THE POLESINE

CartinaThe Polesine is the name given to the province of Rovigo, an area situated between the low course of the rivers Adige and Pò, to which its history is strongly tied.  The Polesine is in fact, a land of waterways, dreamy landscapes and infinite atmospheres, an extraordinary natural stage, where water moves majestically, between flood plains and sandy islands, where the Pò, with its delta, arrives placidly to the sea through a labyrinth of waterways and cane fields, a paradise for a wide variety of wildlife.  Moreover, alongside an amazing natural environment, the province of Rovigo boasts a cultural wealth within its cities, its little villages, in the architecture of its villas, historic buildings and churches, in the museums, but also in its local traditions, its gastronomy and in the warmth of its people.  A rich territory of nature, history, art and culture which offers many opportunities, many different routes, so the traveller may enjoy a fantastic landscape and at the same time visit places which are rich in art and culture beside the river banks or which are criss-crossed by a canal, a little waterway, an ancient and friendly presence.  Places in which - thanks to the churches, historical dwellings, grand buildings, the villas- people savour history, the life of the past, where we can imagine the rituals, the customs, the events of the ordinary people, the families, the illustrious personalities who lived and operated in Polesine throughout its history.
And then there is the water… in the sea, the rivers, and the delta.  In the Veneto Regional Park of the Pò Delta, a marshy area which is renowned internationally and one of the most important natural parks in Italy and in Europe, water that in a succession of landscapes, routes and itineraries offers to the more sensitive visitor, to those who love to submerge themselves in nature, to listen its rhythms, to take in its scent, a really unique experience.
And we cannot forget the sea, its wide, fine sandy beaches, it shallow depths, ideal for holidays full of amusement and relaxation for everyone.
