Lido de Jesolo

As I write this I have been back from my Italian adventures exactly one week, and I am having the worse case of holiday blues. We went on a family holiday to Lido de Jesolo. We have been previously been before twice, once 5 years ago, and also 10 years ago. I have a terrible memory, so when I go back to somewhere from five years ago, I barely remember anything. That was great for me, as I was able to discover a completely new place all over again!

We managed to get a great morning flight out, and landed in Venezia Airport. My mum had organised an airport transfer to our hotel. We stayed in Hotel Harry's for two weeks, and the hotel was in a great location. Lido de Jesolo itself has a 15km long beach which is so beautiful. The hotel itself was nice, nothing special. We opted for the half board option in our hotel, and they offered a variety of food on the menu.

At night we like to be able to go out and not just sit in our hotel room.The resort basically opens up for the holiday season; therefore there are bars upon bars. There is also a great variety of restaurants, you definitely have the opportunity to taste some of the most amazing pasta and pizza ever. Some nights the amount of variety offered walking up and down can actually be quite overwhelming choosing somewhere. However, every night we were able to find somewhere new to stop and have a few cocktails. It is not a particularly expensive place, as like I have said it thrives from the holidaymakers.

The resort itself due to it being 15km long makes it the longest strip in Europe. There is no way you would be able to walk from one end of the strip to the other, due to its enormity. One day when the weather was not too hot, we decided to see how far we could walk. We ended up making lots of pits stops along the way which involved lots of ice cream, drinks and food. We then got the local bus back to our hotel.

The weather most days was late 20's to early 30 degrees. That is hot enough for me, as I burn easy and I hate being a hot, sweaty mess when there is not much breeze. Some days it was milder but we tended to go on day trips on these days, as it is much more pleasant to walk around without the blazing sun on your back all day.

The location of the resort was great as you were able to go on day trips using both the buses and boats to get around you get to see lots of the different islands. I am going to write individual posts on Venice and going around the smaller islands such as Burano and Murano, as I have so much to say about them. There is a lot to see and do, an it differently added an extra special aspect to the holiday. Me and my sister also went on a trip to Aqualandia located in Jesolo itself. This was great and it is a tradition that we take a trip to a waterpark wherever we visit.

Overall, I had a fabulous time relaxing in the sun. We spent most of our days on the beach, as it was just so glorious. Italy is my favourite place to explore, and Lido de Jesolo did not disappoint.
