Itinerary 2

    Leaving the Bay of San Marco, we will go around the fascinating islands of the lagoon and then go along the island of  Lido di Venezia a long narrow island that encloses the lagoon from the sea until we find the old settlement of  Malamocco. A short walk will bring you to the defensive structure from the sea  “ murazzi ” (walls) . Once back in the boat we cross the mouth of the port to arrive at the island San Pietro in Volta e Pellestrina, where one can admire a large fishing fleet and understand the way of life of these fishing villages.
On our return we go along the canal ‘dell’Orfano’, towards the ancient islands of Poveglia, San Clemente and le Grazie returning once again to Venice.


Sites to visit:

- Island of San Lazzaro degli Armeni
This island belongs to the Armenian Congregation Mechitarista with its monastery; On a guided tour given by the fathers, they will take you around the garden to the cloister and church. Inside the monastery one can see an important library and museum of ancient and oriental texts and artefacts.

Malamocco
Malamocco is a picturesque fishing village near the seafront on the Lido di Venezia, an island that lies between the sea and the lagoon.  Because it is surrounded by a small canal it makes it an island within an island. Its name comes from the antique Roman city of Metamauco, which disappeared around 1100 probably following an exceptional sea tide. For a period it was the site of the Venetian dogado (doge’s government).

 
- Murazzi
An imposing and fascinating construction for the defence of the sea. Built by the Venetian Republic of the Serenissima. Started around the 17th century, it extends for kilometres along the sea coast. 


Alberoni
Located on the far end towards the south of the costal island Lido di Venezia, near the entrance to the port of Malamocco. It has one of the most interesting naturalistic areas of the Venetian lagoon,  an oasis protected by the WWF " Dune degli Alberoni " a nature park that has resisted the advancement of the tourist beaches: It is made up of a vast area of sand dunes and marine pines where one can frequently see typical wildlife.


San Pietro in Volta and Pellestrina
Two small groups of houses and fishing boats where one can breath a particular atmosphere of going back in time. Everyone knows each other and the doors of the houses are nearly always open. The sea air often has with the aroma of grilled fish.
