TOUR DESCRIPTION
Year after year, the excavations in our area bring to light evidence from the past, increasing the archaeological heritage and the knowledge of local history. This excursion is aimed at increasing the knowledge of history by leveraging the information provided by museums and archaeological evidence.
The tour starts with a scenic walk in Adria, the ancient town that gave its name to the Adriatic Sea, and one of the most important and renowned centres in the Po valley. Next, we will visit the National Archaeological Museum, which is a must-see if you want to fully understand the history and activity of Adria and its surroundings from Protohistory up to the late Roman age. Completely renovated and expanded, this museum houses finds discovered in local excavations, emphasising the multi-ethnic structure of this ancient seaport, where Etruscans, Greeks and Paleovenetians have been living together in the name of commerce up to the Roman conquest.
The tour will continue in Loreo, where we will take a walk in the calli (narrow Venetian streets) of the town centre and along the banks of the Naviglio di Loreo. Finally, we will visit the charming Antiquarium, among ancient history, old crafts, traditions and folklore.
