The borders of the ancient historical town of Caorle, with its Roman cathedral and cylindrical bell tower, give way to more modern structures as you get closer to the town centre . The many hotels, camp sites and seaside resorts can be found slightly further north and near to the lagoon. Here you will find a peaceful oasis where the water flows past the windswept reeds and where straw fishing huts can be seen dotted here and there.
