Located in the inland of Ravenna, not far from the city centre, Sant’Alberto is a little town on the outskirts of the Marshes of Comacchio, perfectly embedded in the unblemished nature of the Po Delta Park

It’s a suggestive area to visit, mainly for its typical flora and fauna.

Don't miss

The main attraction in Sant'Alberto is the Palazzone, built by the Estensi family in the first half of the 16th century as a military post. Today, it hosts the NatuRA Museum, a museum dedicated to natural sciences, dedicated to the memory of Alfredo Brandolini, a naturalist from Ravenna at the beginning of the 20th century.
The museum displays the valuable ornithological collection donated by Brandolini himself and other artifacts donated over the years.

The museum is also a visitor centre of the Po Delta Park organising excursions on foot, by bike or on an electric boat, to discover the Lagoons of Comacchio, including the extraordinary Oasis of Boscoforte, populated by wild Camargue horses and overflown by flocks of flamingos.

Just outside Sant’Alberto, in Mandriole (heading towards Casalborsetti), the Fattoria Guiccioli is worth a visit, linked to the Italian Risorgimento and the death of Anita Garibaldi.

In the surroundings

Gateway to the Po Delta Park, Sant’Alberto sits between green lands and vast valleys, only 27 km from the historical town of Comacchio.

The two towns are divided by the wide natural area of the Marshes of Comacchio, a natural site of extreme interest, declared a wetland of international community importance, and a special protected area for bird conservation.

Just 10 km away are the shores of the northern beach towns of Ravenna (Casalborsetti, Marina Romea and Porto Corsini), and not much further the Unesco city of Ravenna.
