Full description

Have you already enjoyed the most popular itineraries in Venice and want to experience something different? Maybe you want to try a new experience and spend a few hours away from the crowds that swarm into the historic center?

This all-new guided Venice lagoon bike tour will let you discover the wonders of this little-known area of Venice away from traditional tourist routes. You feel enchanted by the historical and naturalistic beauty of the Venice Lido and admire the intimate but volatile bond of the splendid and famous city of Venice with the sea!

You will meet your escort at the People Mover stop at Tronchetto, Venice, where you will pick up your bike, helmet and a small bottle of water, an essential item in every bike ride. Are you ready to board the ferry with your bike and start this original Venice lido bike tour?

The first part of our biking tour of the Venice lagoon, on board the ferry, will see you sailing along the Giudecca Canal towards Venice Lido. You will enjoy a splendid panorama and admire in peace famous buildings such as Chiesa della Salute, Punta della Dogana and the Basilica of Saint George... Not forgetting beautiful St Mark’s Square and its reflection on the water! Let your mind and heart be swept away by these magical views on the way to Venice Lido.

Once you have arrived, you will start the guided tour by bicycle of the Venice lagoon led by an expert guide who will entertain you with compelling stories, legends and interesting local facts.

  • The first stage of this brand-new Venice Lido bike tour will be the ancient Jewish cemetery dating back to 1386, the year in which the Republic of Venice gave to the Jews a portion of uncultivated land in San Nicolò of Lido for a cemetery to be built. Today it is still possible to admire up close some splendid historical monuments.
  • The tour will then continue along some streets with wonderful Art Nouveau villas for which the Venice Lido is famous, until you reach the lagoon boundary stones marking the ancient confines of the Venice Lagoon as established in the past by the Serenissima Republic.
  • After a short break in small but characteristic Malamocco, the tour will continue towards the Lido beaches where the Adriatic Sea crashes on the Murazzi, an imposing Istrian stone dam built by the Serenissima Republic to defend the banks of the lagoon from the erosion of the sea and protect Venice from flooding.
  • From the seafront you will arrive directly outside the majestic Palazzo del Cinema, the focal point of the annual International Film Festival.
  • But the bike ride does not end there... On your way back, you will also see the former Ospedale al Mare, opened in 1933 and once a famous and cutting-edge medical center. Today the building is completely abandoned... The imposing structure is a reminder of its glorious past!

The Venice Lido is a rich strip of land full of surprises: history, art, architecture and nature are the protagonists of our original and beautiful 16 km long Venice lagoon bike tour…!

Will you choose to leave in the morning to admire the slow awakening of the lagoon and its inhabitants, or embark in the afternoon to be enchanted by a fiery sunset over Venice? Two truly spectacular moments of the day to experience the beautiful Venetian lagoon!

Wear comfortable clothes and discover an unusual side to Venice: just a few clicks is all it takes to book this original Venice bike rental with guide tour and set off in the discovery of Venice Lido by bike!


The tour includes bike and helmet rental for the entire duration of the itinerary, a bottle of water (0,5 l), escort and the cost for transporting the bicycle on the ferry for the Venice Tronchetto-Venice Lido section.
