Pellestrina (Fraction of the municipality of Venice)

From Wikipedia:

Pellestrina is an island in northern Italy, forming a barrier between the southern Venetian Lagoon and the Adriatic Sea, lying south west of the Lido.
The island is 11 kilometres long and has since the eighteenth century been bounded to its seaward side by large embankments. There are four main villages: San Pietro in Volta, Porto Secco, Sant' Antonio di Pellestrina and Pellestrina, known for their colourfully-painted houses.
The main industries of the island are market gardening, fishing, tourism and lace making. Like Chioggia but unlike Torcello, the local lace is made with a needle.
Attractions on the island included the Lido of Ca' Roman, known for its pine trees and birdlife.
