Porto Levante, located on one of the countless islets formed by the delta of river Po, has a very nice marina, where boats can dock and benefit from many modern services. It is also an ideal starting point for taking boat tours and trips around the delta and beyond, or going deep-sea fishing.
Going north you will get to the village of Rosolina. Its seaside area, called Rosolina Mare, is a very popular seaside destination, where both adults and kids can have fun in one of the many holiday resorts along the long and sandy beach, surrounded by beautiful pine wood.
Another not-to-be-missed attraction of Rosolina is "Giardino Litoraneo Botanico di Porto Caleri", (Botanical Garden) pic n°4, a spectacular and very famous naturalistic oasis established in 1991. Around 10 ecosystems live here wild and free, with more than 200 species of flora and many species of animals: it is a real natural paradise!
Do not miss the green Isola di Albarella, Albarella Island, pic n°5 located in front of Rosalina and overlooking the Botanical Garden. The island is another popular tourist destination with many tourist services.
The last stop of our tour is Chioggia pic n°6. The historic center of this city is located on an island crossed by some canals and linked to the mainland by just a few roads. For this reason, Chioggia is often called "the little Venice". The most beautiful channel is Canal Vena, crossed by 9 bridges, the most impressive one is Ponte Vigo.
If you are interested in museums, here you can visit "Museo Civico della Laguna Sud", the "Zoological Museum" and "the Museum of Sacred Art". There are also many attractive churches to be visited: among them, the twelfth-century "Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta", the "Basilica of San Giacomo Apostolo", the eighteenth-century "Church of Sant'Andrea" with the Clock Tower nearby, and "The Church of Santissima Trinità".
