Lido di Volano
History and facts
Lido di Volano is the northernmost of the Lidi di Comacchio, and its name comes from an ancient branch of the Po River old flow. It is the closest village to the Po Delta, and therefore very interesting naturalistically.
The beaches, with their sandy shore, are the best for long walks and sunbathing. They are also protected by a large pine forest and look towards the great Po Delta and the Sacca di Goro.
This is the most unspoiled Lido and there is a modern touristic port near the bridge on the Volano small river. Its isolated location and its exposition to the winds and tidal streams enable it to be the reference center for sports such as kite and windsurfing.
Lido di Volano has a 169 hectares pine forest, which is part of a national reserve called Po di Volano. The pinewood stretches for 6 kilometers towards the south, among the residential area, the lake in Lido delle Nazioni and the sea near the place called Bocca del Bianco.
You can alternate a day at the beach and another day having a relaxing stroll in the pinewood with its flora and fauna, on foot or by bicycle.
Lido di Volano is the perfect destination for those people who like being in contact with nature, for water sports lovers and for those fond of birdwatching.
Its wide shore has modern seaside resorts and is equipped with facilities for children and for parents: the ideal place for a holiday of relaxation and leisure.
Lido di Volano is the place for those who love peace and nature, since it is completely deep in the green of a pine wood placed behind the beach.
What to visit
For those who want to enjoy the view from the top with light and ultra light weight hang-gliders, there is the air field of Valle Gaffaro, a few kilometers far from Lido di Volano.
On foot or by bicycle, starting from the port, you can penetrate into the Scannone di Volano: a strip of land a few kilometers long, covered with pine and oak trees shrubs, which offers a splendid view on the coast.
Even from the beach you can make on foot the circular path called Scannone with return to the small port.
The route is recommended in spring and autumn months.
