3. Biking in the great delta: from Venice to Ferrara

...unforgettably fascinating - along with the Venice lagoon it is the tourist destination par excellence. This journey takes Venice's public transport network as far as Chioggia, crosses the rivers Brenta and Adige, and unwinds southwards through the landscape created by the River Po in its slow progress towards the Adriatic, which gave life to one of the broadest wetland zones of the European Mediterranean: The Po Delta, an ideal roaming ground for the naturalist, the environmentalist and the gourmet. It arrives in Ferrara along the 'Destra Po' route. Two cities, both friends and enemies, joined by culture and centuries of history in which wars alternated with periods of warm friendship when the dukes of Ferrara were welcomed in San Marco in honour and brotherhood.
