This view of the northern part of Lido Island (Lido di Venezia) is from the Venetian Lagoon.
The Lido is an 11 km long sandbar located in Venice, Northern Italy, home to about 20,000 residents. Lido was formed by river sediment and was later man made to protect Venice’s lagoon from the sea. The Venice Film Festival takes place at the Lido every September.
On the right can be seen the early 17th century baroque style tower of the Church of St. Nicholas (Chiesa di San Nicolò)
The whole of Venice and its Lagoon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
