Overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle? Catch a vaporetto and you'll be on this placid island in no time!
A day of rest.
If at any point the bustle of Venice becomes too much, you have a nearby getaway. This island, not far from the southeast of the city, provides an escape for both Venetians and visitors. To get there, all you have to do is take one of the vaporettos that leave the city continuously. Once you've arrived, the main attraction of this place are the more than twelve kilometres of beach that surround the island. As can be expected, in summer the beach is usually quite busy but this does not stop it from being one of the favourite places to spend a day of rest. On the other hand, there is more to the island than just sand and sea. The walk that shows off both the western and eastern sides of the island are really worthwhile. If not the entire walk, given that it is a considerable distance, it is worth walking at least until its half-way point. To get away from the busiest area, you can take a bus that will take you to the south where you can spend the day eating in a restaurant and seeing the area. The shops here are less oriented to tourism and the views of the Adriatic Sea provide spectacular scenery If you can, walk back through the western area at sunset.
