Here is a small guide to the seaside resorts you might encounter during your houseboat holiday.

In the enchantment of north-eastern Italy, where gentle rivers mingle with the salt waters of the Adriatic, lie some of the most beautiful and welcoming beaches in Italy. This unique region offers the opportunity to combine the tranquillity of river cruising with the pleasure of a day at the seaside. Here is a small guide to the seaside resorts you might encounter during your houseboat holiday:

Jesolo and Sottomarina: Between Fun and Nature

Famous for its lively nightlife, shops, services of all kinds and sports activities, Lido di Jesolo is popular with both young and old. The mooring area, which is very close to the sea and quite far from the centre of the nightlife, offers the possibility of reaching the public beach in a few steps, guaranteeing tranquillity for those who prefer to avoid the chaos. On the contrary, for those who want to immerse themselves in nightlife, indulge in the joy of the best discos and theme parks, Jesolo is the perfect place. To get around Lido di Jesolo, it is advisable to have a bicycle.

 

 

In Sottomarina, however, the climate changes. Calmer, quieter, its beach is ideal for those seeking a more relaxing environment. The long stretches of fine sand and the calm waters of the Adriatic invite you to spend days relaxing under the sun or taking long walks at sunset. Not to forget the historic city of Chioggia, a must-see destination for lovers of history and architecture. Here too, a mooring on the island provides easy access to all these beauties.

Lignano Sabbiadoro and Caorle: Beaches and Culture

Nestled between the waters of the Adriatic Sea and the lagoon, Lignano Sabbiadoro is a pearl set among golden sand. Here, the beach stretches for eight kilometres, offering its visitors a varied landscape, where the blue of the sea meets the green of the centuries-old pine forest. You can sunbathe, stroll along the shore, take a dip in the sea and enjoy the many shows and events that are constantly taking place.

Caorle presents itself as a picturesque picture, where every detail adds a touch of colour to the complex. The Levante beach, with its golden sand, is the ideal place to enjoy the sea in total tranquillity, while the unique living reef offers an unforgettable panorama.

You can enjoy these wonderful beaches by choosing the 'Beaches and Culture between Veneto and Friuli' itinerary, where you can also admire places such as Bibione or the Venice Lagoon.

 

 

Each location tells a story, and each offers a unique perspective on what a journey of discovery in Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia can be. From relaxation to discovery, from fun to contemplation, all you have to do is choose your next destination.

It is no coincidence that Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia are the only place in Europe where it is possible to combine a river holiday with the massive presence of beaches. Every day of your holiday, you can enjoy this incredible advantage: moor your boat in the canals, a short distance from the beaches, and spend the day at the sea, diving into the waters of the Adriatic. Lignano Sabbiadoro, Grado, Caorle, Jesolo and Sottomarina are just some of the most famous locations you can explore.

Discover the right itinerary for you and enjoy a unique holiday!
