Rovigo and its entire province retain the ancient charm of rural places, where the environment and traditions combine with the productive and entrepreneurial fabric. Here, in the south of Veneto, Italy’s two largest rivers, the Adige and the Po, create stunning landscapes that have served as film sets for great Italian directors.
The Po Delta, which has been recognised by Unesco MaB Reserve (Man and Biosphere), must be visited, with extending your stay past work: its typical bird life with over 350 different water species attracts thousands of birdwatchers every year.
Here the “great river” Po fans out, dividing into seven branches before reaching the Adriatic Sea. Along the coast, it creates oasis and “scanni”, sand bars formed over time by the course of the river, which then became islands that host excursionists brought by a short boat ride during the summer.
The land’s geomorphologic evolution, the youngest area in Italy with “only” 400 years of history, is demonstrated in an extraordinary way at the Botanical Garden of Porto Caleri – 30 hectares of coastline divided into educational trails of different lengths, where you can learn about the various stages of evolution in the creation of a pine grove and the wide variety of plants and flowers that can also be experienced by the visually impaired thanks to equipped itineraries.
Besides nature, there are also examples of industrial archaeology, museums, villas and churches that bear valuable witness to history, tradition and art.
