In summer Venice is very hot, so why not visit the city in the colder hours and choose the most refreshing itineraries during the summer heat? For example a walk in the natural oasis WWF Dune degli Alberoni or the Nature Reserve of Ca’Roman or a day at the beach in Lido.
Lido is one of Venetians favourite destinations in summer. Its beaches are charming and elegant and the seabed slopes down gradually thanks to the San Nicolò and Alberoni barriers, so children can take a dip safely. The shape and colour of the many beach huts vary according to the resort, and are nowadays equipped to guarantee a holiday in complete comfort. For those who want to enjoy the sunshine and the sea in peace and quiet, the sandy beaches of San Nicolò, Alberoni or Murazzi are ideal.

July is also the month of festivals: do not miss San Giacomo da l’Orio Festival in mid-July in the Sestiere of Santa Croce. And the month of traditional feasts as The Redentore Feast, which commemorates the end of the plague of 1576 and is an important and typical feast that is still celebrated for its special significance for Venetians on July 15-16.

Like every summer Venezia Jazz Festival will take place with concerts throughout the Metropolitan City until July 29 and Biennale Teatro from July 25 to August 12 at Teatro alle Tese and Teatro Piccolo Arsenale. Do not forget that Palazzo Ducale will be open until 11 pm (last admission 10 pm) every Friday and Saturday until October!
