The Eastern ring

The Eastern ring

This itinerary includes a large part of the province to the east of Ferrara, connecting with large spirals the two towns: Ferrara, included in the UNESCO World Heritage, which experienced its period of greatest splendour during the Renaissance, and Comacchio, a lagoon city, with its monuments from the Baroque era and its nearby seaside resorts. To the north we run alongside the Great River Po in the most beautiful stretch of its race, the one towards its mouth: the placid waters reach the sea and you can follow through the lush countryside. Poised between unique landscapes and a rich ecosystem, this is a ride balanced on the delicate boundary between land and water, through continuous vegetation and birdlife varieties. Cycling towards the south, the large stretches of water of the lagoons counterbalance the woodlands and fields of wheat and rapeseed, until the return, passing and jumping from "Delizia" to "Delizia" and from Oasis to Oasis, to the beautiful city of Este, with its Walls, the cathedral, the monasteries and its beautiful Castle, the Diamanti and Schifanoia Palaces.
