Jesolo (or Iesolo) is a seaside resort town and comune in the Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy. With around six million visitors per year, Jesolo is one of the largest beach resorts in the country, and ranks 7th overall as a tourist destination. Its vicinity to central Europe makes it a favourite destination of many German, Austrian and French visitors.

The city's economy is mostly based on tourism. Jesolo is a seaside resort with abundant holiday facilities and its 15-kilometre (9 mi) beach called Lido di Jesolo. At the height of its touristic life, Jesolo was hosting 6 million tourists per year. Currently these have dropped to around 4.5 million tourists per year due to the competition from new resort towns.
