Departure from Chioggia

Chioggia (a little fisherman village in the south of the Venice lagoon) has traditionally been the first base in Italy. Its central location in relation to the Padano/Veneto waterway makes this picturesque "water" city an ideal harbour and departure point for the best routes all year long. The base is located in a strategic and panoramic point at equal distance between Chioggia (downtown, 300m) and Sottomarina (sea-side resort, 500m).

Chioggia, a fishing capital and the European centre for horticultural production, has the appearance of a charming sailor town while being the second largest city after Venice in the lagoon. It is a delight to discover the fresh fish market in this city of Roman origins. Its architectural treasures invite you to take an exciting tour through the town: the cathedral, its domes and bells, the Refugium Peccatorum with the scared image of Madoona, churhces, Palace Poli, bridges, the 'pescheria' (fish shop - visit obligatory), the small Vigo place and its column of 1786 etc. This stunning city is quiet and yet at the same time full of life and is set in a beautiful natural setting.
