Biking in Venice is forbidden. Yet, there are two islands in its lagoon where you can bike around. One is Sant’Erasmo. Sant’Erasmo is pure countryside, sea and land in one, a vaste of fields and vineyards, few scattered houses, a wild beach, a defence tower. Very, very green. The size of two-thirds of Venice, the second biggest island. And “bikeable”. Unknown to most, Venetians love it. Its violet-hued artichokes are famous worldwide. What about a tasting? Then, from the farmlands of Sant’Erasmo, a trip across the shallow waters of the salty marshes as far as Burano, the island of colors and lacemaking. What about learning fishing with stationary nets together with a native fisherman?
