Islands of the lagoon, Venice: 31 reviews and 38 photos
Favorite thing: Lido lies in the lagoon, about 1,5km from Saint Mark's, forming an ideal barrier between Venice and the Adriatic. Today it is a famous and elegant bathing resort, but in the middle of the last century there was nothing here at all, apart from Malamocco, the convent of San Nicolo and the military district.
The church of San Nicolo, originally from the 17th century, was the former convent of the Benedictines, today used by the Franciscans. There are two 11th century Byzantine capitals at the entrance to the convent and, next to the 16th century cloister, part of the older one from 14th century.
Nearby to the convent is the 14th century Jewish Cemetery.
