The ancient Romans named the territory “Corrigium”, which means ‘a strip of emerged land’. That gave origin to the name Correzzola.
After the collapse of the Roman Empire, the territory was abandoned and remained in that condition until the arrival, in the Middle Ages, of the Benedictine monks from Santa Giustina’s Monastery of Padua. They started a huge and patient work of land reclamation in order to transform this territory in healthy and fertile grounds.
Due to its closeness to places of unique naturalistic interest like the “Delta del Po” natural park, the “Colli Euganei” park, Venice lagoon and the coast of Veneto, Correzzola can be considered the perfect starting point for many different excursions.
Bicycle or horse itineraries are organized for those people who love nature and want to visit the Correzzola countryside with its Benedictine Courts or the near lagoon.
Daily trips can be arranged not only in the main art cities as Venice, Padua, Vicenza, but also in the smaller ones like Chioggia, Este, Monselice, Montagnana and Arquà Petrarca, located in the surroundings.
