Full description

Bike through Sant’Erasmo Island on this tour from Venice. Experience the tranquil lagoon and idyllic fields. Appreciate the relaxed and traditional lifestyle of the island's 700 inhabitants.

Let your guide help you purchase water bus tickets to Sant'Erasmo island. Travel through the city's deep blue lagoon on the way to the island. Learn about how the island was a rural retreat for aristocrats and the main source of vegetable and fruit supplies for the Republic of Venice.

Disembark the boat and walk down a small road that passes canals and ditches. Stop to pickup your bike rental. Start from a 19th century fort which is sometimes used for art exhibitions and surrounded by a moat.

Ride along the lagoon, saltmarshes, and by a variety of crops like purple-hued artichokes. Take in views of wild landscapes while spotting the belfries of Venice from afar. Admire views of the San Nicolò harbour mouth at Lido island.

Head to a local family-owned honey farmer that produces saltmarsh honey. Try the unique flavors of honey made from flowers that grow in the salty soil. Reach the northern part of the island where you can just make out the colored houses of Burano.

View the San Francesco del Deserto monastery which is inhabited by Franciscan monks. Enter a church facing the lagoon to take in the local architecture. Have the option of taking a water bus back to Venice or staying on the island for dinner.
