One of the best-known monuments in Rovigo is the pair of leaning towers, "Torre Donà" and "Torre Mozza", of which the former is one of the highest in Italy. No less famous is the Column with the Lion of St Mark (Colonna con il Leone di San Marco), a symbol of Venetian domination.
In addition, visitors to Rovigo should not miss the Palazzo dell'Accademia dei Concordi (1 km) that houses two libraries and an art gallery containing noted works. The gallery has masterpieces by Piazzetta, Giambellino, and Tiepolo, to give just a few examples.
And at least a day trip is warranted to Adria, the ancient town after which the Adriatic Sea is named.
