    History and nature
    Starting from Argenta town centre, and after visiting the Museo Civico, in one kilometre you will reach the exquisite parish church of San Giorgio. A visit to the Museum of the Reclamation (further north) is however a must to understand how this land has transformed. Going south it is possible to stop at the birdwatching shed on the riverbank of Cassa Campotto. Further on, you will reach the Museum of Valli di Argenta.

    Water, sky and bike
    From the ancient parish church of S. Giorgio to Casino di Campotto and the Museum of Valli di Argenta: the suggested bike itinerary follows the embankment of Cassa Bassarone and the Campotto detention basin. Approximately 6 km to enjoy the entire valley dotted with water lilies, reed beds and bulrushes. The Museum of Valli di Argenta is the point of departure of a 10-km guided itinerary to admire the landscape.

    Shades of green
    Leave your car at the parking lot by Vallesanta, where you can rent a bike. On Thursdays, holidays and on the days before a holiday you can circle by bike the entire valley (around 9 km), admiring its typical wet meadow. On weekdays the trail is on 5 km.
