Arrival at the coast of Cavallino Treporti, and accommodation in the Casone of Valle Sacchetta or of Lio Piccolo restored following the traditional buildings. The buildings are immersed in the quietness of the fish farms of the North Lagoon of Venice.
Traditional fish-based dinner in a typical restaurant of Lio Piccolo or Treporti: you can taste the flavours of a land nestled between the sea and the lagoon, and begin the journey with the description and illustration of the programme.
Morning: Half-day excursion to a fish farm accompanied by the vallicoltore
Valle Sacchetta is a fish farm still operating and an important nesting site for Mediterranean gulls. Without any noise, without human presence within a radius of hundreds and hundreds of meters, fully immersed in the lagoon landscape, listen to the stories of the valligiano (fish farmer) while you walk along the banks of the two lakes that make up the fish farm where, for one day, you can live the authentic life of a fish farmer.
Lunch in a tipycal restaurant of Treporti with traditional Venetian dishes.
Afternoon: The Peninsula of Cavallino Treporti: beaches, villages, gardens and lagoon fish farms
By bicycle, discover a land between the sea and the lagoon, and cycle from the sandy beaches with high dunes and shady patches of wood, to the villages on the coastline surrounded by gardens and canals. Follow small streets with little traffic that meander in the middle of lagoon waters and gardens.
Free dinner in one of the typical restaurants on the coast.
Excursion: The islands of the North Lagoon of Venice on a Bragozzo
Among shoals and cane brakes, small forgotten islands and banks, the small flat-bottomed boat follows unusual routes, those followed by fishers and clams fishing boats, depending on the tide conditions, grazing the old islands of Ammana, Castrazio and Costanziaca. In Torcello, get down for a walk into the history of the birth of Venice. In Burano, you’ll be received by the colours, laces and nets of fishermen tied up on the banks in front of the doors of their houses. In San Francesco or Sant’Erasmo, you can discover the originality of each island, convent or garden.
Lunch in the boat and sailing
