LENGTH: 35 km

DIFFICULTY: intermediate

This circular route of about 40 kilometres winds along the coast of the Venetian lagoon and offers spectacular views of the sea and surrounding vegetation. The route starts near the village of Ca’ Vio, where you can easily park your car. The route continues in the direction of Treporti, passing through Lio Piccolo, where you can make a brief stop to admire the view over the lagoon. From here, continue in the direction of Ca’ Savio. The road follows the sea and allows you to admire the sand dunes and pine forests that characterise this area of the lagoon. Finally, we arrive at Punta Sabbioni, the starting point for ferries to the islands in the lagoon. The last section of the route involves returning to the starting point via the provincial road through the Veneto countryside.

In general, the route is fairly easy and suitable for those with a fair amount of experience in MTB or gravel riding. There are no technical or particularly challenging sections, but it is still necessary to pay attention to the dirt roads and sandy sections that characterise some parts of the route.
