Discovering ancient villages, enchanted places with timeless landscapes. This is the secret of the route that starts from Jesolo and crosses the boundaries delimited by the Sile river, winding easily and comfortably in nearby Cavallino-Treporti. The itinerary, which is classified as easy, is 36 km long, with further extensions depending on which variant you choose. Follow us. The compass indicates Via del Casson and then Via del Pordelio, an arterial road that flanks the Venice lagoon on its right in an enchanting atmosphere with magic and colours. In the locality of Ca’Ballarin, turn left (into Via della Fonte) and take Provincial road 42, where you can find a cycle route, up to Ca’Savio, then turn right into Via della Treportina. After the second bridge, turn right into Via Saccagnana and head for Lio Piccolo: enjoy the amazing natural landscape. Alternatively, by turning left into Via della Ricevitoria, you will reach the terminal from which you can get on a boat and land at one of the various islands of the lagoon, including Sant’Erasmo. You’ll be spoiled for choice! On your way back to Jesolo, you will consider this experience a cure-all for both your eyes and your mind.
