Legacy[ edit ] The term Lidooriginally coming from this island, is used to refer to certain types of outdoor swimming pools especially in Great Britain, and the "Lido deck" on a cruise ship.
The Adriatic Sea is fairly clean and warm, ideal for children, with only the occasional jellyfish to disturb swimming. The Excelsior is a spectacular hotel set in an amazing location with some of the friendliest staff I have ever come across on my many!
Hotel was very clean and nice and a wonderful place to stay. Apart from getting kicked out of the relaxing seats on the beach front because I will not pay 12 euros for a small bottle of beer.
Great free water taxi to the main Venice area, that was so special. The setting was super and having its own pontoon and exclusive riva boat to take you into Venice was an unforgettable highlight of the hotel.
Alexa, United Kingdom Gorgeous view of the sea! The island is fairly easy to get around on and there is good boat service to the other islands. The Lido's success and the fascination of Venice nearby made the Lido famous worldwide.
This was the first time that anything like it had been seen in Europe and soon, the lido became "The Lido", a byword for a beach resort. Alberoni at the southern end is home to the golf course.
These include the renowned Hotel Excelsior and the Grand Hotel des Bains, setting for Thomas Mann 's classic novel Death in Venicecurrently undergoing major renovation.
