Pedalling the Lido

< go to small group tours

The Lido is an island, a natural barrier that separates the lagoon from the open sea, it is a few minutes by water bus from St.Mark square. Come with us on a voyage of discovery by bicycle, enjoy the impressive and elegant villas and luxury hotels – Des Bains and Excelsior – built at the turn of the XIX century. On the ride while enjoing the beauty of the Lido intimately, from a distance you’ll experience the impressive sea wall murazzi . This long expanse of white lime stone from the XVIII century forms a dramatic margin between land and sea. Once you have pedalled along the beautiful murazzi you are ready for a glass of good local wine in Malamocco a small and pretty village. This is what is left of the original XVI century Lido.
