Bicycle Excursion to Lio Piccolo

A guided tour by bike to discover dunes, vegetable gardens, lagoons and pink flamingos.

You leave from the centre of Ca’Savio. After a short ride, and crossing the bridge over the Pordelio canal, we reach piazza SS. Trinità in the small village of Treporti, where we can see the church with two bell towers.

After we continue to Saccagnana. Canals and Sandbanks alternate with cultivated fields and single houses till Piazza del Prà, a lovely court with a beautiful manor house and an inside court.

Here the lagoon conquers definitely main land and the road winds along the edges of the valli da pesca till the ancient village of Lio Piccolo, surrounded by the water of the lagoon, immersed in the quietness which gets only interrupted by the sounds of the different types of birds.

Riding along the narrow roads that come from the lagoon, we arrive at Mesole and we discover its small oratory built in the seventeenth century that is dedicated to Santa Maria del Carmine. Not far, the remains of the fourteenth-century convent of the Benedictine nuns are still visible.

But the real attraction on place are the flamingos! Since a few years they have settled in the lagoon and have become very popular in Lio Piccolo where you can watch them easily. The bicycle tour is very easy and all flat.
