Hailed as the king of the Venetian Riviera, the stunning Italian seaside town bursts with a lively ambience and fabulous tourists facilities. The sun-drenched sands of the beaches are perpetually awash with beaming tourists and bustling beach bars, while further inland you’ll find peaceful boulevards, glittering marinas and a smattering of traditional restaurants. Adrenaline-fuelled adventures are available to punctuate the beachside bliss and the close proximity of Venice means the fairy-tale city can be explored during a delightful daytrip.
The resort’s primary allure is undoubtedly the golden sprawl of silken sand, which tumbles down in an azure ocean perfect for bathing and water sports. Within the town, modern attractions provide exciting entertainment for both adults and children; The Sea Life Aquarium is a magnificent marine museum that houses thousands of sea creatures in habitats strikingly similar to their natural ones. Spend an afternoon wandering the colourful exhibits and discovering more about the ocean’s astounding eco-systems.
Tropicarium Park follows a similar wildlife theme by housing over 400 species of animal, including cold-blooded reptiles and playful primates. Ferocious animals such as sharks and crocodiles neighbour cut critters such as monkeys and meerkats.
An integral activity on any Jesolo itinerary is a visit to the Museo di Storia Naturale, a magnificent museum that houses an impressive collection of stuffed animals, some of which are now extinct.
Take advantage of the town’s prime seafront location by indulging in some of the sublime seafood on offer; Ristorante Da Omar is a restaurant dedicated to serving the finest and freshest fish in the area. Crispy cod, battered whitebait and lemon drizzled prawns are just a few of the seaside specialities diners can expect to enjoy in this exquisite eatery that has won critical acclaim.
