Silvi Marina extends linearly to the Statale Adriatica road and from the area contiguous to Torre di Cerrano to the slow winding meanders of the Piomba River to the border of the province of Pescara.
The rest of the town, like the historic center, has a life of its own which isn't solely based on summer tourism thanks to its local business and industries.
This itinerary takes in Otranto, S. Cesarea Terme, Castro, Tricase and S. Maria di Leuca. Otranto is one of the many fortified cities of Salento, a region for centuries known as 'Terra d'Otranto'. The name derives from the River Idro (water) which in Latin becomes 'Hidrun-tum' as it meets the port.
The Dune Agriturismo Relais opened in the autumn of 2007 and offers a tranquil rural beach location for family holidays on the Veneto Coast near Venice.
The agriturismo is just a few meters from the beach and surrounded by coastal nature rich with Mediterranean animal and plant life including huge pine trees.
Venice is just a 30 minute drive away and a little further the art and gastronomic cities of Treviso, Portogruaro, Padova, Verona and Vicenza.
Your town of reference is Eraclea Mare just a few kilometers south from the main Veneto beach resort of Caorle, the fishing village loved byHemingway.
For those who want to stay on site a swimming pool caters for the adults while a smaller pool will keep the children happy.
Caorle is a natural port first used by the Romans to then become a refuge for the Venetians and Friulians escaping Attila the Hun.
The best way to visit the Area Marina Protetta Capo Rizzuto, or Protected Marine Area of Capo Rizzuto off the Crotone coast in Calabria, is by strapping on your scuba diving gear and dropping beneath the surface.
The second best way is to keep your clothes on and step aboard a glass bottomed boat which will take you on a guided tour.
About 42km of the sea off the coast is protected and divided into three zones. Zone C is partial reserve where only underwater sea fishing is not permitted. Zone B is the general reserve where bathing, underwater guided tours and general shipping of no more than 5 knots is allowed. Zone A is the total reserve and there are 3 such zones near Capo Colonna, Capo Cimiti and Capo Bianco.
Every sea activity is off limits, as well as diving, although guided snokelling tours to the view the submerged columns off Capo Cimiti can be requested.
