La Dolce Vita on the deck of your houseboat in Marano

The town of Mara­no is sit­u­at­ed at the cen­tre of the Gra­do and Mara­no lagoon. There are only two bridges con­nect­ing it with the con­ti­nent, giv­ing you a real chance to get away from it all. This port is famous for Ital­ian water­way cruis­es. After being trained and giv­en advice on how to han­dle your licence-free rental boat, you’ll be able to set off on one of the many canals towards sites such as the impos­ing Po Val­ley. Before sam­pling the joys of water­way cruis­ing, you can take advan­tage of the many bathing resorts on the lagoon, relax­ing and enjoy­ing a swim or one of the many water activ­i­ties on offer.

A cruise to satisfy the desires of your whole crew

The region’s warm, sooth­ing cli­mate will make your cruise even more enjoy­able, and the deck of you licence-free boat will be a dream set­ting to embrace La Dolce Vita. Going through the region’s many locks and move­able bridges will liv­en up your day-to-day life on board – don’t miss the chance to enjoy a spot of fish­ing or the promise of dis­cov­er­ing some authen­tic delights on a walk or off-road cycle ride. Nav­i­gate the var­i­ous branch­es of the Po towards cities like Fer­rara, the his­toric heart of which is on the UNESCO World Her­itage list. San Gior­gio Cathe­dral is a must-see attrac­tion. Oppo­site this impos­ing build­ing is anoth­er key site : Palaz­zo del­la Ragione, a goth­ic edi­fice that’s the only one of its kind in the region.
