I think there is a beach at Venice Lido, a short boat or road trip from Venice proper.

There are loads of things to do in Venice rather than go to the beach.

Have you seen the water in Venice? I`m not sure I`d venture to a beach anywhere near that murky green stuff. Seriously! The gondola driver (you have to take a gondola, BTW!) in Venice told us they could swim in the water up until the 1940s or so, and then it just became too polluted.

If it`s beaches you want, try to make it down to the Amalfi coast. The most breathtaking water I`ve ever seen in my life!

Dear Friend,

i can only suggest a tourist guide for italy which give you phone number to contact directly hotel and restaurant. I'm shure you will be able to find a very convenient accommodation in italy.

The guide is aviable at http://www.italynet.it

Sincerely

Gino
