Through the historical towns of the coast
Once beyond the Pordelio Canal, you will reach the village of Treporti, and see the Church with the two typical bell towers. Continue along the embankments of the Zanella Valley, up to Saccagnana, with its historical rural court of 'Pra', overlooking a refined rural villa and the ancient little church built by the first inhabitants of the island. The itinerary ends at Lio Piccolo, along the coast with typical fishing valleys.
The embankments extend along the lagoon separating living and flowing waters from the clear and fertile waters, with houses scattered or grouped to form amazing settlements. This is the lagoon where visitors perceive natural sounds and scents intact, as a thousand years ago.
