About Venetian Lagoon

Travelers who do not mind exploring new places would definitely love to move beyond Venice’s central districts and explore the Venetian Lagoon. Venice, mostly a crowded city with a combination of houses, churches, palazzi, city squares, and different ancient as well as new manmade structures has very limited public green spaces. Mostly burdened with stone and brick city locations, the surrounding bodies of water offer a delightful variation. Laguna Veneta or the Venetian Lagoon, the crescent-shaped water body between the Italian mainland and the Adriatic Sea dotted with low-lying islands is embraced by stripes of lands including Litorale Pellestrina, Litorale di Lido, and Litorale del Cavallino. Broken at three entrances or porti along about thirty 30 miles length, a marshy environment fed by water from rivers and also regularly flushed by saline water of the Adriatic Sea has been created. The lagoon is much more than just a scenic spot or a picturesque backdrop; it’s an integral part of Venetian life. Teaming with aquatic life including anemones, crabs, barnacles, cuttlefish, mussels, oysters, shrimp and various fish, the average depth of the Venetian Lagoon is only two feet. It’s also a bird watcher paradise with ducks, cormorants, spoonbills and many other birds nesting on smaller uninhabitable islands in the lagoon.
