walking distance

by esoroczy

We are planing a trip to Rovigo and intend to Teatro Sociale. We would like to know if the Best Western
Hotel Cristallo is within walking distance.

Thank You

Re: walking distance

NOTE: I have not been to Rovigo, so take what I say with a grain of salt, maybe big kosher salt ;-)

Using www.viamichelin.com as mapping software, the distance from the hotel (Viale Porta Adige, 1) to the Teatro (Piazza Garibaldi) is one kilometer (0.6 miles) on foot (note the "pedestrian" option at viamichelin.com).

So, for most people, it's certainly walkable...unless you're dressed to the nines and don't want to schlep around town in your high heels ;-)...in which case, I am sure the hotel can scare up a taxi (the hotel appears quite close to the train station, where there is a permanent taxi stand)...

Travel Tips for Rovigo

History of Rovigo

by grayfo

The town was founded by the Romans but may have had its origins going back as far as the 6th century BC. First mentioned as Rodigo in a document from Ravenna in 838 the town was ruled by the house of Este until it passed to Venice in 1482 and then to Austria in 1797. Rovigo was annexed to Italy in 1866.

Giovanni Miani, an unknown major explorer

by Mikebond

When you come to Rovigo, try asking anyone: "Tell me something about Giovanni Miani, please". You will likely get no answer. Personally, before thinking of writing this tip, I just knew he was a famous son of Rovigo who explored some part of Africa, but nothing more. And I guess most of my fellow-citizens don't even know that. So, here is some news I've found on Wikipedia: Giovanni Miani was born in Rovigo on 17 March 1810 and died in Africa in November 1872.
Before starting exploring the Dark Continent, he was an opera singer, a pedagogue and a scholar. He took part in the 1849 Risorgimento risings, after which he was exiled and lived in several cities, such as Athens and Izmir.
His exploring trips began from Egypt in 1859. He went in search of Nile's spring as far as Uganda, and drew a map of the river for the French Geographic Society.
In 1871 he began his second and most important trip from Khartoum along Kazal river. He died in Nangazizi, Zaire in 1872, but the news arrived in Italia only one year later.

So, he had quite an adventurous life, didn't he? However, he is only commemorated with a marble statue made by Virgilio Milani in 1935 and located under some trees in Largo Libertà, at the end of via Don Minzoni and the beginning of via Miani. The inscription is not even evident (see second pic of this tip). It's a pity that a town doesn't honour one of its greatest citizens in a better way...

Asilo "Principe di Napoli"

by Mikebond

The Prince of Naples crèche (or "maternal school" as we call them in Italy) is the oldest crèche in Rovigo. It was already there when my grandfather was young, so it has quite a long history.
I think this is a beautiful location for a school, since it lies in a quiet street and has some trees too, as you can see.

Ancient chemist's shop - now Tourist Office!

by Mikebond

The building of the Antica Farmacia alle Tre Colombine ("Ancient Chemist's shop at the Three Little Doves") is located close to the Accademia dei Concordi. Although it is not a tourist attraction, it is interesting for being the most ancient chemist's shop in Rovigo. It has a beautiful decoration with three doves on the top.
The chemist's shop has now moved away and the building has become the new seat of the Tourist Office.

Chiesa di Sant'Agostino

by Mikebond

Also known as Chiesa del Seminario Vecchio, this church dates of the 16th century. It belonged to a monastery which was destroyed in 1772 to be replaced by the seminary. The church has a simple, harmonic style. It lies near the Porta Sant'Agostino (see the Things to do section).
