Still Traveling: Lido & the Belle Epoque Adult Virtual Travel Program

September 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Would you like to still travel?  Now you can without leaving your home – just stay still!  Let the Louisville JCC, the Osher Marin JCC & our other Program Partners whisk you away for an “armchair adventure” on an interesting educational & fun live guided group tour in a destination beyond your front door… even beyond the grocery store!  Forget the long masked airplane ride we take you across the time zones by Zoom where a local professional guide from a distant destination will take us to explore site or topics. Live Q&A photos graphics and video clips (when available) will transport us to the destination!  Your ticket purchase helps support our special guests – professional guides – who are mostly or completely out of work.

Lido & the Belle Epoque

In addition to being the location of Laura’s home Lido is one of the three barrier islands that protect and separate Venice and her lagoon from the open sea. Lido remained rather deserted for centuries; home only to monks and a few fishermen. In the late 19th-century when science and medicine understood the benefits of sun and sea therapy, everything changed. A very interesting and architecturally graceful urban development attracted elite travelers who spent the whole summer there. Don’t miss this personal peek into Laura’s home island – a rarely-visited gem of Venice!
