Marano Lagunare

The Venetian lagoon extends eastward into Friuli, where tiny, thatched fishermen’s huts, called casoni, are scattered among the marshy islands. Marano Lagunare—originally a Venetian settlement and today a quiet fishing village—rests peacefully amid the lagoon. Vividly colored houses are characteristic of this small town, home to one of the region's best seafood restaurants, Trattoria Alla Laguna (also known as Vedova Raddi). The surrounding wetlands are part of two protected nature reserves, the Foci dello Stella and the Valle Canal Novo.
