So in hopes of laying around on a beach for a day near Venice, we took the ferry to Lido to find our way to Alberoni Beach. According to what I had read, we were to expect golden sand stretches with sand dunes. Instead, we found a pretty desolate, trash ridden beach with derelict buildings along shore. Kind of interesting photographically, but not ideal for beach bumming it.
We ended up settling on laying out on the rocky jetty as our beach dreams were crushed.
