Caorle et Jesolo


Caorle is a famous seaside resort between Venice and Trieste. It was a little fishing village during Roman times, and now it has become a modern tourist resort with fine sandy beaches, a well supplied port for 800 boats, a well equipped sports centre and a green oasis…the Lagoon. Caorle’s historical town centre is known by small houses painted in typical pastel colours, little streets and squares and its Romanesque cathedral (XI century).


Jesolo was born during the Roman Empire, it was a village on an island near the mouth of the Piave river: it was one of the many places used by merchants in their journeys inside the lagoon, protected from winds and storms, on the way from Ravenna to the great town-fortress Aquileia, rampart of the Eastern Roman border.
The first information about the touristic Jesolo are from the late 1800s, when the first bathing establishment was opened, in front of Piazza Marconi. Immediately after the Great War, tourist activity grew quickly, building villas, holiday camps and hotels.
