Here we are. As I told you in my post of some days ago, we are leaving to discover a land that has “a lot to offer, but it’s famous only for the city of Venice very often”.
Follow me! “Path in Oriental Venice” blog tour.
The hashtag is #IveBlogTour

Let’s go! Bevazzana destination!
See you soon.
I like the Lagoon yet.
Who wants to come with us?
Maybe…do you prefer this one?…on the road meetings…
Let’s start #IveBlogTour. Interesting and busy program.
Authorities’ welcome at the council’s room.
We’re arrived in Alvisopoli. Yeah! It really exists! It’s a hamlet near Portogruaro.
Large house, park, barns…what a sight! Very interesting history: it was named from Alvise city and it was built so that it was independent.
Visit at the church where aristocrats and the common people sat separately.
Enjoy your meal!
Academy concert at St. Christine in Gorgo Church.
I can tell you that I regret a bit to understand nothing about music in this location tonight.
See you tomorrow! Good night to all of you!

We arrived at Concordia Saggitaria!
The swastika was a sign of life from Nepal to Concordia Sagittaria. Not of death.
It’s really beautiful to discover the town walking along its streets calmly.
Cathedral and baptistery.
The remains of an ancient Roman bridge which had three arches. Concordia is full of remains everywhere
We move to Portogruaro for the 12hours bicycle race.
Is this the perfect place to have a spritz after a tour by caorlina, isn’t it? What is it? You will find out about it very soon!
Portogruaro has wonderful views. The roaring of waters freshens the air.
Lunch break. We eat some very fresh and excellently cooked seafood dish.
We have a tour at Belfiore Mill’s Museum.
This is the venue for the Wine’s National Exhibition.
Visit to local wineries. One more beautiful than the other.
The sun is going down. Let’s go to the vineyards!
Some wineries have dedicated programs for children so they can have some experience, like tread the grapes.
Here are mills working perfectly.

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!”
The medieval style of the Cathedral of Caorle. The insides are interesting. They all have their own history.
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!
The cross is above the windows’ level…Since in Alessandria politics doesn’t work …we could build this one! It would be not bad at all!
Some frescos in the town.
We are at the museum! A temporary exhibition accompanied by an archaeological story for the summer audience.
It doesn’t stray from the historical truth but it deals with topics in a light way.
An interactive museum that bewitches adults and children.
Look out! If you want to visit the exhibition, don’t forget it is falling due!
On board bragozzo, the typical two master trawler, sailing across the oriental lagoon’s canals in Venice..
We are sailing among casoni (fishing huts), some of them restored in a luxury way, other ones more classic and distinctive.
Sailing the narrowest canals among reeds and then going out in reverse because we can’t turn at the back.
Warm sun and ideal temperature. Simply perfect!
This type of relax allows you to spend a lot of time admiring these views.
Many other casoni: you can go into quite a lot of them.
You can admire once garaging places, still used today.
You can arrive there through bridges, canals, roads and cycle ways.
Just like this one where we had lunch.
Typical atmosphere and wine in floods!
We leave again.
You can also experience the tourist fishing.
Keep admiring oriental lagoon’s sights in Venice.
This is the point where “the sea discharges”. A place of treasure for all children.
The navigation proceeds calmly.
Now it’s time to come back.
We say goodbye to the last casoni and…
…we admire lagoon’s reflections. We move towards Brussa beach.
In this area there are reclamations and salvages.
At sunset: this is the perfect time to take photos.
The shadows are lengthening…
…and someone doesn’t miss the opportunity!
We finish off the day seeing this very beautiful aircraft flying at sunset. See you tomorrow!

Early in the morning we are ready to cycle and discover the lagoon.
We go for a cycle ride along the canals.
To get to the typical and distinctive Lio Piccolo village.
You can walk up on the bell tower. And we don’t miss the opportunity.
The view is fantastic up here! The lagoon appears wonderful.
This is the square where there are our bicycles.
The little church is full of little treasures you should discover like this Venetian glasswork chandelier.
We load on board the bicycles. Let’s go towards another destination.
Lagoon’s colours are very distinctive.
On board we take photos all the time.
The fauna is interesting and distinctive. A paradise for the lovers of bird watching.
We have lunch at a lagoon’s farm holidays.
You can also hire out all sorts of little boats here so you can row across the lagoon and even get to Burano.
In the afternoon we visit a fish-farming so we can find out all the techniques they adopt in the waters here.
Sailing, cycling, walking, loading on board the bicycles again. We’ve got to berth.
These views are even more beautiful at sunset.
Some bloggers are saying goodbye to you. See you tomorrow!
10th September 2014
Today we are going to discover Portogruaro.
Canals, water and views are very beautiful that you should take photos of them.
The swans are everywhere. They are only waiting for someone feeding them.
They swim among really big fishes.
The water freshens the air and its roaring gives rise to unique environments.
We are ready for the tour by caorlina (the typical boat).
You can arrive at Concordia Sagittaria from here.
It’s easy to get lost among alleys, calle, paths…
Don’t forget to admire the leaning bell tower.
It’s strange to go into the ancient library among all sorts of books.
The ancient trees in the park of Portogruaro. The area is covered by free Wi-Fi.
Some other photos…
Very nice venues on the water where you can taste an aperitif or a spritz.
In the afternoon we go to Bibione beach.
Today we are learning play beach tennis.
Now…let’s go to Bibione Thermae.
A suitable place for the whole family. You can relax and swim.
We don’t miss anything, of course.
In the evening you can admire the fountains in their full bloom.

Today it’s raining. So we changed our program. Now we move towards Sea Life Aquarium.
The Sea Life Aquarium is full of children due to the whether!
Carefully made setting.
It’s very beautiful to watch feeding animals. Did you know they eat in a very funny way?
We have seafood lunch in a very nice venue on the lagoon.
