UNESCO decided to preserve Venice and its lagoon where you can find Chioggia.

Here below you can find two itineraries about Discovering Chioggia, the little Venice, its lagoon and its local food.

 

ITINERARY OPTION ONE DISCOVERING CHIOGGIA

Arrival in Chioggia in the morning with your own bus and walk along the main street “Corso del Popolo” up to Piazza Vigo, just in front of the Venetian lagoon. You will board on a private  boat for a 2- hours navigation throughout the lagoon. The Captain will explain you stories and legends of Chioggia, satisfying all your curiosities about the fishing world.

Navigating these expanse of open water and lands of natural interest you can admire countless mussel parks and numerous species of birds, such as seagulls, herons and sterns, until you will ship to a typical wood floating restaurant called “Cason” or as an alternative in a marina restaurant with a wonderful view on the lagoon. There you will taste a delicious fish lunch, using all local products.
