Just 20 minutes' drive from Camping Village Garden Paradiso is Cortellazzo: a hamlet of Jesolo near the mouth of the River Piave. Here, you can take a peaceful and relaxing trip out of town: unlike other areas near Jesolo, Cortellazzo stands out for its tranquillity and wide green spaces.
Although the town is small and has just over 1,000 inhabitants, the streets are full of shops and boutiques to explore, as well as a lot of restaurants and farmhouses where you can sample the local cuisine.
In particular, we recommend you to visit the beach and pine forest of Cortellazzo: two enchanting places that will allow you to appreciate the beauty of nature!
If you are in Cortellazzo, you cannot miss the pine forest: a large wooded area of 16,500 square metres characterised by domestic pines and a great variety of plants. Inside the wood you will find the Pineta Park: one of the most famous green areas in the Jesolo area, created by the famous Portuguese landscape architect João Ferreira Nunes. Here, you can enter the heart of the forest, reading the various information boards and breathing in the scent of the trees.
For history lovers, we recommend a visit to one of the World War II bunker a few steps away from the pine forest: an alternative experience that takes you back in time!
Although over the years the sea is eroding Cortellazzo's sandy shore little by little, there are still several beaches and areas in the town where you can relax. Among these, we suggest you visit the Foce del Piave: from here you can catch a glimpse of the pine forest of the Mort lagoon and the Vallevecchia nature reserve.
The special feature of the Cortellazzo beaches, however, are the swans that often come from the river: a unique opportunity to take an unforgettable picture!
Among the festivals and fairs held in Cortellazzo, the Maritime Festivals are certainly the most famous. The events are held every year from 25 April to 1 May with processions on the water and food stands.
On the last Thursday of August, the 'Cuoco in Piazza' event takes place: a gastronomic review in which every restaurant takes to the square with a typical dish. The 'Beer Festival', during the first weeks of September
, is also to be noted in the agenda.
