Adria

In this chapter we are dealing with a city closely linked to its watercourse and its millennial trade: we are talking about Adria.

Adria

Its name gave origin to that of the Adriatic Sea, where the town is now connected through the picturesque Canal Bianco. Adria was a large port as early as the 6th century B.C. and point of contact for trade with the Etruscans and Greeks, thereby becoming one of the most important ports of the Adriatic.

By visiting it you will find yourself in front of a typically Venetian scenario, thanks to the alleys, the stately buildings and the charming Canal Bianco. The “Church of Santa Maria Assunta della Tomba” is worth-seeing with its baptismal font that dates back to the VIII century and the “New Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul” which preserves a Byzantine bas-relief.
