  • Departure: Pozzolo
  • Arrival: Rivalta sul Mincio

At the foot of the hills, the Mincio River, freed from modern embankments, regains its most natural and distinctive features.
This is the environment that Virgil described, where the river flows placidly, tracing wide meanders on a plain where fields and meadows alternate. Here, beyond the riversides shadowed by trees and shrubs, the Mincio splits into several branches, forming vegetation-covered islets.
This is where the river was intersected by the Via Postumia, the main Roman road running through Cisalpine Gaul, serving as military communication line and vehicle of Romanization.
