An important fishing port on the north-eastern border of the vast protected area of the Po Delta Regional Park.


Why visit it

The place name Goro derives from "Gaurus", an old tributary of the river Po branching off the river Volano. The history of Goro is characterised by Man's continuous struggle against both the sea and the river. Evidence of this can be seen in the ancient hydraulic regulation structures, such as Torre Palù, Torre Abate, Balanzetta and the Agrifoglio drainage canal, as well as in the lighthouses, which show how the area is constantly changing. 


When to go and what to see

An important fishing port on the north-east border of the vast protected area of the Po Delta Regional Park.

A number of boats leave from here in search of the Po Delta’s natural environment, along the river and down to the sea, past islands, sand-banks and reed beds.

An excellent place for bird-watching.


Do not miss

The Sacca di Goro, a large lagoon enclosed between the Po di Goro and the Po di Volano rivers, is an area known for the production of shellfish, in particular clams, which find their ideal habitat in these sandy bottoms, on average 60-70 cm deep with a maximum of 2 m, to grow and develop. The fauna includes numerous species of both breeding and migratory water birds; fish fauna, in addition to farmed mussels, consists of oysters, mullets, eels, sea bream and sea bass. 

The area bordering the sea is delineated by a long strip of sand locally called Scannone di Gorobetter known as “Love Island”. It is a very recent strip of land that emerged as a consequence of the advancement of the Po river and is a refuge for numerous birds. On the outermost part of the Scannone di Goro, on an isolated strip of sand called the Scanno del Faro, stands the Faro di Goro Lighthouse
