San Michele al Tagliamento is a municipality in the province of Venice, located in the further Eastern area of the province, on the border with Friuli Venezia Giulia. The town can be divided into three districts: one closest to the sea, enriched by a thick pine forest, a second one in the central plains and a third one in the northern area, variously cultivated with an interesting landscape. Among the districts, worthy of note is Bibione, a popular spa and seaside resort, that attracts many tourists thanks to its modern and comfortable facilities, the presence of a beach of fine golden sand (approx. eight kilometers long) and a large pine forest.
The area was already a preferred destination since Roman times, frequented by those who wanted to relax and receive the benefits of the spa treatments and evidenced by the discovery of several patrician residences. The town submitted the domain of the Serenissima Republic of Venice, who ruled here for four centuries, it became seat of the customs, manned by guards, active until the XIV century, was later abandoned because of the natural effect of the rising of the sea level. Subsequently the area submitted a period of Austrian government (only exception was a short period of Napoleonic rule) and then, in 1866, it was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy. The foundation of the present main centre has quite recent origins, as it was established in the 50's of the XX century.
