Quarto d’Altino

Comune di Quarto d’Altino is placed in an important position because of its nearness to Venice, Treviso, San Donà di Piave and Jesolo.
You can easily get here from the A4 highway Venezia-Trieste following the exit Venezia-est, or exiting in Quarto d’Altino if you’re coming from A57 highway.
There are public transportations to Treviso and Lido di Jesolo, there is also a railway station (line Venice-Trieste) with frequent and fast links to Venice.
In Quarto d’Altino, in Piazza Boscolo, there are some nice Simon Benetton’s sculptures (expert in figurative arts).
From Quarto d’Altino you can follow some interesting itineraries: the promenade along the embankment (called “Alzaia”) on the Sile river, and to the humid Zone of San Michele Vecchio; the ancient Via Claudia Augusta and “Percorso della Memoria”.
This town has a floating dock provided with a slide at the flood plain of the Sile river. It is also the departure point for touristic motor boats towards the lagoon.
The parish church dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo was built in 1905.Its red-brick façade has sober neoclassical lines. The interior has just one nave with a frontal high altar and, behind it, there is an organ built in 1908 with more than 1180 pipes. The cylindrical 56 meter high bell tower which was completed in 1956, presents a “ravennate” style. Its white-marble base wa engraved with the main benefactors’ names.
In late September, during Festa di San Michele, it is possible to get to the top of the bell tower going up along a spiral ramp. At the top there is a rotating steel sculpture representing San Michele Arcangelo made by G.Romanelli,a venetian sculptor.
