Bicycle trips


From Certosa Island you can easily and quickly reach the start of delightful bicycle trips. You can hire a bicycle to discover evocative corners of the lagoon and reach beaches for an afternoon by the sea.
 
The hotel offers a number of itineraries you can follow either on your own with maps and detailed information, or accompanied by an expert guide.


Itineraries to Lido di Venezia.
 
1 ) From Piazzale Santa Maria Elisabetta to San Nicolò
 
From Piazzale Santa Maria Elisabetta, follow the Riviera San Nicolò northwards along the Lagoon to Via Cipro, site of Europe’s oldest Jewish cemetery. Following Via Cipro then turn left and continue down Via Marco Paolo where you will find Lido Hospital.


Turn left again and continue until you come to a wooden gate which indicates the start of the San Nicolò protected area. Follow the dirt track which takes you to the north end of Lido where the island ends, looking out over the inlet separating Lido from Cavallino.

Continue for a further two kilometres along the jetty to the San Nicolò lighthouse offering a spectacular view of the sea and the beaches of Lido.

2) From Santa Maria Elisabetta to Alberoni
 
The starting point is once again the ACVT landing stage at Santa Maria Elisabetta.

Follow the Gran Viale until you are in sight of the sea, then turn right along Lungomare Marconi. On the right along the road you can admire the Grand Hotel Des Bains, made famous by Thomas Mann’s “Death in Venice”. After about 1 km, you come to Piazzale del Casinò with the famous Hotel Excelsior and the Palazzo del Cinema, venue for the well-known annual Venice Film Festival.
 
At the end of the Lungomare Marconi, where the road bends right, leave the tarmac road going straight ahead and you come to a wood ramp leading to the Murazzi, an artificial barrier built to protect Lido from the sea. Continue down the narrow path with views of Alberoni beach at the far end of the island. Proceed for a further 5-6 km as far as the jetty marking the south end of Lido.

Itineraries at Punta Sabbioni and Cavallino


3 ) From Punta Sabbioni to Lio Piccolo
 
This evocative itinerary extends from Punta Sabbioni to the vast horizons of the Lagoon, through the old villages of the Cavallino coast.
