Riserva Naturale Integrale di Bosco Nordio
A small natural jewel nestled in the Venetian lagoon. A millennial forest that allows us to see what forests must have looked like in ancient times.
Bosco Nordio (Nordio Forest) is a beautiful nature reserve of remarkable historical and scientific interest that has remained virtually untouched since its formation. In Roman times, the dunes on which it stood were part of a sandspit that continued from the one currently surrounding the Venetian lagoon to the east, and crossed the Adige River all the way to Ravenna.
During the Middle Ages, as in Roman times, the sea bordered the present forested dunes of the sandspit. It is a wild forest of holm oaks, laurels and pines. Riserva Integrale Naturale Bosco Nordio is a small natural jewel nestled in the Venetian lagoon. A millennial forest that allows us to see what forests must have looked like in ancient times. When you enter the Preserve you are immediately carried far away, into a rich, vibrant and welcoming nature.
The magic you experience while walking in Bosco Nordio is also made possible by the people who look after the reserve every day and who, thanks to their passion, have made this corner of nature a second home for anyone visiting the area. The conservation efforts at Riserva Naturale Integrale di Bosco Nordio, started by Veneto Agricoltura in 2000, have restored the area to its natural conditions through floral recomposition, land restoration and site protection.
This forest is part of Associazione Forestale di Pianura (Lowland Forest Association).
