Discover the naturalistic bike routes

Cycling routes for the whole family

The best way to experience and explore the most beautiful parts of the Cavallino Treporti coast is surely by bike. It is a wonderful opportunity to get to the most hidden and intimate parts of this natural deeply relaxing oasis and to be at one with its untouched nature.

The routes are marked by the passage through varied landscapes of the lagoon region. On foot or by bike you can run into fields under cultivation, banks immersed into the northern lagoon that run along fishing valleys and gardens, but also pinewoods and dunes, and an open air museum circuit, "Via dei Forti” that numbers about 200 fortifications built between 1845 and 1920. A journey between present and past to experience tradition and innovation, simple tastes and culture.

 

 

Discover the beauty of our area by bike!

By riding a bike you can admire charming views, focusing on its details, enjoying the smells around you, noticing the changes of colour that take place throughout the day. Let yourself be charmed by birdsong, the rustling of trees swaying in the light breeze coming up from the sea or from the lagoon.

Thanks to the tracks and bike paths that cross the entire coast you can discover this corner of paradise. You can go off on an aimless adventure, or use the cycling routes made for you and your family by the Cavallino-Treporti Tourism Park along with Venezia Opportunità, Coldiretti and the Venetian Environmental Tourism Manifest. Each tour allows you to discover the wonders of our region.

Once you leave the beach you can lose yourself in the pinewood of Punta Sabbioni getting lost between forest passageways and small country roads.
