VENICE AND ISLES
You can arrive to Venice with public transport, which runs every half hour from Terminal of Punta Sabbioni or from Treporti. We recommend the use of the bus stop Ca’ Ballarin.
Besides visiting Venice, you should visit the islands of Burano, Murano and Torcello.
Burano is famous for its brightly colored houses. Is also known for its typical sweet biscuits “bussolai” and for the production of fine handmade lace.
In the Torcello island you can admire the ancient Romantic remains of Santa Fosca and the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, built by the first inhabitants of the Venetian lagoon escaped from Altino to find refuge from the fury of the barbarian invasions.
Finally let yourselves visit the island of Murano, famous for its production of artistic glass exported all over the world.
The formation of the Cavallino peninsula only began around 1200 AD, when the Piave river began to deposit sandy material suspended in its waters and thereby forming the islands of Mesole, Saccagnana and Treporti.
In 1300 AD this area featured four lagoon-harbour mouths, namely the San Nicolò port, the Sant’Erasmo port, Treporti port e Lio Maggiore port. Over the centuries the sedimentation process is continued up to the present conformation of the peninsula.
The Cavallino-Treporti area consists of a long peninsula encircled by water on three sides and stretching for about 15 km.
Its northern side faces on to Venice Lagoon while to the southern side faces on to Adriatic Sea.
Being situated between two such different environments (lagoon and sea), means that the Cavallino peninsula displays different features in its different parts: in the northern part of the peninsula, in other word towards the lagoon, you find typical valleys environments (fishing valleys, lagoon canals and sandbanks), linked to the major waterways carrying lagoon traffic; in the Southern part of the peninsula you find typical sandy coastline environment with beaches and sand dunes.
The coastline of Cavallino-Treporti is an important natural area that is part of the European ecological network NATURA 2000. The network includes the territorial areas designated Sites of Community Importance (SCI) and Special Protection Areas (SPAs). In these areas there are the habitat, with particular species of animals and plants, particularly important at European level.
We suggest you rent a bike and visit the traditional settlements Lio Piccolo, Mesole and Saccagnana to find yourself immersed in the Venetian Lagoon and live a unique experience of its kind.
