BIKE RENTALS - Lido 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, phone +39 041 5279100, then you pass through a fishermen's village: Pellestrina. Finally you must cross the channel by ferry from Ca' Roman to reach at last Chioggia.

This is much more than a rental service. Andreas Gtz, who has adopted Venice as his home, offers you the unique opportunity to learn rowing "alla veneta" (standing). This is a real rowing school indeed. It will be not possible to become a skilled Venice gondolier in such a short time but it's fun to try it. This experience will be surely unforgettable!
