The lighthouse sits at the mouth of the Tagliamento River at Bibione. Apparently the area surrounding the lighthouse is considered one of the more spectacular natural areas in the region. Here's a portion from an italian WWF (World Wildlife Fund) webpage:

The mouth of the Tagliamento River, or lighthouse area, together with the Val Grande (lagoon) is certainly the most important owing to the multitude of different environments: the coastline, dunes, pine woods, retro-dunal depressions, damp meadows, grasslands, hydrich woods, fluvial dunes and the damp area of the Revelino. Here we find the most surprising FLORA and FAUNA resulting from the geographical position which is under the influence of Mediterranean, central European and balcan climates.

It appears there's a battle between environmentalists and the surrounding town governments over what to do with the area. The lighthouse is stuck in the middle of it all. :-)

Directions: map of area

  • From the A4 north of Venice take SP75 south to SS354.
  • Take SS354 south into Bibione.
  • Once in town make your way to the Rio Tagliamento. At the mouth of the river where it empties into the Adriatic Sea, you'll find the lighthouse.
