02 - The road of the Serenissima

From Portorož (Portorosa) and Koper (Capodistria) you reach Trieste and the Gulf with the same name thanks to a ferry from Muggia. Then you climb the Carso using the cycling path of Val Rosandra, with splendid sea views: then you carry on towards Basovizza and then easily descend towards Duino, embellished by the cliffs overhanging the water and the beautiful castle. As an alternative from Trieste you can go by train to the town of Monfalcone. Now you are in “Bisiacaria” – a land between the rivers Timavo and Isonzo – which you cross to reach Grado, suspended between land, sea, lagoon, rivers and canals. Then you pass through Aquileia, a jewel of Roman and Byzantine art, continuing then towards the Marano lagoon and Lignano Sabbiadoro. There is also the possibility of arriving here by boat from Grado. Then you go to Bibione to head towards the Concordia Sagittaria archaeological site and the beautiful centre of Portogruaro, resting on the banks of the river Lemene. After this you go towards the coastal area along the seaside cycle paths: Caorle, Eraclea, Cortellazzo to then reach Jesolo and Cavallino, the orchards of the Venetian lagoon. From Punta Sabbioni, with a short motor-vessel ride, you arrive on the island of Lido of Venice, which you can ride around and then take the ferry to Pellestrina which takes us into an authentic atmosphere, between the sea and the lagoon, until you arrive in front of Chioggia. As an alternative, from Lido you can go to Venice, a natural place to stop during this journey on the Serenissima routes.
