What to see in Jesolo (beyond sea and beaches)
The most interesting places to visit in a day-trip from our camping
Jesolo is certainly famous for its clean and well-organised beaches, as confirmed by FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education), which has rewarded coastline quality with “Blue Flag beach” for 14 years straight.
But Jesolo is not only about sun, sand and beach beds! There is more than this to enjoy a beautiful city all year long.
Let’s discover what is the best places to see and things to do in Jesolo, among amusement park, shopping and cultural locations.
Aqualandia is a 800000 m2 water and amusement park, one of the best in Italy because of its great and wide offer for the fun of adults and kids.
A few kilometers away from Venice, this water park offers games and entertainment for all the family, from the youngest to the eldest, with pools, slides, bouncy structures, sport fields and much more.
Lately, the park has introduced Virtual Reality for Scaryfalls Slide: a breathtaking experience through a swollen river until a steep waterfall.
Aqualandia is divided into areas:
- Battle intrigo
- Hemingway Square
- Laguna de Oro
- Paradise Lagoon
- Port Hemingway Main Street
- Shark Bay
- TIKI Arena
This is the official website of Aqualandia, for more information and pricing.
You can’t call it “holiday” if you don’t allow yourself an afternoon of shopping!
This is why, among the must-see places in Jesolo, we have to include the wide pedestrian walkway: one of the largest open air commercial area of northern Italy.
After 8.00 pm, Jesolo boardwalk is off-limits for vehicles, for the luck of whom who love walking between sparkling shop lights, restaurants and artisan stands.
