Explore Eastern Veneto, riding alongside beaches and through distinctive river and lagoon landscapes
There are a number of routes that you can follow near Maranghetto:
Cycling route by the beaches
This route starts in the old town centre of Caorle by the Adriatic Sea and takes you towards Duna Verde on a convenient paved cycle path, away from the road. There is a bridge to take you over the Livenza River near its mouth. The river and the canals running through the Caorle countryside were important transport routes until the 1960s. A section of this ride follows the river route that connected Caorle, Grado and Trieste to Venice. The route goes through the villages of Brian and Torre di Fine, where some interesting hydraulic facilities can still be seen.
Lemene cycling route
While you are in Caorle, make sure you take a look around the old town centre, where you will find an 11th century cathedral with a distinctive cylindrical Romanesque bell tower and an adjoining museum that contains some significant works of religious art. A short distance away, the enchanting Sanctuary of the Madonna dell’Angelo looks out over the water on the seafront, which is adorned with original sculpted rocks. The delightful cycle path will take you to Falconera, where you can admire Caorle Lagoon and the traditional fishermen’s homes known as “casoni”. These spellbinding spots inspired Ernest Hemingway, who set his novel “Across the River and into the Trees” here.
Lagoon cycling route
Caorle is a little seaside town that was founded by the Romans and protected by the Republic of Venice. The latter’s cultural influence can still be seen in the shape of the architecture in the old town centre. Rivers, lagoons and vast expanses of countryside are the distinguishing features of the surrounding landscape, while the gold beach and the Adriatic Sea lie to the East. Cycling is an original way to explore this heavenly little part of the world. Leaving behind you Caorle’s old town centre and the picturesque Sanctuary of the Madonna dell’Angelo, you will follow the stunning Isola dei Pescatori cycle path.
