Lonely Planet review
Beach chairs and bronzed lifeguards may seem a world apart from muggy, ripe Venice in summer, but they’re only a 15-minute ferry ride away. Most Lido beaches charge for chair, umbrella and hut rental, but the tanning crowd thins out and rates drop a couple of euros after 2pm. To avoid obligatory fees and throngs of local weekenders, rent a bike and head south to Alberoni and other more pristine beaches.
