"Lio Piccolo" in Venice is the perfect place to go on a summer day when the heat is too much to take. I love going there by bike and used to do so daily!

If you like bike rides and history this is the perfect place for you to go on a summer day when the heat in Venice is really too much. Lio Piccolo is a little village of the Venetian Lagoon, easily reachable from Treporti. The best way to get there is without doubt by bike. My grandparents used to live in the village nearby so I went there almost everyday.

From the harbor of Ricevitoria it’s about a 10 kilometer ride, fully immersed in nature: from the little streets you can enjoy of a beautiful panoramic view of the lagoon.
Once you've arrived at the little village you'll notice that except for the few buildings and the church (you can even get up to the bell tower if you’re lucky enough) it’s prevalent agricultural: the typical product of the zone in fact are artichokes and jujubes.

Lio Piccolo, besides its beautiful landscapes and agricultural importance, has also a relevant history connected to the formation of the Venetian Lagoon because it was already inhabited by the Romans. Recently the authorities have opened a museum inside one building there where you can learn about the history of the place and see the remains of objects collected from the sea bottom.
