Chioggia is an absolute treasure, providing a less excessive sand in your toes La Dolce Vita experience that we absolutely loved.
We left the chilly Aussie winter for the perfection of the Italian summer...like so many other Aussie's this year.
We also stayed a night in the region of Lombardy by the lake to visit one of our manufacturers and then hit the road down towards Venice stopping in the province of Treviso where we based ourselves for a week.
Over the bridge, on an island to the east are Sottomarina beach and Forte San Felice, a 14th-century fort. We really liked the vibe at beachside Sottomarina which is many Venetians weekend getaway.
