Full description

Lio Piccolo by bike is an extraordinary opportunity to discover Cavallino: a bike itinerary around the peninsula of Cavallino, nestled between the sea and the Venice Lagoon. The activity, about four hours long, can be completed by using your own bike or a hired one and following an expert natural and environmental guide.

Fauna, history and nature: indispensable elements in an unforgettable excursion along the Venetian coastline to/from Cavallino Treporti, crossing an incredible variety of landscapes shaped by nature and human activities. A unique opportunity to immerse yourself in one of the most beautiful areas of the Venetian coast, pedalling surrounded by a lush vegetation that will frame an unforgettable day.

Thanks to the convenient departure from Cavallino Treporti, this fun Venice bike tour is the ideal solution for those who want to discover the less well-known and crowded areas of the Adriatic coast. Venice and Jesolo have much more than the usual tourist itineraries to offer their visitors... Just outside the hustle and bustle of the most famous destinations lies a wonderful landscape rich in history, traditions and scenery of rare beauty.

Under the lead of an expert nature guide, who will provide you with information on the history and the peculiarities of the nature of the area you will cross along the tour, you will enjoy a truly unique ride! Visiting the lagoon by bike will allow you to come into contact with the soul of a land where nature has always played a leading role. The area consists of a peninsula, Litorale del Cavallino, which separates the Venetian Lagoon from the Adriatic Sea. Land, fresh water and salt water are the three elements that coexist in this territory in a truly unique way.

Cycling around the Venetian Lagoon you will be able to admire the great variety of landscapes that will open before your eyes: lapped by the waters of the Adriatic Sea and of the lagoon, the itinerary will cross breath-taking views... Sand dunes, golden beaches and vegetable patches in addition to the extraordinary lagoon landscape with its canals, sand banks, mudflats and fishing valleys that form the background to Venice’s spectacular skyline.

Our bike tour lasts approx. 4 hours. Departure is scheduled at Cavallino Bike in via delle Batterie at Cà Ballarin in Cavallino Treporti (Venice), where, for those who do not have their own, it is possible to hire a bicycle. Here you will meet your nature guide who will accompany you along the bike tour: the route does not have any particular difficulties and is available every Wednesday in the morning.
