The Marano Lagoon, contained between the last coastal point of Lignano Sabbiadoro and the Grado Lagoon, is a landscape of extraordinary beauty that hosts unique fauna and flora of significant naturalistic importance. Protected from the open sea by a series of islands and islets, like Sant'Andrea, also known as Isola delle Conchiglie, it is characterised by swampy vegetation and the unique fishermen's lodgings, the typical "casoni", built with cane and wood, that make Marano Lagoon one of the most interesting places in the Upper Adriatic Sea.

The nature reserves
There are two nature reserves in the Marano Lagoon:
the Riserva delle Foci del Fiume Stella (Reserve of the Mouths of the Stella River) that takes in the entire delta of the river, and can only be visited by boat, and the Riserva della Valle Canal Novo (Canal Novo Valley Reserve) that covers an ex-fishing of around thirty-five hectares

Discover the lagoon by boat
You can choose among different boat trips on the lagoon, with motorships that will allow you to observe the unspoiled nature in these places. Before leaving you should visit the old city centre of Marano Lagunare with its thousand year old tower, and a labyrinth of alleys and small squares that bear testimony to the Venice's Republic domination that governed this area from the 15th century until the end of the 18th century.
