The first stone lighthouses date back to the Roman age, and developed during the Renaissance and Baroque periods, to then take their current form and shape between the 18th and 19th centuries. Bibione Lighthouse is a majestic, white, early 20th building that rises from the mouth of the Tagliamento river, where the river meets the sea, creating a green area of great naturalistic interest, where Mediterranean flora combines with Alpine flora to create unexpected landscapes at every turn.
Trip to Bibione Lighthouse is one of the easiest bike trips. But there are many other possibilities for bike trips in Bibione. Because BIBIONE IS A CYCLING PARADISE
Do you like pedalling leisurely with the family on shady cycle paths in the heart of nature? Do you prefer to seek out pristine sites on your mountain bike? Or do you want to get some miles under your belt on the road? Bibione has something to offer cyclists of all kinds.
All cyclists love riding their bikes, but they can go about it in very different ways. Bibione wants to offer “bespoke” holidays to all of its guests, so it has catered to their varying needs by creating cycle paths and routes to suit everyone.
There is a cycle path running all of the way through the resort, with a circular route divided into two parts: the Adriatic Promenade, which is parallel to the beach and dotted with a delightful array of flowerbeds, palm trees and oleanders, and the town cycle path, which is a safe and enjoyable way of getting into town.
There are also nature trails for mountain bikes that lead to enchanting spots like the old lighthouse or out into the countryside, where there are numerous farms and wineries. In addition, it is possible to follow some marvellous routes to local events, museums and villages. The length of the routes varies from 6 to 12 kilometres.
Cyclists who like a tougher challenge can venture into the magical atmosphere of the River Tagliamento and see the old fishermen’s homes known as “casoni” in the Terzo Bacino area, or head inland on the Cesarolo circular route. These trails can be up to 70 km in length, but the landscape is truly breathtaking.
Visitors to Bibione can choose between a number of guides which contain all of the routes and any other essential information. They include the Bibione Cyclo Tourist Guide and Bike in Hand, which has some interesting recommendations for accommodation.
