The Jewish Chronicle - - JC SPE­CIAL - BY SHAR­RON LIV­INGSTON

THE SEA­SIDE re­sort of Lido di Jesolo, famed for hav­ing the long­est beach in Italy, has long been a Passover f a v o u r i t e . T h e t o wn, wi t h i t s e l e g a n t s h o p s and pedes­trian boule­vards, is on the Adri­atic Sea, to the north east of Venice and a 35-minute drive from Marco Polo Air­port. Lido di Jesolo is also a well-po­si­tioned base for ex­cur­sions to Venice, Verona and Lake Garda.

The name Pari­enti has long been as­so­ci­ated with all-in­clu­sive Passover hol­i­days and this year, Mr Pari­enti, as he is al­ways known, is of­fer­ing a 10-night stay at the re­sort, from April 21 to May 1, at the re­cently ren­o­vated four-star Ho­tel Elpiro, on the seafront.

Su­per­vi­sion is by the Nice Beth Din and all food will be glatt kosher with no kit­niot. The lounge bar will be open for tea, cof­fee, soft drinks and snacks through­out the day.

All com­po­nents for the Sedarim will be pro­vided, to­gether with gen­er­ous kid­dushim on Shab­bat and Yom­tov.

There will be a com­mu­nal Seder
