Jesolo, near Venice, is today a splendid tourism area for families with children, young people, couples and senior citizens, but its history is an ancient one, dating back to the time of the Romans, before the birth of the Venetian Republic.
Unfortunately, during the First World War, Jesolo paid a high price, with the destruction of immense works of art like the Romanesque Cathedral, whose ruins are the only remaining testimony of its ancient splendour.
Today Jesolo offers a myriad of opportunities for you and your whole family to enjoy yourself, relax, play sports or visit the inland area of the Veneto.
There are also international events, theme parks, concerts, shows and traditional festivals.
Thanks to its marvellous beaches, the Adriatic Sea and Lido di Jesolo has been an important International tourist destination since the years following the war.
- an ideal place for families who want a safe, peaceful seaside holiday with their children;
- synonym of entertainment and culture : there is a packed calendar of shows and events all year.
Adria Holiday suggests to everyone who decide to spend a holiday at our Village San Francesco in Caorle or in our holiday homes in Jesolo a sightseeing tour to discover some of the most beautiful cities in Italy and in the world: Venice and the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello.
Venice is a treasure that all the world would like to have. If you walk around the wonderful lagoon city, you will be enchanted by the charm of some evocative streets, called "calle", and after having visited the beautiful Piazza San Marco with its famous basilica, you will reach Palazzo Ducale and you can stop to admire Venice from the bridge Ponte dei Sospiri.
Venice is a masterpiece of a city situated between earth and water. You can discover its wonders walking on the bridges or sailing along the canals on a typical romantic "gondola" or on a "vaporetto"
along Canal Grande as far as the beautiful bridge "Ponte di Rialto".
By steamer you can also reach the islands of Murano and Burano. In Murano you can observe directly the old traditional art of glassmaking and the unique wonderful objects that the glass-blowers can make.
Burano is called the island of laces, in Italian "merletti", because this art has been passing on since a long time, since when the old ladies worked in front of the doors to make laces until nowadays.
