Discover the Lido

The Russo Palace Hotel overlooks the lagoon of Venice, immersed in the romantic ambiance of the island of Lido, a place that mere words cannot describe such is the poetry and beauty of the landscapes, suspended between the water and the earth where time seems to slow down and nature offers a unique experience.

Piazzale Santa Maria Elisabetta, the commercial center of Lido and the point of arrival for the water taxis, is just five hundred meters from Russo Palace Hotel and the beach cabanas. This was a favorite spot of the European nobility a century ago and, today, travellers in search of peace, relaxation and the excellent services of the historic bathing facilities come here to enjoy the beach.

The Lido also offers splendid nature trials that lead to the oasis of Alberoni, a prestigious golf club beloved by many golf fans and the sophisticated Mostra d’Arte Cinematografica Internazionale, otherwise known as the Venice Film Festival, that takes place every September, when the streets of the island come alive with events and celebrities from the world of the arts and culture.

Venice, just a few minutes by boat from Lido, needs no introduction. It is the most romantic city in the world and perhaps the most beautiful. In any case, it is the most original and enchanting. Piazza San Marco, the Rialto bridge, the island of Giudecca and quiet neighborhoods like Cannaregio and Castello tells the stories of the past, of art and of the soul of the Serenissima.
