An itinerary that heads inland from the, discovering the vestiges of Imperial Rome along the “waterway” that flanks the Lemene River. It starts from the centre of Caorle and heads towards Isola dei Pescatori (Fishermen’s Island), then along the Lagoon’s charming wetland area, amidst flights of herons and egrets, crossing the Valli Park as far as the innermost Valle Zignago. The route continues along the Lemene River on the cycle route of the same name. We reach Concordia Sagittaria, an ancient Roman colony dating back to the 1st century BC where cyclists can visit the old town centre and the remains of the theatre, the Forum, the Roman baths and a long stretch of the ancient city walls. The ride continues to Portogruaro, an elegant town the writer Ippolito Nievo called the “Little Venice of the Mainland”; a town of fascinating atmospheres and well-preserved monuments.
Bike paths, some dirt track stretches and gravel.
There are signs for the GiraLemene route and the European itinerary Eurovelo 8, known as the Mediterranean Route.
Accessible from March to November. Cooler hours are recommended, especially in summer, because of the many stretches exposed to the sun.
