Cavallino is a coastline that stretches between the Adriatic sea and the lagoon, one of the closest beaches to Venice. Most of the beaches are wide dimension and some still wild, surrounded by pine forest, green areas, dunes in continuous training and areas for camping.
The landscapes you will meet here are typical of the lagoon, interspersed with orchards and fish farms. If you go to Lio Piccolo, one of the villages of Cavallino, certainly be able to see unusual and picturesque landscapes and discreetly observe the typical flora and fauna of the lagoon, including: ducks, herons and flamingos.
The yellow route that Brunella recommended below, is a bycicle path for medium-long distance, mainly on the bike path. The red route that leads to Lio Piccolo, after the Church of Treporti, does not have a cycle track and is of reduced width. So be careful if you are in the group and if you have children. For all traits that will take you into the middle of the lagoon and the sometimes wild and natural areas (forest and pine forest), it requires respect and attention, you must remember that your move should not cause any disturbance and damage to the environment and its inhabitants (especially the birds in these areas have created their oases and settlements).
Yellow Route 23 km: Via Fausta (pista ciclabile), Via Lungomare Dante Alighieri, Via Montello (in parte strada sterrata), Via Adige, Via Ca Savio (pista ciclabile), Via Pisani, Via delle Batterie, Via Radaelli, Via Fausta (pista ciclabile).
