There are beach holidays and then there are culture holidays, but this fantastic Omega holiday just happens to be both. You'll be staying at one of a choice of hotels with half board in Lido di Jesolo, a pretty Italian town with a zoo and aquarium, boat cruises, a lovely shopping piazza, lots of cafés, restaurants and discos, and a very splendid and very long sandy beach.
The sprawl of Venetian islands lie in a large lagoon, gated from the sea by a chain of long lidos connecting two headlands. Lido di Jesolo sits behind the northern headland, a long spur which boasts the aforementioned 15 km sandy beach, but best of all, it's only an hour's drive round the mainland to Venice. On our included 'Venice & The Islands of the Lagoon' excursion, you'll get to see this magnificent city and two of its most well–known islands with a guide. Also included is an excursion to the town of Cortina and the majestic Dolomites mountains, and optional excursions to Verona & Lake Garda, and Treviso with wine tasting, are available to book in resort if you wish.

Saturday Check in at your chosen airport for your flight to Venice Marco Polo, where on arrival we will transfer you to hotel in Lido di Jesolo for check in and free time before dinner and the first of seven nights' stay.
Sunday Breakfast, and then a welcome meeting will introduce you to the area and give you the opportunity to book extra optional excursions. After that, the day is at leisure in Jesolo until dinner.
Monday Today we enjoy our first full–day excursion, to Venice & The Islands of the Lagoon. We stop in Venice first where you'll see some of the famous sights, then take a vaporetto across the Lagoon to the islands of Burano, known for its colourful houses (said to guide the fishermen home in heavy fog) and lace industry, and Murano, world–famous for its glass manufacturing and featuring a Glass Museum in the Palazzo Giustinian. You never see ancient Romans in movies holding glass goblets, but they did exist, and you can see some here. A must for lovers of fine arts and crafts.
Tuesday A free day, or if you prefer you can book today's optional excursion to Verona and Lake Garda with your tour representative in resort.
Wednesday It's time to head for the mountains today on our excursion to Cortina d'Ampezzo in the Dolomites. Cortina is a Winter Olympics town, jet–set resort and scene of a Bond movie (remember Roger Moore skiing onto a bobsleigh run, chased by ice–spiked motorcyclists with machine–guns?). Even non–Bond fans will appreciate the Dolomites – a unique range of huge, silvery–grey mountains, most over 10,000ft, with dizzying drops, canyons and karst formations, and said to be the most beautiful mountain range in the world. We start with a walking tour of Cortina and some free time, then relocate to Lake Misurina, a famous beauty spot, before returning to the hotel for in time for dinner.
Thursday & Friday Free days at leisure in resort. On Thursday you can join the Treviso and wine tasting excursion if you wish, or you may decide you'd like to go back to Venice for some further exploration time on one of the days, which you can do under your own steam from Jesolo. There are a few different options, but one way is to buy a combined bus and boat ticket† which costs around €20 return. You take an ATVO bus from Jesolo to Punta Sabbioni (the port for departures to Venice), then an ACTV water bus from the nearby jetty. Alternatively, simply relax and unwind in your resort!
Saturday Breakfast and then transfer to the airport for your flight home.
