Caorle

Relaxation, fun and eighteen kilometres of sandy coastline

Caorle is a renowned seaside destination with more than eighteenï kilometres of a sandy coast. Wandering the streets of the town tourists will be fascinated by the fishing port that interlocks in the old historic centre that has been transformed into a pedestrian area. This area is filled with pastel coloured houses, streets and squares reminiscent of the Venetian vocation of the city giving it a rarefied atmosphere.

The church of Madonna dell'Angelo on the cliff is a reminder of the spirit of the inhabitants of Carole who have dedicated their lives to fishing for centuries. The antique roman-style Duomo dominates the historical centre. It is beside a circular bell tower that in the past was a watchtower for this city.

The sea-side city has two docks built for the mooring of boats: Porto Santa Margherita, able to hold up to 800 boats and Duna Verde, a few kilometres from the historical centre of Caorle, also known as the "garden city" because of its urban characteristics. 
The area that surrounds Caorle has a nature that is worth discovering by boat with pleasurable excursions in the Northern area of the Lagoon. Lastly, golf lovers will find the Golf Club Prà delle Torri at seven kilometres from the seaside city. The golf course has a relaxing 18 holes that can become an obstacle even for the most expert golfers.
