With children on the Adriatic - the classic for family and beach holidays never fails to delight
Kilometres of wide, well-kept sandy beaches, modern camping and holiday parks with pool worlds, sports fields, water sports facilities, shopping and top family restaurants - that's what holiday accommodation on the Italian Adriatic offers you. Especially on the Adriatic coast of Veneto, there are large, luxurious holiday parks as well as some smaller, family-run ones, strung out like a string of green pearls.
Almost all Adriatic holiday parks border directly on kilometres of fine sandy beaches
You can relax on a sun lounger under an umbrella, play beach volleyball, go banana boating, sailing or pedal boating. If you want to enjoy a camping holiday with a dog - there are also dog-friendly camping parks and individual dog beaches on the Adriatic.
On the Lido di Jesolo peninsula in Cavallino, Bibione and Caorle, a large selection of holiday parks directly on the beach of the Adriatic awaits you.
If you enjoy a holiday at one of the four- or five-star campsites on the Adriatic, you will find entertainment for the whole family. Many holiday parks on the Adriatic have pools with water play parks, mini and mega slides. In many places you can swim 25- or 50-metre lanes. On land, themed playgrounds, football, basketball or golf courses await you. Bicycle rental, shopping experiences, ice cream bars and restaurants round off the offer of many large holiday parks on the Adriatic.
Wide range of sports, entertainment and leisure activities at campsites on the Adriatic Sea
If you do want to leave your holiday accommodation on the Italian Adriatic to explore the charming surroundings: From Punta Sabbioni you can easily reach Venice without traffic jams - the pedestrian ferry takes you across the lagoon directly to St. Mark's Square in about three quarters of an hour. Or book a pirate ship tour with your kids or take an excursion boat to the lagoon islands of the glass and textile artists, Murano and Burano.
Further east of Venice, towards Trieste, the Italian Adriatic becomes a little rockier in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region
But the picturesque cliffs are repeatedly interrupted by stretches of sand and pebble beaches. The legendary Duino Castle, the cultural city of Trieste, the ancient Roman archaeological site of Aquileia and the island city of Grado are among the highlights of the region.
Southwest of Venice you will also find numerous campsites for families directly on the Adriatic Sea
Large parts of the Po Delta are a nature reserve, and Chioggia lies in the middle of the wide lagoon landscape. The canal-lined old town near the Isola Verde is rightly called Little Venice. A boat trip along the historic palazzi is well worthwhile. The Lido della Nazioni, the Lidos di Pomposa and degli Estensi, the Lido di Spina and other popular Adriatic beaches can be found near Comácchio.
The beaches around Chioggia are also almost all characterised by fine sand
The coast of Emilia-Romagna offers you numerous modern holiday parks on the Adriatic. Visit the gourmet metropolis of Bologna or the city of Byzantine mosaic art, Ravenna. Italy's second largest amusement park, Mirabilandia, is right next door. Inland, discover the green cycling and cultural city of Ferrara. If you travel further "down" the Adriatic coast, the country becomes more mountainous. Further south are the Adriatic coast of the Marche, the mountainous coastal foothills of the Abruzzo National Park, Molise and Puglia. In these regions, mostly smaller holiday parks on the Adriatic Sea await bathers, hikers, cultural tourists and fans of Italian cuisine and lifestyle.
