Around our hotel

Rovigo lives nestled in the heart of the Polesine and is caressed by the sea breeze that comes from the nearby Po Delta.

Less striking than other Venetian towns, it represents for many an artistic, cultural and environmental discovery.

The architectural testimonies present along the city streets tell of a city born as an episcopal fief that in the medieval period was enriched in monuments and palaces. Among all the Torre Donà, emblem of the city, and Torre Mozza, residues of the ancient medieval fortification, stand out.

To signal, however, the presence of the Serenissima Republic, in the city center we find the elegant Palazzo Roncale and Palazzo Roverella. This last building, now restored, is the new home of the Accademia dei Concordi art gallery, one of the most important in the Veneto region and a place for prestigious contemporary exhibitions.

Of particular interest is the Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine del Soccorso, known as the Rotonda for its octagonal plan, flanked by the Longhena bell tower. Not far away it stands The Cathedral, another religious building that preserves the architectural features of Baroque art.

For those looking for a corner of tranquility, it is possible to visit the Olivetan Monastery of San Bartolomeo, an oasis of peace for a contemplative break. Finally, to get to know Rovigo and its traditions, a visit to the Museum of the Great Rivers is a must, dedicated to the history of peasant civilization suspended between land and water, but always linked to the rhythms of the Po river and the nearby sea.

Just 19 km from the Laghetti hotel is Ferrara: an extraordinary city, where the charm and atmosphere of its glorious past have been preserved over time in harmony with the cultural liveliness of the present.

Ferrara was an important one medieval center and one of the most sumptuous courts of Renaissance.

Hence its very particular physiognomy: from the sum, harmonious and inimitable, of the intrigue of shady and irregular streets of its medieval quarters and of the airy, luminous and geometric spaces of the Renaissance age. Both are dotted with splendid palaces, houses, churches, squares, streets, gardens and works of art preserved in its countless museums, which are one of its major attractions.
Ferrara is a silent city, on a human scale, where you can stroll peacefully, on foot or by bicycle, day and night, without any fear, reliving at every step the magical atmosphere of the past.

Ferrara is also considered city ​​of art and culture among the largest in Italy, thanks in the first place to its Palazzo dei Diamanti, home to prestigious exhibitions, and the seasons of the highest quality of its Municipal Theater. Ferrara is also home to historical-re-evocative events of great appeal such as the Palio di San Giorgio, the oldest in Italy, musical events such as the Ferrara Buskers Festival and a great festival dedicated to the world of hot air balloons, the Ferrara Balloons Festival. It is also a city of the Renaissance and its Po Delta is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
