"Things to bring to Sant' Erasmo" Sant Erasmo Packing List Tip by suvanki
Sant Erasmo What to Pack: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Luggage and bags: If staying on Sant'Erasmo it is a 10 minute walk to Il Latto Azzuro - I ended up pulling my (heavy) case on wheels (This was my last destination in a 12 day trip to Italy) along the road in the heat of the June sun. If You phone ahead, the staff will collect You in their mini bus.
For a Day visit - a Day sac to carry your camera, food, drink etc. There is one pizzeria/bar (and a restaurant plus a small general store - which I didn't see) so bring food and drink (and anything else needed for Your day out ).
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: comfy walking shoes, or suitable for cycling. Sant' Erasmo is quite exposed, so clothing to protect from the sun, and a warmer top for when those breezes hit the shoreline.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: No pharmacy on Sant' Erasmo, so bring all essential medication with You - carry enough in case You're delayed getting back to Your hotel in Venice - bad weather/Vaporetto strikes could happen - it's only 25 mins away by vaporetto, not as if You're in the middle of no - where, but if You've left an asthma inhaler, insulin etc. in your hotel room expecting to be back 'on time' it could be a problem.
Sun protection, mossie repellent etc.
Photo Equipment: Whatever You need to capture the scenes across the lagoon, sunsets, birds etc. I'm not sure of the opening times of the one shop on the island, or if it stocks film or batteries etc.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: I'm not sure if camping is allowed on Sant'Erasmo. There is a small beach, for sun bathing, swimming. Kayaks can be hired from Il Latto Azurro. Bikes can be rented from near the Vaporetto station and at Il Latto Azurro
Miscellaneous: Binoculars, for views of the neighbouring islands, birds etc.
Books, art equipment, puzzles, radio/ i-pod etc - If staying on the island, there is little to do, so this is your chance to catch up on your reading etc, and chill out. Il Latto Azurro has books, but they were mainly in Italian.
