It would be difficult to give any other information about this site that isn't given in Tim & Cary's excellent 2006 review, except to say that in 2012 all is still as good, especially the helpfulness of the staff. Tim's tips for visiting Venice are equally valuable, especially car parking at Punta Sabbione (now 7euro), as the walk to the advertised Bus is nearly a mile each way from the site.

Regarding cost, in 2012 the site accepts the ACSI Discount card for limited periods at 16 euro's per night for 2 people, Pitch, Caravan/Tent and Electricity, which is very good value. As Tim says, at full price it is somewhat expensive, but no more so than any other all-facilities site on this coast.

The site sprays regularly to keep the mosquitos under control, but insect repellent will be a good investment as Mrs s/t suffered for not using any!

We spent 3 very happy weeks staying at Camping Cavallino this August 2006. This is one of the many sites spread along the east-facing beach of the Jesolo Peninsula to the east of Venice.

Cavallino was a pleasant site and we got a large pitch only a few metres from the beach on the Adriatic. The site takes both tents and caravans. We didn't book in advance and they found room for us even though we have a large twin-axle 'van. The site has a swimming pool, children's playground and some sports facilities but it is not an all-singing, all dancing type of site. The sea was lovely and warm and the beach sloped down gently. Although quite a large site it was peaceful and well organised with VERY HELPFUL English-speaking staff. One of the receptionists arranged for a local garage to order and fit a new spare tyre to replace a damaged on our caravan. There was a good small supermarket onsite and restaurant, too. One of the shop assistants not only sold me a top-up card for my mobile phone Italian SIM Card but found a multilingual colleague who phoned up and did the topping-up for me! The site is not, however, full of Brits rather more Italians, Germans and Dutch.

The boat to Venice from Punto Sabione was about 5 miles drive away. There was, also, a bus service but we chose to drive and park in the supervised car parks adjacent to the Ferry (5 Euros for the day). That meant we could catch early boats into Venice and late ones back in the evening. We stopped in one opposite the ferry departure point, although the owners of the many earlier car parks stand in the road and wave you into there parks in a very official looking way!

We purchased Venice Cards - from Tourist Info or Boat ticket offices. These are excellent value as they cover ALL the vaporetta (water buses), city-run museums and toilets (1 Euro entrance for loos otherwise). There are passes for longer periods, 3 and 7 days I think, but these have to be used on consecutive days and the tourist info lady advised us that would be rather tiring. I think she was right. We spent 3 separate days in Venice, with days lounging on the beach to recover in between.

We made VERY full use of the water buses. As well as travelling in on the larger boat direct to near St Mark's Square we, also, travelled up and down the Grand Canal numerous times, including at night when it is really romantic and magical. We also visited numerous other islands. Murano the glass blowing island is beautiful with its brightly painted houses and picturesque canals. Bellano has its lace making. Torchello with its ancient cathedral is almost deserted and a welcome break from the crowds. The Cathedral gives excellent views back across the lagoon to Venice - the tower is unusually accessed by sloping ramps, hardly any steps, a bit like the Escher picture. We reckoned one day that our boat trips would have added up to 50+ Euros each if we had been paying for trips separately so the Venice card is well worth the cost. The water buses are, also, a great way of relaxing when the crowds get too much. We, also, circled the main island by water bus several times, by day and night.

We would advise planning your itinerary carefully – we did this using the maps and guidebooks on our rest days back at the site. Even in 3 days we only scratched the surface. The crowds and queues near St Marks Square are horrendous. We got wise, however, and by, on one day, catching the 7.30 am boat from Punto Sabione managed to be 6th in the queue for St Mark’s. By the time we came out the queue was hundreds of people long. St Mark’s was worth well worth visiting both the free main part and the relatively cheap museums and treasury. St Mark’s Campanile gives stupendous views over the lagoon. The Civic Museum and Ducal palace, which were included in our Venice card, were interesting but perhaps a little overwhelming as there were SO MANY beautiful works of art in quick succession – we went there on a wet morning.

Our stay at Cavallino was finished with the grand finale of the 'Beach on Fire' firework display. This was a simultaneous firework display set off from 13 points along the beach including one just outside the campsite and it was really MAGNIFICENT, even by European firework display standards!

We hope to return to Italy next Summer, despite a major breakdown on the way home which we are still sorting out!

On a warning note the campsites in this area are quite expensive. We payed c£30 an night for the 'van and 2 adults. Much more expensive than France and, even, near Lake Como on the way down.

Food, drink and most everything else is very expensive in Venice. We took our own packed lunches and drinks and picnicked in the gardens near St Marks. Eating in Venice can be VERY EXPENSIVE. Beware the hidden, or at least not very clear cover charges, etc. For 2 of us to have a one course steak meal plus diet cokes to drink was £74.00. This was in a lovely spot overlooking the Grand Canal but the price was far more than it appeared from the menu displayed outside.

We visited the Lido once for a walk around but did not stay too long as I discovered my wallet had been lost/stolen and had to rush back to look for it! What we saw was not particularly impressive but then it has a lot to compete with on the main island.

We found the pocket size Berlitz guide and, also, a pocket size AA one useful for infomation. The Tourist information sell a good map of Venice which has an accompanying guide/key to the main sites and linked to the Vaporetta stops - very helpful and not too expensive and importantly up to date. The Venice Card, also, comes with a guide to the major sites which includes opening times, etc.
