Venice's Lido Island
Venice's Lido lies slightly south-east of the archipelago's main island and is a long, thin sandbar mass that is just over 10 miles (ca. 16 kilometres) long. There are about 20,000 residents living on the island which is well known for its sandy, golden beaches. The Lido is also home to one of the world's most prestigious and oldest film festivals, known in Italian as "Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica", which sees some of the world's most famous stars convene on this small island. The main thoroughfare on the island is the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta, spanning circa 700 metres from the lagoon to the sea side, and offering a good selection of boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
