The Green Park Hotel: Activity and excursions
You will enter a special atmosphere to perceive the special attention of the local people to nature and its potential through a path that will keep you busy for a few kilometres (about 30), immersed in nature, starting from Santa Maria Elisabetta in Cavallino and up to Punta Sabbioni.
To fully enjoy the splendour of this itinerary, it is better to trek in this route late in the afternoon at sunset to enjoy the really appealing natural show.
Cavallino has always been the first bulwark of defence of the Venetian region. Here you can visit the Hasburg fortification on the Island of Sant'Erasmo desired by the Emperor Francesco, the old fort built by the Austrians and the military Batteries of the First World War.
We recommend a path that will lead you through the green expanses dotting the Cavallino-Treporti coastline to discover the network of fortifications built during the two World Wars.
Navigation allows you to see places from a different point of view, to discern the corners of nature that would otherwise be invisible to the eyes. That is why, to discover the other side of Venice, we propose the discovery of its islands, fascinating for its natural beauty but also for its typical artistic richness.
Venice is just 30 minutes from the campsite and offers a standard itinerary. By boat you arrive directly in Piazza San Marco or you can reach the famous Venetian islands such as Burano whose gaudy-coloured houses guard the traditional lace artists. Murano, synonym of precious stained mouth blown glass windows. And Torcello village where you can see the Ponte del Diavolo and rediscover the landscapes described by Hemingway in his novel "Beyond the river and among the trees". These areas are also popular due to the wine and food; the fish offer is certainly significant but the production of perfect wine to be served with tasty meat dishes is also relevant.
Venice and the coast are known for seafood or meat seasoned with spices once carried by the ships from the East.
Among the best known courses are the Venetian liver with onions or octopus, spider crab, and tasty crab meat. For more traditional dishes, try pesse in saor (Venetian marinated fish), fried or marinated fish or bigoli with duck sauce. Cavallino, the Island of Torcello and the whole area have a wide choice of restaurants, farms and typical taverns "baccari" to enjoy these specialities. Another valid alternative, to be immersed in the history of the city, is a visit to the famous Rialto market. Venetian cuisine is a meeting of flavours tied to the lagoon area and the historical roots when Venice was a commercial port with intense trade exchange in the East. The products of the territory, such as fish, vegetables and spices, are the main Venetian ingredients, a true delight for the palate.
You can easily reach Venice in a short time, thanks to the frequent departure of boats. Discover the centre of Venice and its riches.
