Chioggia is a little Venetian port with stunning architecture nestling at the southern end of the Venetian Lagoon. In contrast to Venice it is uncrowded and offers traditional markets and shops. Chioggia occupies several islands and is joined by a bridge to the mainland at the seaside resort of Sottomarina. With ancient origins dating back over 2000 years to Roman, Etruscan and Byzantine links, it was destroyed by invading barbarians, rebuilt and the was centre of many disputes between Genoa and Venice.
It has many notable landmarks including the 11th-century cathedral with works by Tiepolo, Giovane, Piazzetta and Diziani, the Church of San Martino (1392), the Piazzatta Vigo, Vigo bridge and 12th century Vigo column. At the Chiesa di San Domenico (14th century, renovated 18th century), set on its own island, you can see Carpaccio's St Paul, his last recorded painting together with works of art by Tintoretto and Bassano. From here you can also visit the ancient city of Padua.
