Top 5 travel tips
Located close to your vacation rental in downtown Adria, an extensive museum visit is recommended to refresh your historical knowledge. The National Archaeological Museum with all its ancient exhibits is a cultural highlight. In the modern rooms you will be impressed by impressive busts, well-preserved excavations and restored rock finds from Roman times. Discover the artistic diversity of Roman frescoes and learn more about the Etruscan people as committed founders of the small town of Adria.2nd visit of the venerable Adriatic Cathedral
Experience the beauty of the Roman Catholic landmark in the heart of Adriatic during a visit to the venerable Adriatic Cathedral. The special core of the Adriatic Cathedral can be seen when looking inside the church: As the former seat of the "Diocese of Adriatic", the new church building in honour of Saint Peter and Paul was erected in the early 19th century on the foundations of a 14th century cathedral. During a stability test of the old stud work carried out in 1830, the experts uncovered a Byzantine vault together with several frescoes. Also visit the cathedral and admire a Byzantine relief from the 6th century and a sacristy with elaborately carved wall cupboards by Jacopo Piazetta.3rd excursion to the garden Giardini Scarpari
Although your cozy vacation rental already has an idyllic garden, a trip to the gardens of Giardini Scarpari near the city is worthwhile. Also known as the "Green Heart of Adriatic", you can relax by strolling through the park and looking out over the fresh green of the well-kept lawns, hedges and trees. Stop at the fountain in the middle of the green area and take in the tastefully designed amphorae and stone busts inside the complex. The massive stone benches under the open pergola in Roman classicist style invite you to enjoy the Italian sun with a good book or a ciabatta.4th hike along the Po Delta
The Podelta, with its beautiful natural landscape, offers you a hiking paradise worth seeing in Veneto. Explore a pristine world of lush reed meadows, promontories, shallow arms and small islands around the estuary. As an experienced bird lover or photographer, explore the fascination of the bird species living there, such as the grey and purple heron, wading bird or flamingo. From one of the observation towers you have a breathtaking panoramic view over the wild landscape of this Italian national park. A canoe or kayak trip on one of the quiet rivers is a real insider tip. From the water you can reach remote corners and experience the Podelta from a completely new perspective.5th family trip to the zoo Valcorba
Take advantage of the proximity to Adriatic's neighbouring town of Rivogo and spend some nice hours with your family in the Valcorba Zoo. The spacious zoo area offers you numerous enclosures and animal attractions as well as a playground where the little ones can let off steam to their heart's content. Stroll through the zoo on a sunny day and see black panthers, cat-like leopards, majestic lions and wild tigers - some of the most dangerous predators on the African continent. Before your animal day trip lures you back to your home apartment, enjoy a delicious Bratwurst with a large portion of French fries together with your children in the park.
