Lido was lovely but the tour lacked character

The tour of lido was lovely to get away from the hustle and bustle of Venice. The tour guide lacked some enthusiasm at times and used an iPad for a lot of the tour, gathering the group around to just watch and listen. Unfortunately there just wasnt much to look at Lido, but nice for a half day on the bike. Slightly pricey for this!

A fun way of learning some history as well as sightseeing while exercising.
