In this chapter we discuss a spectacular route of the Po Delta Regional Park, the Cycle Route of Sacca degli Scardovari.

The Cycle Route of Sacca degli Scardovari is a very fascinating itinerary, as it allows you to admire naturalistic places, typical fishermen's houses and infinite sunsets. Its mighty banks, often higher than the houses, direct the long streams to the sea, brightening the landscape with a pleasant sea breeze.

The Cycle Route of Sacca degli Scardovari

We move within the Po Delta Regional Park, the largest wetland in Europe and the Mediterranean, with around 700 sq km of land and water, which is still evolving today, thanks to the contribution of sediments from the Po River at the sea.

The Cycle Route of Sacca degli Scardovari

At the mouth, where fresh and salty waters are mixed, there is the fall of silts, clays and sands which, depositing, emerge forming the benches, that is new coastlines. The Sacca degli Scardovari cycle path can be divided into two stages:

The first stage begins at the fishing town of Scardovari and, pedaling in the company of Gabbiani and Beccacce, you descend towards Borgo Bonelli, (a typical village with single-storey houses and a nut fireplace), until you reach the beaches of Barricata, a very popular place in summer. Then go up keeping the Sacca degli Scardovari on the left and, always pedaling in good company with the Sterni Comuni and the Woodcocks, you reach the wonderful Ca' Mello Oasis.

Here it is possible to pay a visit to the natural oasis, a truly unique habitat, where the reeds grow spontaneously and the animals stop to reproduce. At this point it is possible to return to the locality of Scardovari or continue with the second stage.

The second stage, in fact, continues along the Belvedere Sacca road, always alongside, obviously, the spectacular Sacca degli Scardovari. Once at the bottom you go up towards the branch of the river Po della Donzella, passing through the pretty village of Santa Giulia and continuing up to Cassella.

Here you turn right, returning near the Ca’ Mello Oasis, and then continue to the starting point, the fishing town of Scardovari. In the summer the air is full of marine scents, the green of the rice fields alternates with the golden yellow of ripe wheat, thus offering a very pleasant ride. We recommend a calm pace to enjoy the wonderful landscape that will surround you.
