From Lake Garda to the Adriatic Sea
By Bike
along the rivers between
Mantua and Ferrara

A tour cycle itinerary running from Veneto to Emilia Romagna, crossing Lombardy, touching Lake Garda, Mincio and Po rivers, and two Renaissance cities on the water: Mantua and Ferrara. Mantua and Ferrara, which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, were connected for a long time in past centuries because of marriages and alliances between Gonzaga and Este families; but they were also strictly connected with artistic and literary ties. Still, rivers and canals crossing their territories have always been fundamental for agriculture and communication and trades. Water actually characterizes this itinerary: Mincio in Mantua, Po in Ferrara and then the Adriatic Sea. You may easily and slowly travel by bike or by boat to better appreciate this peculiar territory.
