Ferrara - Ostellato - Ferrara

 

For the first part of the route please consult Ferrara - Ostellato itinerary. Once in Ostellato, head towards Migliarino: overlooking the Po di Volano, it houses the Documentation Centre of the Harness Racing Museum, with memorabilia related to the world of horseracing and a wealth of documentation concerning national harness racing from 1876 to the present. Following the river, we reach the Basin of Valpagliaro, whose lock gates allow overcoming a 'water drop' of over three metres, and from there to Villa Mensa in Sabbioncello San Vittore. Our companion along the path is the Po of Volano, which we follow upstream, crossing the countryside of Ferrara, poplar plantations, farms and villas of the countryside right up to the heart of Ferrara, the Este Castle, surrounded by its own moat. A possible detour can be made to visit the ‘900 town of Tresigallo, just a few kilometres from Final di Rero.
