Hotel pierIf you're traveling with children or looking for a resort experience during the summer, try staying at a villa or resort hotel near the water or in one of the Lido's residential neighborhoods. Many of these hotels have private gardens where you can relax after a long day of sightseeing.

In the listings below, we've focused mostly on hotels that are within walking distance of the Lido S.M.E. waterbus station. (Other villa and resort hotels on the Lido may be too far from the center to be convenient unless you have a car.)
