Several towns in this part of Veneto, though less touched by mass tourism and therefore less known, are noteworthy, in particular for those travellers in search of history and culture. We list here some itineraries in the inland particularly interesting for natural and/or cultural reasons, easily reachable from Caorle by car.

 

Caorle – Porto S. Margherita - Duna Verde - Eraclea Mare – Jesolo/Punta Sabbioni - Venezia

This is a short yet charming itinerary following a panoramic road along the Venetian Lagoon. The road is sided by reeds and other lake plants, which are the ideal habitat for many species of water birds. Once in Punta Sabbioni, ferry boats connect the town directly to Venice.

 

Caorle – Concordia Sagittaria – Portogruaro – Sesto al Reghena – Pramaggiore – Summaga

This itinerary covers a part of the territory along the rivers Lemene, Reghena, Lison.
Concordia Sagittaria (Julia Sagittaria) was established in 42 B.C. as a Roman colony along the ancient roman road Via Annia. Concordia still preserves some monuments and works of its Roman times, such as the Roman Bridge, the two Early-Christian Churches, two burial grounds, the Baptistery and the Romanic tower bell. Portogruaro is a pleasant medieval and Renaissance city built on the Lemene River. Of the old village it is worth mentioning Via Martiri della Libertà and Piazza della Repubblica where the town hall, with its unique architecture, is located, the Duomo and the charming water-mills. Sesto al Reghena is a rather old town on the River Reghena hosting an old Benedictine abbey founded around 741 A.D. Inside the abbey, many frescoes are well preserved, some of Giotto’s school. Pramaggiore is renowned for its national wine festival, “Mostra Nazionale dei Vini”. Visiting the local Enoteca and tasting the local wines is a must. Summaga is a small village with its own old Benedictine abbey, in which one can still admire notable frescos in the dome and along the walls, depicting scenes from the Old and New Testaments.
