BIKE RENTALS - Lido
A valid alternative to the crowded beaches
of Lido di Venezia would be to rent a bike and ride the entire
island, even to Malamocco (the ancient Metamaucus destroyed
by a seaquake was seat of the republican government before
Venice), and to enjoy a relaxing time far away from the
traffic jam. Another interesting itinerary is Lido-Chioggia
(about 21 Km.) that must be completed crossing the canals
of Malamocco and Chioggia by ferry boat.
The ride begins pedalling along the Gran Viale, directing
towards the sea, then turns right down the Marconi Sea Front,
it's possible to see on the left the protections
erected at the time of the Republic Of Venice, the "Murazzi"
(1716 - 1744). It goes on to Malamocco and then to Alberoni.
The channel of Malamocco must be crossed by ferry to arrive
to the island of Pellestrina. Pedalling along San Pietro
in Volta, you can stop for lunch at "Da Nane" Restaurant,

village: Pellestrina. Finally you must cross the channel by
ferry from Ca' Roman to reach at last Chioggia.

it. This experience will be surely unforgettable!
