La Dolce Vita ….. A Summer Dream On The Golden Island Of Lido
average rating of 4.65 based on 20 reviews

Bella apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely- clean and organized - just right for our visit. It is situated close (a few blocks)to both the beach and main street on Lido, grocery is nearby, and vaparetto stop. The beds were comfortable. It was a great place to stay for 3 weeks and we hope to return next year! We had no complaints whatsoever. The warning in other reviews re bug spray being needed if sitting in the garden was appreciated.

We enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Apartment on the wonderful island Lido

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! Just returned from La Dolce Vita where we spent a wonderful week exploring beautiful Venice and the lovely island of Lido. This well appointed and beautifully decorated apartment was perfect for our family of four. Two spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and a large living area with lots of dvds to watch (if you have time). We arrived and was welcomed by Flor and also a complimentary bowl of fruit, bottle of Prosceco and a fully stocked Nespresso coffee machine. The beautiful beach was a few minutes walk away as well as two lovely restaurants. Venice is very easy to reach by water taxi, every ten minutes. We loved our stay at La Dolce Vita and would definitely recommend. The Nichols Family.

Lovely welcome and great apartment. Very convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely week here, going in to Venice daily (recommend weekly vaporetto ticket) as well as spending time on the beach which is close by. A perfect combination of culture, relaxation and delicious Italian food.

We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the garden too.

A peaceful winter break

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a quiet residential part of Lido but just a few minutes from the crowds of San Marco; a perfect place to escape.

We arrived to a nice warm and clean apartment and were greeted with a bottle of Prosecco, a panettone and a bowl full of fruit. A nice welcome.

We'll certainly stay again.

Car: not necessary

The Lido — or Venice Lido — is an 11 kilometres long sandbar in the Venetian Lagoon, a natural barrier dividing the Lagoon from the Adriatic Sea, only a few kilometers wide at its widest point. Home to about 20,000 residents.

At least half the Adriatic side of the island is a sandy beach. In 1857, the first sea bathing facility was set up. 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. The Lido's success and the fascination of Venice nearby made the Lido famous worldwide. Hotels and private summer villas have remained the heart of an island that is still known today as the 'Golden Island'


The Venice Film Festival takes place at the Lido at the end of every August, bringing celebrities from all over the world. an event not to be missed!

The house is located in the same area as the church of St Nicholas, patron of saIlors. All ships arriving and leaving Venice have always passed in front of this church facing the lagoon.. Where still today the acient ceremony of the 'Marriage of the Sea' is celebrated on Ascension day, a tradition that dates back to the middle ages, a ceremony that symbolically wedded Venice to the sea.

Lord Byron also loved Lido, stabling here his 4 horses, he would enjoy endlous gallops along the beaches. A notable swimmer he would also swim from Lido to Venice.

Tuesday morning, is market day on Lido, here you can mingle with the locals buying their wares, everything is available from food to clothes and much more. Stretching along the waterfront of Riva di Corinto, its a beautiful location, on the Venetian Lagoon.

It is also very easy to visit the islands of the Lagoon from Venice, waterbuses depart regularly from Santa Maria Elisabetta, connecting all islands in the Lagoon.
