What Will You Do

Let's bike in the Venice's vegetable garden

We will reach the Sant'Erasmo island, also known as the "Venice's vegetable garden", thanks to a 30 minutes Vaporetto ride through the lagoon. Once a rural retreat for aristocrats and the main source of vegetable and fruit supplies for the Republic of Venice, the island is now a tourist-free refuge for Venetian families as well as a unique natural highlight of the northern lagoon.

Ride a bike!

Once landed, we will walk through a small road passing canals and ditches, towards the bike rental place, where we can get our countryside bikes.

A circular fort facing the lagoon

The tour will start from a 19th century fort sometimes used for art exhibitions and surrounded by a stagnant moat, started by the Napoleonic regime and finished by the Austrian.

Biking through the island

We will bike along the lagoon, vegetables fields and saltmarshes admiring views of the San Nicolò harbour mouth at Lido island, Punta Sabbioni and passing through fields enriched by typical rural dwellings.

Visit to a local honey producer

In this unique island, not only vegetables and fruits taste better but also flowers, and bees know it very well! We will visit to a little family owned apiary producing local saltmarsh honey.

Crossing the island by bike

We will reach the northern part, facing across the water and mud banks towards the islands of Burano, whose coloured houses can just be distinguished, and San Francesco del Deserto, a monastery inhabited by Franciscan monks.

A church facing the lagoon

We will visit one of the few notable buildings on the island, the church, in front of the calm lagoon waters.

Return to Venice

We will get back to Venice Fondamente Nove by water bus or you can decide to stay on the island of lunch or dinner in a restaurant with a terrace overlooking the lagoon.
