Finally, the city of Milan has decided to give new life to one of the most historical symbols of the city: the Lido!
This is a very ancient and particular place, created for amusing citizens and tourists!
Just think that it was built about one hundred years ago and that, together with the already existing horse racecourse, it should have turned Milan into a “city of sports” and, we guess, also of fun.
This because the Lido was a meeting place for all the citizens of Milan where, except for sports, there were many parties and festivals!
Nowadays, it’s less majestic than before, but it’s always rich in sports and leisure equipment. Moreover, it now also has a real beach: 1,000 tons of sand had been carried here in order to realize a perfect place where to relax!
On Saturday June, 13th, for the first time, the Lido was opened during the evening (from 7:30 p.m.) and, on Friday June, 19th, the amazing opening ceremony took place at 7:30 p.m. near the Beach Area!
Here the MilanoFree’s piece about this fantastic event:
Its’ the first real resort of the city created for all its citizens and tourists that will come to visit Milan during Expo 2015.
From June, 13th to August, 30th, the Lido will offer both citizens and tourists, whether they are adults, children or families, many services that are perfect also for the most exigent client.
(Extra services and VIP treatment at a price of € 5 for the normal beach lounger and € 25 for a bigger beach lounger)
