Caorle to visit


Caorle: lived during the all year, is one of the best cities of the high Adriatic faced on the sea, rich of history and tradition.

The fishing harbour is situated side by side of the high street; Caorle is also the tradition of the fishers and fresh fish, that is the base for special traditional dishes.

Next to the harbour, there is the typical historical centre, just for pedestrians, between the little streets “ calli and campielli” typical of the Venetian tradition. You can walk all around and do shopping in the nice shops all around. You can visit the beautiful Cathedral of the X century with the Templar frescoes, and the circular bell tower of the XI century as well as the museum inside it and the amazing sanctuary of the “Madonnina dell'Angelo” on the beach, protector of the city to which the “Caprulani” are devoted.

All the historical centre is surrounded by the 7 Km of seafront full of rocks carved from the best sculptors that every year in June take part at the big demonstration “SCOGLIERA VIVA”.

Don't forget the lagoon! You can visit the little island and the big islands immersed in a green area and wet by the brackish water with the boats that are available every day, so you can be delighted by the animals and the plants all around.
