The Venetian lagoon extends between the mouth of the rivers Piave in the north-east and Brenta in the south-west.
Its maximum size is 50 km in length by 11 km in width.
The Venetian lagoon is the largest lagoon in Italy: it measures 550 square kilometres, 67% of which are covered in water, 25% are occupied by sandbars and 8% by islands.
The contained fishing valleys take up 15% of the total surface of the lagoon.
With its canals, bodies of water and lagoon valleys, this slice of paradise offers an extraordinary landscape. It provides the ideal backdrop for you to immerse yourself in a wild, yet hospitable natural setting. You can explore the lagoon on foot or by bicycle, following suggestive natural trails, or by boat, along banks and canals.
The harmonious sounds of nature of Cavallino Treporti will give you a pleasant surprise. In an uncontaminated environment, you can admire numerous species of the splendid local avifauna: little egrets, seagulls, black-winged stilts, cormorants, herons and elegant pink flamingos, which have been choosing Cavallino Treporti for some years as the ideal environment to give birth to their chicks, will leave you breathless.
