VENETIAN VILLAS AND OSTERIAS

“Spending a day immersed in the tranquility of nature”  - This is what you will sign up for if you chose one of Travelsports’ sit-on-top kayak activates. Simple act of paddling will allow you to reach the new levels of freedom in one of the most beautiful river natural parks in Europe.

This amazing natural waterway route is 17km long and filled with nature’s most beautiful colours and sounds, taking  all your senses to the next level.

Starting point is from Travelsport outdoor center in Lughignano, Casale sul Sile. From here, after initial introduction briefing, you will board on a sit-on-top kayak and start your river adventure towards Quarto D’Altino. An hour later, on the left bank of the river,  you will reach St. Elena of Silea, great spot for a quick break and energy refuel (excellent food and wine). From there, after another hour in a water whilst passing along the timeless Venetian Villas and relicts of sank transport barges,  you will reach Casale sul Sile. Casale is another great sport full of character, great for an ice-cream break and a visit to a small colorful port filled with  traditionally lined houses,  church with Tiepolo frescos and a medieval river Watchtower (Torre dei Carraresi).

The last hour of your river adventure is towards Quarto D’Altino. This stretch of the river is the least crowded and completely immersed in the nature with the occasional reminder along the way of Sile’s historical importance of for both,  Treviso and Venice.

Once you have reached a strategic port of Quarto D’Altino, you can leave a kayak with the members of Travelsport team, and say goodbye to Sile, until the next time…
