Ferrara e Comacchio
• From the most lavish city of the Renaissance, to the valleys of pink flamingos •

• Riding in Ferrara e Comacchio •

Palaces, houses, churches, squares, streets, gardens, an open-air museum. This is Ferrara, cradle city of the Renaissance and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Narrow, shady streets and irregular characteristics dating back to the medieval age, blend in harmony with airy spaces and geometric patterns typical of the Renaissance period. Today, Ferrara is an accessible city, which was able to develop a strong metropolitan character. Ferrara hosts countless festivals, artistic and cultural events that offer that international touch, rich in stimuli.
The province extends all the way to the sea, to the Ferrara Lidos, following a branch of the Po River within the Po Delta Regional Park, area considered a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. The territory reaches to Comacchio and its valleys. Once a lagoon area, today, part of the land has been reclaimed, while preserving the original aspect characterised by bridges and canals ideal for cycling in pure tranquillity.

From Mesola to Comacchio

A short, nature focused itinerary that unfolds from Mesola to the Comacchio valleys, passing through the Ferrara Lidos. A route characterised by authentic nature inspired flavours, immersed in the middle of the valleys.
We set off from the Castle of Mesola, built by Alfonso d’Este at the end of the 1500’s and after passing through the Santa Giustina Forest and Torre Abate, at km 12 we enter the “Great Mesola Forest”, a unique example of the large forests that populated the area centuries ago. After 1.5 km, we leave the dense vegetation to lose ourselves in reclaimed lands full of canals, draining plants and tree-lined streets to arrive, at km 22 of the itinerary, near the magnificent Abbey of Pomposa.
