“Detourism”, the official Town of Venice Tourist communication Service Newsletter, today presents the other side of Venice: the lagoon islands! Enjoy your reading!
There is so much to discover in the lagoon beyond the Venice’s central districts. The Venice Lagoon is an ideal destination for a slow and responsible travel experience, on foot, by bicycle or rowing.
Discover the precious cultural heritage in the smaller islands, from the best-known ones, such as the Lido of Venice and Burano, to all the other minor ones, including Lazzaretto Nuovo, Vignole, San Lazzaro degli Armeni and San Francesco del Deserto, where the most authentic spirit of the lagoon life is still preserved.
The lagoon islands also host several vegetable gardens where typical local products are grown, alongside vineyards of native wines, suh as Dorona grape. Not to be missed: the vineyards of Mazzorbo and the orchards of Vignole and Sant’Erasmo.
On the island of Pellestrina you can also spend a day aboard a fishing boat with the local fishermen. An opportunity to discover the secrets of the production of mussels and also to taste the organic mussels of the lagoon, cooked on board according to traditional recipes.
Here is an itinerary to discover the Lido and Pellestrina by bicycle.
Also around Burano and Torcello you can enjoy fishing tourism experiences. From April to October the fishermen of Burano accompany small groups on their boats to discover traditional fishing in the sea and in the lagoon.
