Treporti Fort, also known as Forte Vecchio, is a nineteenth-century fortress located on the Cavallino-Treporti coast, in the Punta Sabbioni area. It is one of the best-preserved fortifications in the northern Lagoon of Venice.
Punta Sabbioni Lighthouse
Punta Sabbioni is part of the municipality of Cavallino-Treporti, located at the southern end of the coast, which separates the Lagoon from the sea. It is located in front of the eastern side of Venice, from which it is about ten kilometres by water, while it is 60 km away by road.
Vettor Pisani Battery
This fortress was named in honour of the Venetian Commander-in-chief who defeated the Genoese fleet led by Pietro Doria in June 1380, during the War of Chioggia. It is a unique structure when compared to other Italian fortifications.
Parco Laguna Cavallino
It is a place that offers insight into the environment from which the city of Venice originated, preserving it intact. The Park is made up of dozens of islands and sandbanks, which are in turn crisscrossed by hundreds of natural channels. A unique lagoon environment, with a rich biodiversity of flora and fauna.
