Arrival in Quarto d’Altino after a half an hour drive. Altino was an ancient Venetian settlement that, after the Roman conquest, became a strategic commercial interchange point thanks to its position between the Venetian lagoon and some important roads. Visit to Altino’s National Archaeological Museum, whose exposed finds provide a cross section of life in the lagoon from Prehistory to the Roman era, through the magnificent Venetian break. We’ll head to Caorle, 40 km far.
We’ll have a fish based lunch in a “casone”. “Casoni” are buildings made of wood and canes shaped like Vs and common in all the Caorle lagoon. Formerly used as fishermen’s houses, now, renovated, they are small shelters far from everyday’s frenetic life. Some of them opened the door to tourists and became restaurant or even hotels. In the afternoon, we’ll row in a “bragozzo” (local fishing boat) across the lagoon to the sea in about two and a half hour. Caorle Lagoon is a protected natural environment worth discovering for its particular flora, migrant and resident birds and fishes variety. On our road back, we’ll hang out in Caorle’s historical centre.
Visit to the 11th century beautifully preserved duomo. Its basic exterior is compensated by the beautiful bell-tower separated from the main building that lends magnificence to all the opposite square.
