Trips and excursions in the lagoon
The Venetian Lagoon consists of shallow pools of water furrowed by natural and artificial canals, from lands that are periodically submerged by the tide and islands on which the inhabited centers rise. Located between the Adriatic Sea and the fertile Venetian plain, the Venice Lagoon, with its 550 km2 surface, is the largest wetland in the Mediterranean. The lagoon is separated from the sea by thin sandy beaches such as: the Cavallino peninsula, the island of Lido and the coast of Pellestrina. The sea communicates with the Lagoon through the interruptions of these shores called “mouths of port” and are the mouths of the port of Lido, Malamocco and Chioggia. The entire lagoon area, in addition to hosting urban centers unique in the world for historical and architectural heritage, is the habitat of a very high number of natural and plant species, to be protected and protected.
