Who has come to Venice at least once, knows well how difficult is spending more than one, two or three days in this city. Venice is not only fascinating (a commonplace by now), but also a unique place, and discovering it attentively is a really demanding experience.
Unless you have a specific target, (a museum, a church, a painting or a peculiar sculpture) going around Venice tires out. You can taste Venice without ever drawing a breath (as for the modern tourists, always in a rush) or you can sip its atmosphere slowly, quietly and sometimes having a rest.
That’s why I suggest – if you are not part of the more and more crowded multitude of crazy globetrotters who can drive throughout the country, town after town, in less than a week, and visit the whole Europe, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Ural Mountains, in less than five years, dangerously wandering (if we consider that the average annual holiday is of 30 days) – I precisely suggest, if you are a bit less nomadic and more resident, to differentiate the various experiences and drink the sweet goblet with small sips, gradually. This doesn’t mean that I am inviting you in one of our inns, doing nothing the whole day, even if the chosen inn could be one of the famous cafés in the nearby of St. Mark’s Square)ì – where a coffee, a friend told me recently, costs more than 10 euros; this means that you are suggested to relax and reflect on the most beautiful things you can enjoy in the most unique city in the world.
I am talking about mainland, inland, outskirts, environment, food and wine and adventure!
Thousands are the things I could say to you now, but, since I am a good Venetian, I am a realistic man, so I will give you the suggestions I would like to get if I were a foreigner. A few words, but clear and effective, in order to clarify everyone’s mind. For the reason that each has his favourite holiday: on foot, riding a bike, by train or plane; visiting, drinking and eating, spending or saving, talking, writing and dancing.
First (before museums, churches, paintings and sculptures), please learn how to know (and respect!) the locals: this is the venezianità (the sense of belonging to Venice). This is an essential aspect, in whose absence every desire, even if pure and noble, is cancelled, burnt and lost.
If you are joining us, shake! And welcome to Venice and its inland! This is the only way for loving this unique city, and Venice will requite your passion kind-heartedly.
Let’s consider this: the famous Lords of the republican Venice couldn’t stand to live in their sumptuous imposing palaces in the historic centre for more than six months a year and used to spend the time left on the dry land, where still nowadays their luxurious mansions show off.
The first outdoor itinerary will undoubtedly spread along the river Brenta (currently navigable) as far as Padua, or along the carrozzabile (road for wheeled traffic) of Terraglio, up to Treviso. These are the two main towns close to Venice. The former, Padua, is the university city above all others (here the most ancient Italian university has its seat) and can boast Prato della Valle, the widest square in Europe, Piazza delle Erbe in the old town and St. Anthony’s Basilica, one of the most prominent pilgrimage destinations in the world. The latter, Treviso, wonderful walled medieval city, is surrounded by water, which, penetrating, creates small islands and moves the vanes of watermills.
I’m not suggesting you to move further beyond 30 km in the lagoon, in order to admire the remaining amazing cities of Veneto, as Rovigo with the delta of the river Po, the most important Italian river; Vicenza, with its Madonna of Monte Berico; Verona and its Lake Garda, the biggest lake in Italy; Belluno with Cortina d’Ampezzo, the most prestigious ski resort in the world, at 2 hours and a half by car from Venice. No….I’m not telling you this, because it would need another holiday and, in any case, it will take your attention off the main destination: the Venetian lagoon.
I will tell you about something I discovered in the surroundings, as the golden beaches of Jesolo, or the hot thermal water of Abano Terme, the stunning submontane sweetness of Asolo, the historical archaeological ruins of Altino, the incomparable environment of the lagoonal eaves, of the navigable rivers Sile and Livenza, which flow towards the Adriatic Sea, going across lagoons and relevant towns eastwards. And here, I would like to remind Motta, San Stino, Portogruaro, and also Torre di Mosto, La Salute and downwards as far as the river’s mouth, Caorle and its valleys, where the uncontaminated environment is a proper background for both bathing establishments and fishermen’s work. These places are very close to Venice, and can also be reached by bike (if you are good cyclists!); there you can eat and drink well, tasting fresh salt-water and freshwater fish (famous worldwide is the sweet eel of the river Livenza) and sipping Tocai, white and grey Pinot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon, Verduzzo amongst the white wines, and Merlot, Cabernet franc, Sauvignon and Refosco amongst the red ones. The ‘Street of Wine’ of Lison Pramaggiore winds here and it would be such a pity missing it, because these fertile lands, together with their unbowed folks, made Venice a great city, and we, minstrels of past times, don’t let people forget.
Yes, on previous request, referring to specific Associations
We sum up hereby the several events we have planned, cooperating with the local tour operators, in order to create a holiday able to couple the traditional visit to Venice with the discovery of its impressive watery richness: the sea, the lagoon, the sandbanks, the natural reserves and many more.
The watery Venice cannot be kept apart from its role as the most representative Italian city of Art; here migrant and sedentary birds, freshwater and sea fish and the animals living in this area have found a safe shelter, for they are protected by the International Agreement of Ramsar about the preservation of the worthiest naturalistic environments.
Therefore, here you can enjoy artistic, archaeologic, fishing, religious, naturalistic, environmental, lagoon, marine, fluvial and gastronomic ‘watery tours’, in order to discover the antique traditions belonging to the feeling of being part of Venice, the “Venezianità”.
The fleet of ships at disposal is varied and ranges from the simple canoe to the majestic cruiser, beside the typical fishingboats and the original Venetian “bragozzi”. You are spoiled for choice and you can start on your adventure rowing or sailing in the sea-breeze or else using the modern propulsion technologies.
-Venice and its main islands: the traditional tour, including visits to Torcello, Burano and Murano islands
-Venice and its minor islands: it is important to mention those near the Old Town, i.e. San Giorgio, Santa Maria delle Grazie, San Servolo, San Clemente, San Lazzaro degli Armeni, and those in the surroundings, such as Poveglia, Sacca Sessola, San Clemente, Le Vignole, San Erasmo, San Giacomo in Palude and San Francesco del Deserto
-Venice and its shores: along the landstrips of Lido and Pellestrina which separate Venice from the sea, including possible stops in Chioggia and Sottomarina southward or in Cavallino and Jesolo northward.
-Venice and its sea: hugging the most famous Adriatic coasts and fishing together with the local fishermen, learning the secrets of the seagoing.
-Venice and its rivers: along the Riviera del Brenta with its well-known villas; the river Sile and its striking sceneries; the river Livenza and its crystal clear waters.
-Venice and its valleys: in the most uncontaminated places of the lagoon, in the natural wilderness, in the past the fishing valleys were created, where nowadays grey mullets, gilthead breams, basses, eels, molluscs, shellfish and other lagoon species are extensively bred.
It is obviously impossible to list all the several boat services and itineraries we propose: alone or in groups, for families or for adult people only, for few hours or all day long, with lunch on board or at a restaurant, in the daylight or at night, accompanied by a tour or naturalistic guide, along a planned path or following a requested route, on a circular tour or embarking and landing in different places, and many more.
Contact us in advance and we’ll be glad of giving you all the information needed in order to turn your stay into a real “holiday to know, love, taste Venice”.
Free entry and bus shuttle free from and to the Railway Station of Mestre (usually every hour in the afternoon and in the night)
Do you feel tired of walking in the labyrinth of alleys and squares of Venice Historic Centre?
Let’s take a rest among the fields and small woods of the nearby mainland, right there where the history of Venice started from, in the V Century A.D.
We are reffering to Altino (3 Kilometres from the Casa del Miele), once an important Roman Centre along the Annia roadway, which ran from Adria to Aquileia, Altino is nowadays the seat of a famous open-air archaeological museum. In the mainland of Altino a very important settlement was created in the Roman times for trade and commerce and its remains are still visible to remind the visitors of its past splendour.
Altino’s decline, which started with the arrival of Attila, the chief of the Huns, determined the birthof the city of Venice as the people who ran away in front of the barbarians’ destroying fury, thought that the best way to save themselves was to hide in the marshland of the Venetian lagoon, settling down, at the beginning, in the Island of Torcello. After that they colonized the Islands of Burano, Murano and then Venice, this unique city, a city literally created from air, standing on tree trunks from nearby Venetian forests and from the peninsula of Dalmatia, and transported to the marshland either on rivers or across the sea and through the three openings which connect the sea to the lagoon.
That’s how Venice was created, on pilework an Island that did not exist before that, relying on tree trunks that, thanks to the action of salted water, became as hard as stone. The rest is recent history with the well known Republic of the “Serenissima” which passed on to us an uncomparable treasure of art and architecture.
But let’s get back to Altino.
Among the fields of Altino, modern archaeologists have discovered “roads” which are now open to the public following an enchanting itinerary along the banks of the rivers. It is a step back into history, going back to the 1st century B. C. with the opening of the important Roman Road via Annia. Then was opened the via Claudia Augusta, through the Resca Pass and passing through the towns of Feltre and Trento (this last road was opened when the Virgin Mary was born in Palestine on 15 B. C., and to celebrate the Our Lady of the Carmelo Mountain in Altino every July, 16th night there is a big Feast with a long procession, lights and typical foods.
Along these “Roads” a circular itinerary reminds us of its antique splendour while cycling (mountain bike would be better) in all weather conditions and all year round, taking you in a dimension outside time and space… wich makas you feel closer to God. Starting from Altino, where you can rent a bike from, of “Remembrance” (as it is called) will take you across the Naturalistic Oasis of Trepalade, and along the banks of the rivers Zero, Sile and Dese to carry on, for the keenest cyclist, along the longer cycling itinerary that starts from the springs of these rivers all the way to their estuaries on the wonderful beaches of Jesolo – Cavallino.
The social Cooperative “Le Vie” has wanted to give back to these territories their original value, organizing archaeological visits to the sites, excursions by bike, tasting of typical food and boat trips departing fron Altino, in cooperation with the “Casa del Miele”, the National Archaeological Museum of Altino, the restaurant “Antica Altino”, the Oasis of Trepalade, the Bike Office of the Province of Venice, Fiaf – “friends of bicycle”, Trenitalia.
Within the starters: “capasanta gratinata” and “moeche fritte”! (roast capasanta or fried soft crabs)
Among the first courses: “risi e bisi” (rice with peas)
Like a second course: “fegadini alla venexiana” (small chicken livers in onion sauce)
Hors – d’oeuvre, second or only one course? The mythical “sarde in saor” (pilchards in vinegar and onion sauce)
Vegetables: of course the red chicory of Treviso (raw, cooked, or grilled!)
Sweet: “tiramesù” (and the “fregolotta”)
These are only some examples of names in a universe of gastronomic local culture, from the mists of time…
And don’t forget the “castradina” prepared only on the day the Venetians celebrate Our Lady of Health (“Madonna della Salute”), the November 21st, a big feast of all Venetian people. It is very, very difficult to find it, but its unique flavour takes your soul back to the “ancient splendours” of the Venetian Republic!
But let me suggest you some recipes, although the ingredients are rarely found on the market, allowing you to appreciate the typical food of the Venetian people of mainland: the fish of fresh water, because in our spring rivers, still healthy and clean, only few professional fishermen supply the small number of “conniving” passionate chefs:
whipped of pike, risotto with broth of carp and boleto mushroom, tench with rosemary, soup of barbell and potatoes,fillet of freshwater eel (from river!) with balsamic vinegar, pasta-“butterfly” shape with chub sauce and strudel of chub with vegetables, cryfish tails salad and spaghetti with the cryfish heads (they are the famous fresh water cryfish by river! now very hard to find), stewed cat-fish.
Merlot (with red grape), Garganega (white), Prosecco (white), Corvina/Rondinella (red), Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon (red), Tocai Italico (white), Pinot Bianco (white), Verduzzo (white), Raboso (red), Trebbiano (white), Durella (white), Moscato (white), and then Malbech, Marzemino, Pinot Nero, Refoso dal peduncolo rosso, Schiava, Tocai Rosso for the red wines and Chardonnay, Pinella, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sauvignon, Vespaiola for the white wines:
these are the grapes, in strict order of cultivated area, produced by the Veneto, the first Italian Region for production of wines.
From these grapes, masterly taken care of and wine-made, many prestigious wines are produced, reds and whites, suitable for any dish, and place on the market by the twenty specific Consortiums of protection
It is a group of old Venetian friends, also called Amici dea Ceseta (“Friends of the little Church”). They often meet to discuss the essence of the life: in common the love for Venice and everything that is good and beautiful
