This gravel route will lead you to discover mills and villages of other times in the Northeast Veneto, along dirt roads, undergrowth, cycle paths and back roads.

We will start from Caorle,a famous seaside town, with the 3rd edition of the "Gravel dei Mulini". We will cross the woods of Bandiziol and Prassaccon (1) and continue towards the first mill of Belfiore (2), dating back to the 15th century. Continue through secondary roads towards Sesto al Reghena where we will visit the majestic Benedictine abbey of Santa Maria in Sylvis (3) of the 7th century. A dirt cycle path will lead us to the mills of Stalis (4) on the River Lemene and then to the fountain of Venchiaredo immersed in the Ippolito Nievo Literary Park.

Next you cross Cordovado, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy,entering through the gates of the old castle. We will pass through the characteristic Boldara mill surrounded by rich vegetation and reach Portogruaro (5), with one last beautiful mill perfectly set in the historic center of the city. We will reach the city of Concordia Sagittaria with its remains of roman times and through secondary and dirt paths we will reach the Wood of the Blades,rich in squirrels and hares. Finally we will descend towards Caorle (6), to browse through its colorful streets and pass by the casoni, ancient fishermen's houses, and then return towards the arrival for a well-deserved beer.
