Discover the Lagoon and the typical Casoni of Caorle.
With its unique flora, more than 280 species of migratory and sedentary birds and the variety of fish that breed there, the lagoon of Caorle is a protected natural area waiting to be discovered! It is no coincidence that the American writer and Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemingway was so fascinated by it that he described its beauty in his novel “Across the River and Into the Trees”.
Once upon a time it was here that the fishermen of Caorle lived with their families, in the characteristic casoni of Caorle: these are typical dwellings made of wood and marsh cane, which can still be seen today and can be visited with a quiet and evocative walk or by using one of the bicycles provided by the Hotel Unico.
As it is navigable, the Caorle lagoon can also be explored on board the numerous tourist boats that organise unmissable visits to the casoni, in an evocative route between canals and dry land.
Immerse yourself in the charm of the lagoon, among the characteristic Casoni of Caorle.
Reach the fascinating Sanctuary of the Madonna dell’Angelo, which marks the beginning of the Levante beach, and walk along the Lungomare Trieste, the beautiful coastal road that in about thirty minutes will take you to the Falconera district. After passing the campsite of the same name, you will find yourself in front of the Nicesolo canal, one of the most characteristic areas of Caorle, beyond which lies the natural oasis of Brussa with its pine forest, dunes and beach.
Continue along the asphalt road until a dirt track for cyclists and pedestrians starts on the right, from which you can admire the Caorle Lagoon in all its beauty.
Continuing to the right along the embankment, you will come to Isola dei Pescatori, a place to stop for a pleasant visit to the characteristic casoni (fishermen’s huts) of Caorle.
Leaving Isola dei Pescatori along the dirt road that follows the Saetta canal, after 500 metres you will come to its confluence with the Riello canal. A few hundred more metres and you come to the municipal stadium. Just before the stadium, at the level of the small communal vegetable gardens that are managed by retired residents, turn left to arrive at the Parco del Pescatore, the town’s great green lung.
