Chioggia

Something about Chioggia

Chioggia is one of the most important towns in the province of Venice. It is famous for its port, for fishing, the salt pits, its crops, its cuisine and for its narrow streets, small squares, palaces and canals that are very similar to Venice, which can be reached from the town by private boat and by the ACTV public transport service. The main canal is the Canal Vena crossed by nine bridges. The most imposing is Ponte Vigo which is near the lagoon and the square with a high column topped by the lion of St. Mark, but which locals have ironically named ‘el gato’ (the big cat).

Sottomarina di Chioggia is one of the most important towns in the province of Venice, Italy, both for its tourism and for its history that for centuries intertwined with that of Venice itself.

Renowned for its port, the salt pits, its crops, its cuisine and for its narrow streets (the ‘calli’), small squares (the ‘campielli’), palaces and canals that are very similar to those of Venice, it can be easily reached from the world’s most romantic city by private boat or by ACTV public transport service. A must see is of course also its fine sand beach.
