HISTORY

The origins of this little town are very old and date back to the Bronze Age.

With the Romans Caorle became very important, but the ancient history of the town is not completely clear yet and historians are keeping on studying it.

With the fall of the Roman Empire Caorle became very important and contributed to the foundation and enrichment of Venice.

In 876 it was raised to the status of diocese and, in the following centuries, the town developed and so it could provide crafts to the Venetian fleet. The town’s decay occurred with the fall of the Serenissima Republic.

Only after 800, the Habsburg domination and the two world wars, Caorle began to flourish again, thanks to its touristic activity that gave it a new growth and wealth.
During the Venetian domination, Verona cultivated the intellectual and cultural aspects and became a fixed destination for thinkers and artists as Goethe, Heine, Stendhal and Valery, in a period of peace that lasted until 1797.

Finally, in October 1866, the population of Verona chose to join the Kingdom of Italy and followed the events of their own country.
