Italy, Caorle – Ideal for Family Vacation

Published: 28.7.2022
Summer is in full swing. We take you to a place which is great for families. A serene location, sandy beach, shallow coastline…

We are talking about the Italian town of Caorle, located in the province of Venezia in the Veneto region. It is about 750 km from the Czech Republic. It is a distance that can be managed relatively well by car. But of course you can fly over there.


The city was founded more than 2,000 years ago. It was originally a village of fishermen and shepherds. It is interesting that it first spread out on the island at the mouth of the river (as well as Venice) and the name means Goat Island.

The local beach is sandy and the entrance to the sea is very slow. Which is one of the reasons why the holiday is suitable for families with children - no one (especially) with young children wants to be near the water, where there are stones and a steep slope into the water. The beach is almost 18 kilometers long and more than 50 meters wide on average. There are toilets and showers right on the beach. Along is a beautiful promenade and all around bars, restaurants, but also sports facilities such as playground for ball games, playground and can rent a boat or pedal boat.

If you get tired of the beach, you can visit Aquafollie. This water park is just 5 minutes from the center of Caorle. There is, for example, a 150-meter long toboggan, a wild river, a paddling pool for the youngest children, and of course refreshments.

The city has its interesting sights. St. Stephen's Cathedral, which dates back to 1038 and is a Byzantine style, is dominant. From the outside, it consists of a simple façade decorated with reliefs of Saint Agatonica and Saint Vilém. There are some interesting gems inside, such as the golden altar and the "Last Supper" painting by Georgia Lazzarini. The tower is 48 meters high, so you can easily find and miss the place.

Right next to the Church of the Virgin Mary. Its contemporary appearance dates back to the 18th century. Legend has it that when fishermen once sailed on the sea, they saw the light headed for the statue of the Virgin Mary and the baby, and came to her and took him ashore. But because the sculpture was so heavy that they could not take it anywhere, they had to leave it right by the sea and the church was built right here.

Caorle is only 70 km north of Venice. So if you're so close, be sure to come here. If you want to completely avoid driving a car and having a busy parking in Venice, I recommend a boat trip. The ship departs on weekdays from the port of Caorle (at Piazza Papa Giovanni XXIII) and takes about two hours. Seeing Venice from the ship has its charm. If you do not want to spend two hours on the road, you can drive to the port of Punta Sabbioni, where the trip takes about half an hour. And just this beautiful trip you can end your holiday in Caorle.
