Rovigo / Surroundings



Known as 'Little Mesopotamia' owing to its particular setting poised between land and water which provides a warm welcome in this zone of the province of Rovigo.

Rosolina is situated in one of the most varied and suggestive natural environments in the whole of Italy, with its ponds, rivers, sand dunes, lagoons, fishing valleys, the sea, and its priceless flora and fauna which combine to give a perfect portrait of nature.

Rosolina is found between the rivers Adige and Po and the Adriatic, and is of relatively recent origin, though ancient elements are now beginning to come to light.
The centre of the town contains the church of San Antonio built by the Sanudo, one of the families who acquired reclaimed land through auction by the Republic of Venice.

After fishing, vegetable cultivation and mitiliculture (mussel farming), Rosolina has discovered a major source of economy in beach holiday tourism: the 1970s saw the birth of Rosolina Mare, a resort lying on a peninsula balanced between beach and vegetation, river and sea, a place where holidays assume a true sense of relaxation without leaving aside the opportunities for excursions and sports on offer: from horse riding to tennis, sailing to beach volleyball and cycling. Everything is possible.

Rosolina possesses one of the last examples of Mediterranean scrub, with ilex and oaks, and the green pine forests which run behind the shores are a truly beautiful spectacle.

The botanical gardens of Porto Caleri merit a visit, lying on the extreme southern tip of the lido, where three guided routes take one past rare species of plants.

Holiday accommodation presents no problem: every type of solution, from hotels of all categories, holiday villages and campsites are offered.
