What do you think of when you hear Venice? It could be the cobbled streets or the gondoliers dressed in striped shirts, the huge pizza slices or the magnificent art galleries. Venice is one of the most romantic cities on earth, that’s for sure, but the Floating City is not often thought of as a beach holiday.
But we’ll let you in on a little secret: There’s a whole side of Venice you might not have seen yet, and it’s well worth checking out. We suggest escaping the tourist bustle of the city and heading to one of its nearby beaches, to find solace in sun, sea and sand, and see a side of this beautiful place you just don’t see in the city. The best part? All of these beaches can be reached by a quick ferry or train. Here are the best beaches in Venice.
