Bike itineraries

Print
These bike itineraries are partly on bike tracks and partly along quiet country roads, with little traffic.
Four itineraries by bicycle take you to locations in the territory surrounding Caorle, to discover the culture and environments, its customs and traditions, its antique arts and flavors, typical of the Veneto countryside.

CAORLE – ERACLEA MARE – BRIAN – CAORLE (40 km)

 

Leaving Caorle, past the revolving bridge, take the bicycle track that leads to Porto Santa Margherita, goes through Valle Altanea and arrives in Duna Verde. Continue on the paved road Via Selva Rosata, passing the Tourist Village San Francesco. At the first roundabout, take the bicycle track and continue straight. At the end of the track, turn left in via Abeti. Once past the Centro di Educazione Ambientale in Eraclea Mare, turn right in via Pineta, go straight and enter the luxuriant maritime pine wood which separates the beach from the town and ends in “Laguna del Mort.” This small marine lagoon was formed in 1936 when the nearby river Piave overflowed and destroyed the fragile sandy levee on its right side. This formed a new lagoon that reaches directly the Adriatic Sea near the town of Cortellazzo.
Along a dirt road, follow the coast line of the lagoon and reach the Wildlife Observatory. Here admire the landscape, the reclaimed fields, the coastal wood and the lagoon. Follow the river bank for about 1 km, and you reach the sluices gates where the river Piave merges in canal Revedoli. Follow the canal, under the overpass and turn right. Here the dirt road ends. You can either to go back to Eraclea Mare, reach the track and follow it in the opposite sense, or cross the bridge and continue towards Torre di Fine, along the canal Revedoli.
This road is quiet, with light traffic, and you can admire the verdant and flourishing reclaimed territory. You can see hares, pheasants and herons. In spring, you can also see the green rice-fields.
Continuing straight for 4 km you reach the town of Brian. Going along the canal you then see a massive brick building. This is the water-scooping machine, evidence of the early 19th century reclamation, when the land was drained. After 1 km, you reach Valle Tagli with the Azienda Agricola Romiati, an old farm surrounded by a beautiful park with centuries old trees, and then cross the Tezzon Bridge. Follow the road for approximately 6 km and you reach the Ca’ Corniani fork. Turn right, cross the drawbridge, called “delle Bilance” and continue straight. This road will take you directly to Caorle.

CAORLE AND HIS LAGOON (13 Km)

 

It is a real panoramic tour to discover the natural peculiarities of Caorle in a relatively short trail.
Starting from Piazzale Olimpia (in front of the stadium) go towards the town center following the canal and the directions for Spiaggia di Ponente. At the first roundabout, near the fishermen harbor, turn right along Fondamenta della Pescheria, and after 50 meters, turn right again in via dei Bragozzi. Follow the canal until via dei Tropici. Pass in front of Darsena (basin) dell’Orologio, and then turn right in via del Leone, near the roller-skating ring. Take the bicycle track along the canal dell’Orologio (Riva del Varoggio) and you will arrive at the mouth of river Livenza.
Go back to the historic center following via Livenza (near the ferry), then via Tagliamento, viale Santa Margherita, via Luigi dal Moro and arrive in via Roma. Pass in front of Piazza Vescovado where you can see the Romanesque Cathedral and the round bell tower, and shortly after, the small church dedicated to Madonna dell’Angelo, built by the sea. Following the road, reach the first roundabout (Piazza Veneto) and turn right. Follow Lungomare Trieste with the beautiful view of the bay called “Sacchetta”, and the view of the church of Madonna dell’Angelo and its small disused harbor. At the end of the Lungomare (seafront road), turn left and immediately right in viale dei Cacciatori. Once you have reached the small hamlet of Falconera, turn right and go straight to the waterfront near Canal Nicesolo, where many tourists gather to feed the numerous swans. On the opposite bank there is the Brussa wood and the lagoon park, a natural refuge of appealing beauty. Following the paved road you can see a few “casoni” (hatched shelter, once used by local fishermen) now converted in restaurants. Turn right in the dirt road called via dei Casoni that leads to Isola dei Pescatori (Fishermen’s island) where there are other “casoni”, now mostly used as storehouse for fishing equipment. Leaving the bikes in the parking area, you can continue on foot to visit this unique village. Back on the bikes, continue along the dirt road to reach the Parco del Pescatore (Fisherman Park), right behind the sport facilities, where you can find some refreshments before going back to town.

CAORLE - BRIAN – CA’ CORNIANI – CAORLE (17 Km)

 

Exit Caorle, pass the revolving bridge, and at the roundabout go straight on route SP 62 towards Ca’ Corniani. Cross the drawbridge called “delle Bilance” and turn left immediately into a dirt road alongside river Livenza. Along the road, on the right, you can see the fish farm “Le Generali” where sea bass, gilthead bream, conger eels are bred; on the left, in the distance, the mouth of river Livenza, merging in the Canal Commessura. After about 2 km, on the right, you can see an old “casone”, the traditional hatched fishermen’s shelters.
The canal bank is surrounded by a thick cane-brake, where you will find the so-called “cavane,” small wooden shelter for boats. At the end of the trail you reach Porta Brian, a big sluice gate that prevents sea water to mix with the water of the river Livenza Morta, used for irrigation. Past the sluice gate, turn right and follow the canal until you see a massive brick building: this is the water-scooping machine, evidence of the early 19th century reclamation, when the land was drained. After 1 km, you reach Valle Tagli with the Azienda Agricola Romiati, an old farm surrounded by a beautiful park with centuries old trees. Cross the Livenza Morta, on the Tezzon Bridge, and follow the road surrounded by cultivated fields until you see the farmhouse Ca’ Venezia on the left. Go straight along the dirt road (via Macchina Fissa) flanked by poplar trees and turn right at the second crossroad. After about 1.5 km there is Borgo Ca’ Corniani, a rural village created in the 18th century by the Venetian family Corniani, and now owned by Assicurazioni Generali. Here you can visit the recently restored ancient cellars and taste the local D.O.C. wines (D.O.C. Lison – Pramaggiore). To go back to Caorle, turn right, take route SP 62 along the river bank. After 1 km, you find the same drawbridge, called “delle Bilance,” and follow the outward road in the opposite direction back to Caorle.

GREEN-WAY LIVENZA: CAORLE – CA’ CORNIANI – S. GIORGIO DI LIVENZA – BOCCAFOSSA – TORRE DI MOSTO – SANTO STINO DI LIVENZA – CAORLE (60 km)


This itinerary takes its name from the fact that it winds along River Livenza banks. It is marked by explicit signs and in the resting areas maps are provided which inform of nearby historic, cultural, and environmental places of interest.
Exiting Caorle, pass the revolving bridge, and you find on the right the first posted map of the itinerary GiraLivenza. Going straight, you can see the former Farm Chiggiato which will soon house Caorle Museum of the Sea. At the roundabout, go straight on route SP 62. You will pass the bridge called “delle Bilance,” a well-preserved sample of drawbridge, which testifies of past intense navigation along River Livenza. Along the road you soon reach Ca’ Corniani, a rural village created in the 18th century by the Venetian family Corniani, and now owned by Assicurazioni Generali. Here you can visit the recently restored ancient cellars and taste the local D.O.C. wines. Pass Ca’ Corniani, and proceed for about 8 km along the riverbank as marked by the apposite signs.
Halfway, there is the small town of Ca’ Chiavica, with its big sluice gate between river Livenza and the hydraulic system of reclamation. Here, in the middle of the river, a small island houses a natural park. After about 4 km, you can visit the small church of Resurrezione(Resurrection), established in 1721, and recently restored. Back on the paved road, you can turn left and return to Caorle or continue following the river. In this case, after 500 meters there is the rural village of Ca’ Cottoni, and after 2 km, the town of San Giorgio di Livenza. At the first crossroad, cross the bridge and go straight along the bights (bends) of the river Livenza, until Boccafossa, a small village established in 1153 by the clergymen (canons) of San Salvatore in Venice, which now house two museums: the Museum of Rural Landscape, and the Museum of Rural Culture.
To return to Caorle, go through the town of Boccafossa, cross the iron bridge and then turn right following the Canal Brian (an artificial canal, made in the 19th century to collect the waters from reclamation). Continue towards San Giorgio di Livenza, turn left and go through town. Stay straight until you reach the river Livenza and, before the bridge, turn right returning on the road you came from.
Alternatively, if in Boccafossa you wish to continue the itinerary towards Santo Stino di Livenza, follow the road along the riverbank. You reach village Sant’Elena, and then, after 3 km, you reach the town of Torre di Mosto. The town owes its name partly to the sighting “tower” (torre) built by the Venetians between the 8th and 9th century to defend the harbor of Eraclea, and partly to the Venetian family “Di Mosto” who helped rebuilding the village after it was destroyed in 1411 during the war between the Serenissima Republic of Venice and Sigismund, Earl of Tyrol.
Once in town, at the first roundabout, the sign of “GiraLivenza” invites you to turn right. The road follows the Livenza riverbank, and passes by the antique river docking called “il Passo di Torre,” once used for transit and exchange of goods between the two sides of the river. The itinerary continues following the river Livenza, and after about 6 km, it reaches the state road “Triestina,” a heavily trafficked road. Turn right to cross the bridge and then turn left to enter the town of Santo Stino di Livenza, a small pretty town, worth a visit. The town of San Stino offers several elements of interest, both historical-artistic (the San Marco Church in the hamlet of Corbolone, the Castle downtown), cultural (the literary work of poet Romano Pascutto) and naturalistic (the river Livenza, the woods of Bandiziol and Prassaccon, the “Palù” – reclaimed marsh – in Bandiziol, and “Prà del Roccolo”).
To go back to Caorle you can either return to Triestina road and take the outward route in the opposite direction, or, before the bridge on the Triestina, continue on the opposite bank of the river Livenza towards the village of Biverone, and then Torre di Mosto. Once in Torre, at the intersection with via dei Pioppi, continue straight along the riverbank and in 8 km you reach the town of La Salute di Livenza. Turn right to cross the bridge and then immediately left to take the outward route in opposite direction towards Ca’ Cottoni, Ca’ Corniani and finally Caorle.
