Cycling

Due to the flat terrain, cycling is particularly popular here and a network of paths, many of them on raised dykes, offer day trips and long-distance excursions. Of note is the 46km route linking the freshwater lagoons of Argenta to their saltwater equivalents in Comacchio. You can lengthen this excursion at both ends, heading west from Argenta to Ferrara (41km), or north from Comacchio alongside the Adriatic and the bird-filled Valle Bertazzi to Mesola. Pick up bike maps at the tourist office in Comacchio.
