Italy’s treat for beach-lovers
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.
