Travel guide Rovigo


Place of Interest
Adria Main square


Historic port city inland

The town of Adria has a very special history. Located 20 kilometres east of Rovigo, the small town was once situated directly by the sea! 2500 years ago Etruscan and Greek merchants lived here and turned the small farming village Hatria (later Adria) into the most important trading port in the whole region. The dominance of the ancient port is still evident today and can still be seen in the name of a whole section of the sea – the Adriatic. Because of the increasing deposits of the Po, the city gradually lost its connection to the sea and thus its importance. Adria is now located some 25 kilometres from the sea which bears its name and can only look back on a great history from a time long ago.

The city itself does not have too many attractions to offer. The old town is worth a stroll along the Canale Bianco. Also worth seeing are the large brick church of Santa Maria Assunta with its freestanding bell tower and the Archaeological Museum, which houses many of the Etruscan, Greek and Roman exhibits.
