Caorle old centre is whole restored. It seems to have a tour at the outlet! Wonderful!

Everything is so beautiful that it appears artificial!

The bright colours don’t belong to the history of Caorle: in fact, they gave a unique touch to the old centre recently only.

Mr Paolino makes these masterpieces by himself and he wants you know that. He wants to hand down his own knowledges.

While the guide is explaining all bloggers take photos and twit. Two ladies walk near us after did the shopping and they talk to each other shocked: “Look at that! The guide is explaining and they are using their mobile phones!”

venezia orientale (5)

The medieval style of the Cathedral of Caorle. The insides are interesting. They all have their own history.

venezia orientale (6)

This is Caorle promenade. Every year the Scogliera Viva contest takes here lots of artists from all over the world. It renews the stones by sculptures and works of art under the open sky.

The little church on the beach of Caorle. The bell tower still acts as a lighthouse. Just on the beach. You must have a tour here. The place deserves it!
