Caorle is a town in the province of Venice, located between the mouth of the Livenza river and that of the Lemene, facing on the Adriatic Sea northeast of the Venetian lagoon, between the resort towns of Eraclea and Bibione. The Venetian town offers beachgoers over 250 hotels, two wharves for small boats and 18 kilometers of beach (awarded the blue European Clean Beach flag many times), divided into the East Beach and the West Beach, separated by a rocky cliffs; to the south are the districts of Porto Santa Margherita, Duna Verde and a new development, Lido Altanea. To the north, the Caorle lagoon is ideal for boat trips amid uncontaminated nature, that so impressed the writer Ernest Hemingway that he wrote about it in his book “Across the River and into the Trees”. Among the valleys and salt marshes are the typical “casone” structures on stilts, used by fishermen during the fishing season. Caorle is the only town on the Adriatic able to combine a fashionable resort atmosphere with a refined historic center, with its houses painted in bright colors scattered among the canals and around the plazas. Originally, the whole town was crisscrossed by a network of artificial canals that made it look like a miniature Venice, but most of them have now been covered over (they call them the “Rio terà”). A fisherman’s wharf is located in the center of town, and bears witness to the busy fishing industry and last traces of the canal network on this old island.
