Discovery tour by bike on Lido Island, the beach of Venice

We will discover the Lido island by bike, with its groomed shellac beaches, bronzed lifeguards and old ladies sipping Prosecco at the market, experiencing the Belle Epoque glamour passing in front of the beautiful hotels designed in the 20s in Art Noveau style.
We will enjoy special views of Venice biking along the lagoon and reaching an old Israelitic cemetery. Biking through the San Nicolò harbor mouth we will reach its lighthouse and we will end up at the Hotel Excelsior, where the stars gather on the red carpet during the glittering Venice Movie Festival.
We will bike along the canals of Malamocco, a colorful fishing village that’s like a miniature version of Venice, cycle through a forest reserve to a lighthouse and relax like the locals do by heading to quiet Alberoni beach for a drink or a swim.
The route will continue on the lagoon side of the island, with views of the abandoned island of Poveglia, the island of Lazzaretto Vecchio and San Lazzaro degli Armeni.
