Lido di Jesolo, a popular seaside resort town, is situated within the metropolitan city of Venice, Italy. It is well known for its long sandy beach and vibrant nightlife, and it serves as a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer months. Lido di Jesolo is situated on the Adriatic coast close to Venice, making it a convenient location for visitors looking to enjoy both the beach and the historic city of Venice.

The region surrounding Jesolo has been featured in cartographic works dating back to the 14th century or earlier, crafted by renowned cartographers such as Pietro Vesconte, Fra Mauro, Benedetto Bordone, and Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, among others. These prior charts provide insight into the development of the Venetian Lagoon over time.

Jesolo has a history that dates back to ancient Roman times when it was known as Equilium, meaning "city of horses." The area was largely abandoned during the Middle Ages due to the decline of the Roman Empire and encroachment of the surrounding marshlands.

During the era of the Republic of Venice, which lasted from the 8th to the 18th century, the Venetians began to drain and reclaim the land for agriculture and fishing. The first settlements were established in the 19th century, and the town was renamed Cavazuccherina.

The opening of the first beach resort in 1911 marked the beginning of tourism in Lido di Jesolo. However, it was not until the post-World War II period that the town experienced a significant boom in tourism. During the 1950s and 1960s, rapid development and urbanization transformed Lido di Jesolo into one of the most popular seaside resorts in Italy.
