Po, Ferrara and Mantua
An itinerary made for nature and relax lovers, rich in fauna and flora: waterways have little infrastructure.
At first glance the navigation can seem a little bit boring, but once you arrive into the Mincio river, in Mantua and its lakes you will understand it was totally worth it. In the Po River the loneliness will indeed disappear. The "great river" gives many chances to moor. You will meet fishing lovers along the river, always ready to enjoy good time together. Bikes are recommended to reach small villages, shops, restaurants and trattorias.
