Comacchio

3.7
Comacchio is a town and comune of Emilia Romagna, Italy, in the province of Ferrara, 48km from the provincial capital Ferrara.Geographythumb Comacchio is situated in a lagoon just north of the present mouth of the Reno. It is built on more than thirteen different islets, joined by bridges. The most important resources of these wetlands are the fish farming and the salt ponds. The seaport of Porto Garibaldi lies 7km to the east. 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. They are also rated internationally important by the Ramsar Convention for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands.HistoryAfter its early occupation by the Etruscans and the Gauls, when the site lay on the main stream of the River Po, Comacchio was annexed by Rome. Under Emperor Augustus, who ruled Rome from 27 BCE to 14 CE, a canal was dug to deepen its lagoon. Part of the original wetlands were drained and divided among villae rusticae.
Comacchio is in Province of Ferrara. In the build up to your vacation in Comacchio, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Italy online visit planner .
