Cavallino Things to Do

  • La Chiesa Parrocchiale - From the late...

    It was definitely a shame that the church La Chiesa Parrocchiale was being renovated and restored. The beautiful front façade was surrounded by scaffolding because of this renovation. Still we were allowed to go in and that was of course very nice of the construction workers. There was not very much information present to study and therefore a bit...

  • La Chiesa Parrocchiale - Lighting a...

    Although we were quite early when we first arrived at the La Chiesa Parrocchiale we were already allowed to enter it. A huge advantage of our early arrival was the fact that there were absolutely no tourists at all. Don’t expect busses loaded with tourists here anyway. Whenever we visit a church the kids always want to burn a candle, it has become...

  • La Chiesa Parrocchiale - View of the...

    What to expect from the village of Cavallino? That is a very good question and the answer is “not too much”. We were here, because we had our summer holiday of 2013 at the camping of Cavallino and did enjoy our time here. We only visited the village of Cavallino itself once and that was more than enough to be honest. Cavallino is situated at the...

  • Beach area - Tinto de Verano.

    The only downside to visiting the beaches is it gets busy at sometimes. But just arrive in time and you will find a parking place for the car and a good spot on the sandy beach anyway. We enjoyed ourselves very much by swimming, writing messages in the sand, have a homemade picnic, threw some frisbee, building sand castles, read some book, did some...

  • Beach area- An amazing beach.

    Because we stayed at Cavallino for the summer we were able to visit more than just one beach. In our first few days we ended up at the beach at Cavallino, which is without doubt one of the most attractive beaches I have visited. From some locals we heard that this particular beach has been regularly voted one of the best places to visit in this...

  • Beach area - Stunnig coastline.

    If you like to stay near stunning coastlines on your camping holidays, Italy is an excellent choice of destination. The country has two seaboards to choose from: the Mediterranean and the Adriatic Sea, all with an exceptional climate and a coastline which offers a whole world of possibilities. And particularly if you're one of those people who...

  • Sagrato Chiesa Nuova - Urban...

    Once we were in front of the Sagrato Chiesa Nuova of Cavallino gave us this feeling of being humble without even being religious at all. Not that the building is so spectacular, but it is quite large and that impressed me a bit. Another large ‘object’ right in front of the church is the huge square. This all is part of a new “promenade” that is...

  • Sagrato Chiesa Nuova - Not to light a...

    Although we were quite early when we first arrived at the Sagrato Chiesa Nuova we were not allowed (or able) to enter it. A huge disadvantage of our early arrival was the fact that there were no people around to have a chat with and trying to have some solid information about this church and knowing if you’re allowed to go in anyway. Whenever we...

  • Sagrato Chiesa Nuova - Weird building.

    Maybe I am a bit of emotional about this, but for sure I can say that seeing the tower of the church called Sagrato Chiesa Nuova at the skyline of the small village of Cavallino almost made me cry. I was born and raised in Hoorn (Netherlands) and this is a beautiful historical city with lots of amazing facades and old churches to admire. Therefore...

Cavallino Restaurants

  • Traditional dishes.

    We ran into the restaurant a bit by accident. Just wandering through some of the streets of Cavallino we saw it and decided to have our lunch here. Don’t expect anything fancy, it is a typical and simple Italian restaurant. The design is local with its wooden benches outside, nice place to sit down. It offered us traditional dishes based on a...

  • No restaurant can top this.

    Making your own food at the campsite is simply a great way to spend time with friends and family, to entertain and to simply enjoy your background. Having a so called “meal at home” is becoming increasingly popular and the eating out is decreasing, probably a budget thing. But anyway, it brings your cooking outside – so you don’t have to miss out...

  • Bit of a fastfood joint.

    The Camping Cavallino has all the necessary services available. The friendly reception and its 'I' point provide all the useful information of the camping itself, the region and its places of interest you could wish for. There is also a large bar-restaurant pizzaria with terraces, an ice-cream parlour and a handy take-away and pizzeria for those...

    Reading a book.

    by Jerelis Written Aug 27, 2013

    Wondering what to pack for your next vacation? Yes, we always have some stress related to this issue. As an experienced traveler I always combine some days to relax with some days to explore the surroundings, beautiful historical cities or hiking the amazing National Parks. So I can easily say that whenever I am on vacation, I often want to relax, escape and unwind. There is nothing quite like a good book to accomplish these things.

    Being away for many days on a vacation break will of course give you a great chance of getting your head into a good book or two, but which books should you choose to take with you? I do take along some ‘beach books’: a good beach book is engaging and a quick enough read that you can finish most of it on the beach before my sunscreen wears off. A beach book isn't necessarily literature, but a beach book that will entertain. With these beach books in my hand, all I need to remember is my towel and sunscreen.

    But some literature is also coming along, because having a vacation, whatever the time of year, usually makes me turn my thoughts to which good book should we take with me? Sitting in my comfortable chair after a beautiful day with long walk, reading a good book in the evening makes it complete.

    Dress Code: Doesn't matter ... wear whatever you want.

    Paulien is reading a book. Some nice drinks to go along with the reading. Reading my book.

Cavallino Transportation

  • How to get to Venice.

    For us it was an important question “How to get to Venice from Cavallino?”. The first option was by car and a one hour drive to do so. But there is of course the problem of getting a good parking spot for the car and what it would cost. Therefore we asked around what the options were if we didn’t want to go with the car. We found out that in the...

  • Travelling with (young) kids.

    Are you nervous about taking your baby or child on a plane trip? You aren't alone, most parents are nervous about it. We have moved with Iris to Callantsoog by car this holiday and drove some distances by car on when we were there and we learned a few things that hopefully will help you. General: Bring books, old favourite toys and new surprise...

Cavallino Shopping

  • Just nice to have a look.

    What to do at a night at the campsite of Cavallino? Of course there is entertainment for the kids to have a look at. Music and other fun things are organized till 11 o’clock in the evening and after that everything is quiet, which is good. But being an adult it is also good to know that every night there is a little market at the main square of the...

  • Hive of activity.

    In general we can state that markets are some of the traditional and most popular local tourist events. Cavallino has a special market area at the Via Fausta and this part of the road is closed at Friday morning especially for the market. This weekly market has a nice size and therefore attracts tourists from surrounding areas. We saw everything...

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Cavallino Local Customs

  • Talko to someone who knows ...

    I guess we all agree on this on; there is nothing more exciting than going travelling - exploring another country, experiencing a different culture, travelling around in new ways, sampling the local cuisine and chatting to the local people for a different perspective on life.However during our travels we learned that there is one certain thing that...

  • Birra Moretti

    Let’s make no secret of it. We both like a nice cold glass of beer. Being at our travel pace is always a challenge to find a beer we like, which reflects our taste of having a beer. At Cavallino (and this probably counts for our entire surrounding of Cavallino-Treporti) it was rather difficult. We found out that there are a few local beers, only...

  • Voltage, frequency and plug ins.

    Maybe it sounds a bit weird, but as an experience traveler I know that you every now and then need this kind of information in advance: electricity in Italy is 230 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. If you travel to Italy with a device that does not accept 230 Volts at 50 Hertz, you will need a voltage converter.There are three main types...


Cavallino Warnings and Dangers

  • Do drink enough!!!

    For years, we have all been told of the importance of water. The general guideline has been to drink 2 litre of water each day. For a person who is not living an active lifestyle this may be enough, but if you are physically active, you need more water than that. That is especially true if you are hiking in the Callantsoog area due to the fact the...

  • Reading a map!

    Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, the catchy title of the 1992 bestseller by John Gray, succinctly expresses an ancient dilemma. What--if anything--do men's and women's brains do differently?The general statement that men and women respond and behave differently under the same circumstances is true; For example, from the crib, male babies...

Cavallino Off The Beaten Path

  • Venice - Our 'game plan' strategy.

    Most people try to rush Venice on a budget so they end up missing some of the highlights in a whirlwind. The key to seeing Venice properly is a game plan, you must know what you want to see before setting out. For example: we wanted to see the Squeoro di San Trovaso (the most picturesque gondola workshop of Venice) and planned our hike in the...

  • Venice - Picturesque corners of...

    To be honest, I was quite thrilled to show the amazing city of Venice to Paulien and mostly to my children. It is probably a must see location if you like to travel, Venice is unique and you must have been there once in your lifetime at least! For Venice, the canals have always been the natural means of getting around. I knew for instance that in...

  • Venice - To roam the narrow streets and...

    Before we visited the city of Venice I could say that I was already been to this beautiful city twice. Therefore I already knew that the best way to explore the city of Venice is by foot and the second best way is also by foot! Besides giving you the opportunity to roam the narrow streets and piazzas, it is the quickest way too. If you really want...


Cavallino Sports & Outdoors

  • Hiking - Disapponting indeed.

    It truly isn’t possible try to rush Cavallino on a budget and ending up missing some of the highlights in a whirlwind. The key to seeing Cavallino properly is just parking your car at the Piazza Santa Maria Elisbeth (for free) and you don’t even have a game plan, or must know what you want to see before setting out. Before we visited Cavallino we...

  • Hiking - Viewpoint at the lagoon.

    Usually when we visit a town we like to take some time to meander - losing ourselves in the maze of alleys, streets and lanes. This is not what we found in Cavallino. The streets are rather straight forward and only at the little historical part near the lagoon we found some alleys that wind and wander with no discernible order or object. But...

  • Hiking - Not all that much!

    Cavallino is a small village with a little bit of history. To me it is not clear when the small village of Cavallino was founded, but in the surrounding landscape some relics of an ancient civilization were found, dating back to 5BC. What I did find out was that around 1600 Cavallino had a bit of growth as it became a minor harbour town. Round...
