The Litoranea Veneta by bike from Cortellazzo to Brian
An easy route along the « Terre del Fiume Piave », through villages, woods and waterways.
Cycling along the ancient Litoranea Veneta (a canal linking Venice with Trieste) from Cortellazzo, a quiet fishing village at the mouth of the River Piave, to the reclaimed land of Torre di Fine, Brian and Eraclea.
We will cross the river through a boat bridge. The river Piave is considered sacred to the motherland because it became the front line during the First World War. Later we will explore a territory rich in history, culture and traditions; touching the renowned Northern Adriatic beaches and going through rural hamlets. We will visit a farm (Azienda Agricola “La Fagiana”), one of the last paddy fields of the area.
Then we’ll cycle through coastal woods and waterways closely connected with the history of Italy.
Conditions of the route: flat paths (low-traffic asphalt roads)
