On the way back from the Alberoni to the centre, we suggest you to walk or ride by the XVIII century Murazzi, reaching the Excelsior Hotel and the Casino area. Here rose another old fortress called “Quattro Fontane” and now, in its place, between sea and lagoon you can see the Casino and the “Palazzo del Cinema”, built during the thirties. They are the ideal places for many international events, such as the Film festival, taking place every year at the beginning of September.

Early view of the historic center, S.M. Elisabetta

Just keep going along Via Dardanelli, flanked by liberty-style houses and gardens, and you will get to the Gran Viale, the all planted with trees, a wide road which stretches all through the island from lagoon to sea, connecting the old district of S.Maria Elisabetta where you can still find some small, renovated XIX century hotels, with the Blue Moon, the brand new building facing the sea.


A shady lagoon promenade, flanked by many liberty-style houses, takes you from the Votive Church of S.Maria Elisabetta, built after World War II in the main square, to S.Nicolò, which once was the biggest fortress of the island. Nowadays you can still visit the XVII century church with its cloister, where the Serenissima used to celebrate the “Sea wedding” on Ascension day : the same ceremony still takes place by parading decorated boats.

The old Hebrew Cemetary

Do not miss the old and charming HEBREW CEMETARY, built in 1389,which has been restored and can be easily visited.

Just nearby, you can see the NICELLI AIRPORT, where small private jets and some tourist planes can land. Flights to Venice are permitted as well as parachute drops.
