Principe Palace Hotel
Housed inside a charming Venetian mansion, Hotel Principe Palace was one of the first hotels in Lido di Jesolo. Inside, you’ll find lots of vintage touches, from wood-panelling to red-leather sofas. But you’ll discover modern amenities, too, such as the recently-redesigned rooftop pool, which boasts a water fountain, a raised sundeck, and is surrounded by colour-changing lights. Head to the buffet restaurant on the fourth floor where you’ll find nightly candlelit dinners and fantastic views. Hotel Principe Palace is located on the Central Piazza Mazzini – head across the square and you’ll discover a beautiful private beach.
Overview of the Venetian Riviera
Often, holidays to Italy conjure up images of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the cypresses and hills of Tuscany, and huge bowls of pasta. But did you know that it’s also an amazing beach destination? Head to the Venetian Riviera, on Italy’s north-eastern coast, and you’ll find miles of unspoilt, sandy beaches. The region’s capital, Venice, is a city with old-world charm, criss-crossed with a network of canals. But the most popular seaside resort is Lido di Jesolo, which has the longest beach in mainland Italy. If you choose to base yourself here, a stay at Hotel Principe Palace comes highly recommended.
Things to do in the Venetian Riviera
If you’re staying at Hotel Principe Palace, you’re right in the centre of Lido di Jesolo. Enjoy checking out this picturesque square, where you’ll find street performers, open air cafés and fountains. Stroll down to the weekly market in the old town to buy freshly baked bread, local Piave cheese and antique souvenirs. Naturally, you’ll spend a lot of time at Jesolo’s Blue Flag beach. Relax on the sand here, or have a go at the many water sports on offer. You can even book a sailing course, if that’s your thing. Venice is just a 45-minute drive away, and we highly recommend a day trip to the city. During your visit, you can experience a gondola ride – and while you’re here, be sure to check out the ornate Venetian masks that the city is famous for. You can’t go wrong with trip to the Venetian Riviera. Eating delicious pizza and pasta, hanging out in Venice, and relaxing on the beach – what’s not to love?
