For People with Special Needs

Although the conformation of the Park territory is varied, its most salient feature is represented by water, be it in the shape of river, sea, marshes or salt basins. Thanks to its particular geomorphological features, the Park territory lends itself better than others to visits by people with special needs. What might seem a limit can in fact provide different "points of view", which can give us a new "reading" of nature.

Station itineraries

Welcome to Delta del Po!
Natura is at home here: a land rich in water and emotions, kingdom of birds, a treasure of biodiversity.
Emilia-Romagna's Delta del Po: 54,000 hectares that preserve the history - ancient and modern - of the Po River in centuries-old woods, ancient pinewoods, saltworks, flooded forests, brackish or freshwater valleys and lagoons that represent Italy's largest wetland area.
Delta del Po, one of Italy's most beautiful areas, is therefore the ideal destination to enjoy Nature throughout the year, to visit new and unusual landscapes, to spend pleasant days and taste genuine food.

Enjoy your stay at Delta del Po!

Boat and bike itineraries in the Po Delta: sailing and cycling in a UNESCO site

Stop the engine and put yourself in "slow" mode! Above all, do not waste the opportunity to try a new experience: if you have never done it, pedal quietly on the flat banks or let yourself be lulled by a boat excursion; and if you have never tried it, learn to fish clams! The suggested itineraries, which regard the northern area of the Po Delta Park between Volano, Mesola and Goro, are always accessible and take place along cycle paths, by boats or on roads connecting the points of interest. Each itinerary could last a few hours or a whole day; for proposals that include navigation, it is recommended to book in advance.
To extend the exploration to the Park in the central area of Comacchio and south to Cervia, just draw on the information on the official website of the Park (www.parcodeltapo.it)
