The seafront of Sottomarina is a very popular choice with families who want to experience a true beach vacation with their children, on beaches that offer a variety of opportunities to have fun, and utmost safety along the entire coastline.
In the immediate surroundings, less than ten minutes away by car, Chioggia is an ancient maritime city. Here history is everywhere, in the Canal Vena where the ‘bragozzi’ – typical fishing boats with their colorful sails – are docked, as well as in the churches, and the old taverns offering a tasty and delicious fish based cuisine.
The Hotel Europeo is also an excellent starting point for visiting nearby Venice, Padua, Rovigo and the Venetian villas along the Riviera del Brenta.

Sottomarina is a popular seaside resort, renowned for its very fine sandy beach, which is rich in minerals – such as augite, quartz and silicate – facilitating the action of the sun’s rays and providing a beautiful sun tan.
In addition, the locality enjoys a pleasant ventilation from the prevailing breezes and the air is rich in iodine, which together with the quality of its sand is ideal for helio/psammo therapies.
