Called the “little Venice”, Comacchio is an enchanting, small lagoon town of Emilia Romagna, Italy, in the province of Ferrara, situated just north of the present mouth of the river Reno. The limpid brightness of the light reminds us that we are close to the sea here, and this light goes on to flood the town, only to be increased by the calm surfaces of the canals. Comacchio, now known as the capital of the Po Delta Park, is a little town that was born and still lives between the land and the water. The most important resources of these wetlands are the fish farming and the salt ponds. The wetlands south of the town, the Valli di Comacchio, are classified as a Site of Community Importance and a Special Protection Area in Italy. Comacchio has seven beaches, an ideal destination for spending a holiday with family or friends, or for a relaxing weekend resting in the sun or partying through the lively lido nights.
