Are you tired of a classic holiday under the parasol? Don’t worry! If you choose Caorle as a tourist destination you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to excursions and attractions to experience and discover, all just a few kilometres from the beach.
You may not know, in fact, that Caorle offers much more than its historic centre and its golden beach. Just a few kilometres from the coastline you can find many small treasures to discover, even on the saddle of a bike for lovers of slow and “green” mobility.
Our web portal offers a section specifically dedicated to booking excursions, both organised and unorganised.
However, we would like to offer a broad overview of all the potentialities expressed by the territory.
We certainly begin with the area of Brussa and Valle Vecchia, the naturalistic oasis par excellence of the municipality of Caorle. Thanks to the activation of the ferry service Caorle – Valle Vecchia – Bibione, you can easily reach the area of Brussa bringing with you your bike (owned or rented, for example, at the bike station of Ca’ Corniani). The ferry docks on Isola dei Pescatori, in Falconera, an area enhanced by the presence of casoni, the typical marshy huts of the Caorle Lagoon. On the saddle of a bike you can admire the wild beauty of Falconera and then move on to Valle Vecchia and Brussa to discover the delicate oasis, rich in birdlife, and the landscape of the reclaimed land. In Brussa it will also be possible to stop at one of the restaurants, farm holiday centres or the zero-km “B2O” brewery to taste typical local products.
Another characteristic area of the Caorle hinterland is undoubtedly Ca’ Corniani, a rural village with a past dating back 160 years. This small hamlet has been the subject of a major landscape redevelopment project that has led to the restoration of the area’s old historic buildings (the wine cellar, the water-scooping machine transformed into a multimedia museum), the creation of several kilometres of cycle paths immersed in the peaceful, quiet, well-cultivated land and the installation of large-scale land art works bordering the ‘Ca’ Corniani’ estate: ranging from the sign that lights up when lightning strikes the Italian soil to the sculptures of the animals of the last sharecropper in the area and ending with the old farmhouse rebuilt with a ‘golden’ roof that is visible even from long distances. Once again, lovers of good food and wine will be able to stop off at the local restaurants and taste the wines of the Ca’ Corniani winery. Also at Ca’ Corniani, as already mentioned, there is a cycle station (unmistakable, being an evocative building in the typical brown, green and yellow colours of agricultural areas) where it is possible to eat and rent bicycles and e-bikes.
For those who wish to travel a few kilometres further afield, the eastern Veneto region offers many attractions. Don’t miss, for example, the Bandiziol forest, the largest lowland forest in eastern Veneto, and the nearby lake created by a sulphurous water resurgence. The Sanctuary of the Madonna dei Miracoli at Motta di Livenza is a pilgrimage destination for many devotees. Well, there are organised tours that, with pick-up directly at the hotel, will allow you to reach the Sanctuary by bike after being transported to the nearby town of Biverone. As part of the same route, you can admire the countryside and the wineries of the Lison Docg area, possibly stopping at a winery for a tasting of wines and gastronomic products.
For lovers of culture and history, don’t miss Concordia Sagittaria, with its Roman ruins and imposing basilica, and the elegant Portogruaro, built on the banks of the River Lemene.
Those who prefer a more relaxing experience can rent small boats to sail up the Livenza river to discover the hinterland of eastern Veneto, with the possibility of lunch on board, again with typical local products, or discover the beauty of the Caorle Lagoon by boat or motorboat (with the possibility of stops on organised tours at local wineries).
These are just a few of the dozens of activities you can undertake if you come on holiday to Caorle, not only in summer but also outside the classic months of the tourist season!
We are sure that you will not miss the opportunity to become profound connoisseurs of this unique strip of land!
