What you'll do

Meet-up at the Saline Conti Vecchi where we will visit a site of industrial archaeology, within a still-operational plant. Our staff will introduce you to the historical buildings through a guided tour: the workshop, the chemical lab, the main office and the archive. You will discover the history of the salt workers that used to live and work here in the 30s. You will be brought back to life through imaginative backdrops, historical documents, and immersive video screening. The visit will continue with a tour in the saltworks by a little train. This is where our journey of discovery begins, where the white gold industry lives alongside thousands of flamingos, in a true natural oasis. During the tour in the saltworks you will have the opportunity to ask questions, take pictures and discover all the birds and plants thanks to the help of one of us. The guided tour in English or Italian of the historical buildings is in small groups. The train tour is with other guests and can be both in Italian and English. It depends of the number of guests. The Saline can be reached only by car. We offer the opportunity to reserve a transfer in case.
