Cavallino is part of the province of Venice on the eastern edge of the Veneto region. The saltwater Venetian Lagoon has been listed, along with Venice, as a UNESCO World Heritage site and offers plenty for the summer tourist.
The eastern shore of the Cavallino-Treporti area is lined with golden sandy beaches where holidaymakers can relax with a good book or take part in sports such as swimming, windsurfing or diving. Families will enjoy the two aqua parks on the coast, which include slides, water games, Jacuzzis and tropical solaria, and there are plenty of activities such as golf and horse riding to keep everyone entertained.
Across the lagoon are the historic city of Venice, once a major maritime power and home of the renowned traveller Marco Polo, the island of Murano, famous for its glass and the island of Burano with its brightly coloured houses. These islands are popular for day trips thanks to their close proximity to the mainland, and Cavallino is an ideal place from which to explore the surroundings.
