Discovering the Delta by bike

It is possible to go practically anywhere by bike, it is one of the best ways to experience and discover the Po Delta in total freedom.

There are numerous itineraries to follow, easy and within everyone's reach even for families with children, they are flat and fun to explore, paved areas alternate with dirt areas and are suitable for any type of bike.

But what are the most beautiful cycling routes in the Po Delta? Let's find out some of them together:

1. Via delle Valli Rosolina
The first itinerary we recommend is the one that starts from the Rosolina Mare convention center
crossing via delle Valli and then passing through the center of Rosolina and returning again to Rosolina Mare.
It is about 30 km long and is suitable for everyone, including children, as it is flat and protected from traffic. Via delle Valli is a narrow street not frequented by cars, which climbs between the banks of the fishing valleys with their characteristic "casoni", wooden houses, where fishermen go fishing or raise mussels, clams and oysters.
Along this road you can meet pink flamingos, which for some years have chosen to move to these valleys to live in all seasons.
The best time to ride among these pools of water is that of sunset, when the sun reflects its rays, creating fantastic plays of light.

2. Ecomuseum of Porto Levante
The second itinerary, on the other hand, develops under the Municipality of Porto Viro, therefore further south than Rosolina. Scheduled departure from the Osteria Botta Vecchia in Porto Viro on the Romea state road towards Porto Levante, you will cycle through the valleys and huts of Valle Bagliona and then cross the San Leonardo valley and cross Barchessa Ravagnan.
From here, turn to Cà Pisani and admire the banks of the Po branch and the immense countryside. To reach the center of Porto Viro, take the embankment cycle path, here you can admire the fossil dunes and their vegetation that has remained intact from the times when the Po had not yet created its Delta on the sea.
It is a 50 km long route suitable for everyone as the roads are flat and not dangerous.

3. Donzella Island
The third itinerary develops in a larger area, Isola della Donzella, an island created by the various arms of the Po that branch off under the municipality of Porto Tolle.
It starts from Cà Venier from where you cross the largest branch of the Po (Pila) to reach Ca 'Tiepolo, where the "center" of Porto Tolle is located. From here you can visit the most famous lavender field in the world (which in summer is photographed by everyone, but beware its flowering can only be admired from mid-June to mid-July), continue straight, towards the oasis of Ca ' Mello. The lavender field is W O N D E R FU L: a purple, fragrant spot in the midst of the gold of the wheat, with a concert of insects to keep company.
Continuing to Santa Giulia you can admire an experimental, organic and natural field of sunflowers, in which huge and beautiful flowers have grown.
Finding it is very simple: from the Gnocca embankment road, turn left towards the Casella pine forest and then left again, in via Nazario Sauro, in the middle of the green fields towards Ca 'Mello.
Take a dirt road and follow the yellow spot that can be seen on the horizon: it is not the sun, but the organic sunflowers.
It is a 55 km long route within everyone's reach.

4. Sacca di Scardovari
Another area to discover by bike is the Sacca degli Scardovari, also under the Municipality of Porto Tolle, famous for its fishermen's balances, many also sell their catch on the spot. Since 2021, the famous pink Delta oyster has been produced here, a real delight.
Departure from Piazza Ciceruacchio in Cà Tiepolo, where the municipal office of Porto Tolle is located, continue to the Oasis of Cà Mello and then reach the southernmost point and stop at the Spiaggia delle Conchiglie.
Then go up along Via Strada del Mare passing through Bonelli, Scardovari, Cà Dolfin, Tolle and then return to Cà Tiepolo.
It is a 40 km long route suitable for everyone.
