Jesolo is a coastal urban area located north of Venice nestled between the rivers Piave and Sile. The 13-kilometre long town resides between Eraclea and Cavallino-Treporti and is notably one of Italy’s longest beaches. A designation of the areas Jesolo Central and Jesolo Lido separates the beach area from the central town structures. Jesolo’s glorious oceanfront opportunities account for its tourism-fuelled economy.
Jesolo Lido boasts the majority of attractions including the Aqualandia, the largest waterpark in Europe, Tropicarium Park, Golf Club Jesolo, Play Village, and reputable dining options that embrace the local prevalence of fish. There are also discos, bars, and cinemas to add to the appeal and numerous original Italian-style pizza joints.
Jesolo is accessible by bus via routes that run from both the Venice and Treviso airports. The Jesolo Lido station serves as an access hub to the main street and beach. The A4 motorway allocates vehicular traffic into the city. Walking and biking are the most popular forms of transportation around Jesolo.
The history of Jesolo is rooted in accounts of barbarian tribes and prolific horse breeders, once known as Equilium, the "place of horses". Tourism flooded the economy after WWII which both blossomed the town and created an unrestricted construction that beatifically hampers portions of the seafront to this day.
