What to see in Chioggia

With its narrow streets, bridges and canals, it's no coincidence that Chioggia is known as Little Venice. Needless to say, its historic centre is both picturesque and romantic, and just a few minutes from Sottomarina via the pathway that crosses Isola dell’Unione. The main street in Chioggia is the partly-pedestrianised Corso del Popolo, a procession of Venetian-style buildings that leads you through the town. For a tasty stop, we suggest you choose one of the many spots along the road or in the narrow nearby streets. At the end of Corso del Popolo is the Piazza Vigo, with the column of the Lion of Saint Mark; from here you can catch a boat to Venice and the islands of the Lagoon.

If you want to discover the real Chioggia, visit its fish market. Cod, sardines, cuttlefish and sea bream, lobster and shrimp; all the oily fish and shellfish of the Upper Adriatic can be found on its stalls. To see the fishermen, head for the San Domenico Canal, where fishing boats are constantly coming and going. The most charming view in Chioggia? For us, it's the Vena Canal viewed from the Vigo Bridge.
In the narrow streets and small squares in the centre, you may run into some lively discussions on a summer day. Don't worry, it's just "le baruffe chioggiotte", small theatre performances inspired by Carlo Goldoni's eponymous play. The playwright spent several years in Chioggia, living at the Palazzo Poli, on the main street.

If you want to discover the history and curiosities of Chioggia, we recommend three local museums. Firstly, the Clock Tower museum, housed in the historic Sant'Andrea bell tower, supposedly built in 1386 - some even claim that this is the oldest clock in the world. Close to the Cathedral, the Diocesan Museum, with religious art memorabilia and Chioggia history evidence, between the eighth and twentieth century. In the former Convent of San Francesco fuori le mura you can visit the Civic Museum, dedicated to archaeology and ethnography. Finally, the Palazzo Grassi, an 18th-century Venetian residence just a few steps from Corso del Popolo, is home to the "Giuseppe Olivi" Museum marine animal collection.

    “Un soggiorno a ****(*) stelle!”

    Sono stata per la prima volta a Sottomarina, pernottando all'hotel Mediterraneo con formula pensione completa. L'hotel è davvero ricercato e curato, il personale sempre cordiale e disponibile. La stanza SEA è bellissima e la vista mare è panoramica e affascinante. Il bagno è cieco ma molto spazioso e luminoso. Avete la possibilità di prendere a noleggio gratuitamente le biciclette, con le quali andare in spiaggia o nel centro di Chioggia. La piscina non è compresa nella struttura dell'hotel, ma avrete comunque la possibilità di accedere ad una vasca convenzionata. Ha soggiornato in Agosto 2016, viaggiato con gli amici
