Overview

Explore Venice from a different perspective cycling around the lagoon.

Take a 4-hour (1,5 hour by boat - 2,5 hour by bicyle) small-group (maximum 10 people) cycling tour and visit the most unusual historical and cultural places of the city avoiding crowds and beaten paths!

Meet your guide in Tronchetto, close to Piazzale Roma, and take your bike with you on the ferry-boat (ticket at own expense) heading toward the Lido.

Pass along Canale della Giudecca and enjoy breathtaking views while listening to your knowledgeable guide. Learn about Venice's history, discover how the Republic of Venice dominated the salt-trade and the history of the salt warehouses.

Once in Lido, get on your bike and start your ride at a very leisurely pace along the lagoon. You will ride around 9 miles (16km), and the trip is suitable for all skill levels.

Follow your guide to unusual places, such as the old Jewish cemetery and enjoy the wonderful view of the minor islands of the lagoon.

You will discover and understand the history of the lagoon's fortification system, the ancient wells of the old town centre of Malamocco and see the Murazzi, a huge sea fortification built by the Serenissima Republic in the 1700s.

At the end of the ride, catch the return ferry-boat and say farewell to your guide in Tronchetto.

Took this tour just to see Lido but was surprised to 1) see this more beautiful, relaxed, less crowded version of Venice, 2) learn about the architecture and history of Lido - past and present, 3) make new friends: Marco, who is the tour guide, founder and architect with the city who created this tour. Take this tour and support the locals while your at it! Max of 10 people so a very private group tour.

This was the coolest experience ever! We love the inner city and canals of Venice but it can get so crowded. This was a perfect way to catch our breath, get away from the congestion and see another part of Venice that most don't even know about. Marco our tour guide was so friendly, informative and flexible. He allowed us to stop and jump in the Adriatic Ocean! Not to mention the added bonus of getting some fun exercise in while we're eating all that pasta! Thank you La Vacanza Travels, thank you Marco!

Such a great morning. The island of Lido is gorgeous and really fun to bike around. Our guide, Marco, was wonderful!

We recently came back from a great trip to Venice, and one of the highlights was the bike tour. We try to take a bike tour in every city that we visit. We feel like it gives us a whole different perspective on the new city, and at the same time getting a bit of exercise. We enjoyed the biking very good quality bikes, and our tour guide gave us some useful information along the way. Our kids ages 17 and 11 enjoyed it very much as well.

Hi We had a great cycle with Marco on the Venice Lido bike tour. I would highly recommend it. Marco was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Lido and the tour was great fun.
