Falkensteiner Destination Tips, Part 7: Jesolo – Cultural Insights into the Venice Region

“Where should we start?”: When we were compiling our seventh destination tip, this question crossed our minds more than once. And indeed: Jesolo, a city on the Italian Adriatic and one of the most popular destinations for Austrians, does not make it easy to find tips off the beaten track. And rightly so, because the town’s 25,000 inhabitants are joined by more than 5 million tourists every year – and mostly in the summertime! You are well advised to have experts on site who know the region and also know less frequented sights – as we do with our colleague Romina Zanella, Marketing & Events Manager of our Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Jesolo. Here are her insider tips to enjoy your holiday in the Veneto region pleasantly and far away from the hustle and bustle!
Pure nature in the lagoon
A little paradise in the Venice lagoon is Valle Cavallino: as one of the largest nature reserves in the region, it serves to preserve the local flora and protect the fauna in equal measure. “Imagine immersing yourself in this magical place and enjoy at least one day of relaxation, with good food – and why not with adventures in nature.
Valle Cavallino is the perfect place for this and a complete contrast to the beach, seafront and hustle and bustle.”
The Italian Way of Cruising
What is more representative of Italy than cruising the rolling hills of Prosecco Superiore on a Vespa, lined with vines and passing through picturesque villages? That’s right: nothing! Vespa Rent Dolomiti makes this dream come true: Complete packages including Vespa, helmets, equipment and roadbook are available here from €69 per day. “Not only the Adriatic coast has a lot to offer, but the interior of the region north of Jesolo and Venice also invites you to linger. The four tours on offer are self-explanatory thanks to the roadbook. On each route, you will find various tasting points, hidden sights and anything but crowded paths!”
Experience Venice’s culture from the water
An unusual way to dive deep into Venetian culture is to take a boat trip on the Edipo Re in the heart of the Venice Lagoon: for several years, the non-profit organisation of the same name has been involved in projects aimed at enhancing, growing and protecting the territorial heritage. “Guided by values such as sustainability, social inclusion, regionality, art and communication, a practical idea of sustainable tourism is worked on board. The distinguishing element of Edipo Re is therefore the mission to connect different skills and knowledge with social institutions, associations and companies with different cultural and productive backgrounds.”
The Edipo Re has a long history: After sailing from coast to coast for decades, the yacht became the scene of extraordinary crossings for painter Giuseppe Zigaini in the late 1950s, who transformed it into a meeting place for visionaries. Today, the Edipo Re is back on the water, offering passengers new encounters and new adventures with rare glimpses of Venetian cuisine and culture. *** Guests can experience the Venice region from where it is most alive at the Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Jesolo: here, guests young and old will find the perfect starting point for exploring along the coast and inland.
