Caorle and Porto Margherita

Caorle is a natural port first used by the Romans to then become a refuge for the Venetians and Friulians escaping Attila the Hun.

Situated on the River Livenza, Caorle is home to one the largest fishing fleets in this part of the Adriatic between Venice and Trieste.

The lagoon is stunning and visitors should look out for the old thatched fisherman's workshops. It also inspired that man's man Ernest Hemingway who featured it in his work.

Caorle is also a great place to be based for discovering the wider area and hills of the Veneto Orientale towards Portogruaro inland.

Nearby Porto Margherita is a self contained summer resort with gelateria, boutiques, a marina etc enclosed by the beach and the canals of the lagoon.

The tourism board suggests 4 routes based on the themes of History, Natural Parks, DOC Wines and Irrigation.

The wine route takes in the National Exhibition of Wines at Lison-Pramaggiore while on the historical route at Stallis you can see the ruins of the 17th century windmill which inspired Ippolito Nievo to write 'Confessions of an Italian'.
