Venice is defined by water, but that’s no reason to jump into the canal. To find water you can jump into, head to the Aqualandia water park on the mainland spit of Lido di Jesolo. Designed to resemble a Caribbean island retreat, the palm-lined Aqualandia features adventurous water slides, sandy beaches for sport and relaxation, enormous pools, a bungee-jump tower and copious lounge chairs.
In addition to the slides and pools, unique experiences at Aqualandia include dance lessons, an ‘aquagym,’ the on-site nightclub and the numerous live shows. Truly a family friendly venue, Aqualandia offers something to amuse all age groups and certainly provides a break from Italy’s usual tourist trail.
