December Vacation – Part 4 – Comacchio



Comacchio is the most original and fascinating  historic town in the Po Delta – a maze of canals, brightly colored buildings and bridges.




Fought over by Ferrara and Ravenna, Popes and Emperors for centuries, its origins go far back: it rose up on 13 islets at the dawn of the Middle Ages and founded its urban and economic development exclusively on the water.

Fishingfish-breeding in the lagoon and producing salt were the source of its prosperity and also of its setbacks as they brought it into conflict with Venice.

Today, Comacchio still boasts unique, intact architectural features; a town of charming canals, palaces and monumental bridges, inhabited by people with a strong sense of identity who are proud of their origins.

the intriguing Tre Ponti








The Po River Delta – a unique habitat and a UNESCO site since 1997 – is world famous for its flora e fauna, boasting 0ver 350 species of birds.  The Natural Park attracts birdwatchers from all over the world.




 The seven lidi (beaches) all have their distinct personalities along a beautiful stretch of the Adriatic Coast.

Whenever we are nearby, we make an effort to stop at the Trepponti Fish Market in Comacchio to stock up on the freshest fish just unloaded from the boats.
