Visit Venice and the islands

Camping Ca’Savio is the ideal place if you would like to visit Venice.

You will reach Venice by boat leaving from Punta Sabbioni, passing through the Lagoon and arriving near St. Mark’s square. If you already know Venice or it’s you first time in this beautiful city, you can start from here to explore canals, museums and monuments and to walk through the tipical narrow roads called “calli”.

By boat you can easily reach also Burano, Murano and Torcello, famous for laces, glass and amazing views.


From Ca’Savio campsite, getting to the area of St Mark’s is easy. Here you will be captivated by the colours and architectural style of the Doge’s Palace, which used to be the seat of government in ancient times when Venice was ruled by the Venetian Republic.

The great rectangular square spreads before St Mark’s Basilica, with its gilded mosaics and domes. Framed by the Procuratie Vecchie and Procuratie Nuove buildings, the square’s wide porticoes are home to a number of longstanding cafés and shops.

On the northern side of the Square stands the fifteenth-century Clock Tower, which is famous for its bronze statues of two Moors, who sound the hour on a large bell. If you step under the tower and walk down the street called Mercerie, you end up in Rialto at the foot of the famous bridge over the Grand Canal.
