Lido di Jesolo

Lido di Jesolo is a seaside resort rich in history, which has its roots in an ancient past.

It still preserves the remains of a past civilization and ancient human settlements, partially visible in two fascinating archaeological sites: the Zona delle Antiche Mura, the remains of an imposing basilica built at the time of the Republic of Venice, and Torre Caligo, a medieval fortress.

Cavallino

Cavallino is a long peninsula between the Adriatic Sea and the lagoon.

The coast is characterized by an environment of great naturalistic importance in which the long golden beach, the dunes, the pine forest and the fascinating lagoon landscape with its canals, salt pans and fishing valleys follow one another.

Punta Sabbioni

Punta Sabbioni combines the sparkling atmosphere of the Venetian seaside resorts with the peaceful and dreamy atmosphere of the lagoon.
The town is located at the southern end of the Cavallino peninsula and is home to a rich historical and natural heritage, as well as sea links to Venice and the islands, which are approximately 10 kilometers away.

The Forte Treporti, built during the Austrian domination to defend the lagoon territory and Venice, and the Batteria Amalfi, completed in 1917 and used in both world wars to protect the coast and the Venetian city, are just some of the places that you can see in this stop.

All you have to do now is prepare your bike, get on board the bus and choose where to bike!
