Venice (What you do for love!) and searched for a possibility to combine my passion for languages, travelling, culture and reading.
The solution? Four years ago I passed the governmental exam here in Italy to become a licensed tour leader and then a tour guide. Since then I’m guiding visitors through this fascinating city.
