Jesolo, the Cavallino Coastline and Punta Sabbioni

Jesolo

Some archaeological remains are proof that this was an ancient Roman centre, known as Jesolum and, in the period from the fall of the Empire to the birth of Venice, Jesolo was one of the most flourishing ports on the lagoon. Land reclamation led to the decline of the Jesolo lagoon, as it progressively became transformed into countryside. The most ancient relics in the town, like the large Romanesque cathedral, of which traces of the ancient walls remain, were destroyed during the First World War.
The economy of the town and its area is mainly based on Summer tourism and leading events, especially sports and popular events and trade fairs, take place during Spring and Summer.

The Cavallino Coastline and Punta Sabbioni

The area of the borough is a perfect example of the harmony between man and nature. It is made up of the Cavallino coastline, a strip of land that separates the Northern Lagoon from the Adriatic, while the Sile delimits the bordering area of Jesolo to the North East. It has 15 km of beaches that end at the Punta Sabbioni lighthouse and the Cavallino coastline is a nature reserve washed by clear waters where birdlife and fauna exist together with the cultivation of fruit and vegetables. Here, fishing in the salty basins of the breeding grounds is still carried out according to ancient traditions, with total respect for the surrounding area. The Cavallino coastline is characterised by small Lagoon villages like Ca’Vio, Ca’Savio and Lio Grando, with numerous tourism structures, campsites, hotels, villages and restaurants where you can enjoy typical seafood-based dishes and local produce.
