Seaside resort in the province of Ferrara. One of the seven Lidos of Comacchio
The very picture of the modern holiday centre, the feeling here is the High Life: Lido degli Estensi is the Lido for having fun, the young people's beach, with its shopping streets glittering with boutiques.
Its beach stations - modern, buzzing and always bang up to date with activities and fashions - preside over long beaches of fine sand where you can stretch out lazily in front of a calm sea with a gentle slope.
It is also ideal fun, then, for children who can play and swim in tranquillity, and for families; but it's especially thrilling for the young people who will find on their doorstep discotheques and numerous opportunities for sport and diversion.
There's Beach Tennis, Beach Volleyball and many other beach games, and as the evening falls, you will hear the music that accompanies dancing lessons and aerobics.
After relaxing and having fun on the beaches, you can move into Viale Carducci, the most important street for shopping, with its arches, obelisks, gazebos, in neoclassical style. The street is also full of nightclubs and shops.
The Po Delta Park envelops Comacchio with its woods and lagoons: just outside the town are the Comacchio Lagoons themselves, which can be visited by bike or boat; to the north, Valle Bertuzzi (10 km) offers splendid landscapes at dusk, while the woodlands at Mesola and Santa Giustina (20 km) are ideal for a cool evening walk among the green leaves after a day on the beach.
Don't miss a visit to Comacchio, the "little Venice", an enchanting lagoon town: it's neat and unfeigned, endowed with a vitality that comes from a strong respect for its own history and for the environment that surrounds it.
