Bicycling in Venice!
Come by bike to Venice
So that it is perfectly clear, things that are forbidden in Venice:
Then why this heading? Simply because in the lagoon, on the islands of Lido, Sant' Erasmo or Pellestrina, where it is permitted, there are superb trails to be seen by bike.
One can also ride a bicycle on Terra Ferma, in Mestre and for Marghera but there, it is really necessary to want to so much since it is even more unpleasant than in Venice... to avoid!
Therefore every cycling-tourist can easily arrive in Venice by bike and enjoy his stay on the neighboring islands on two wheels. They can also be rented on the islands, to ask in Italian to rent a bike, say: Noleggio bici.
