Along the great river

Along the great river

This itinerary is suitable for experienced cyclists and takes in part of the walls of Ferrara designed at the time of the Este family   over a period of 150 years from the 15th century onwards. After having admired the famous defence system of the town we pass through the heart of the Renaissance town, stopping at the famous Diamond Palace with its unusual façade. Crossing through the green landscape of the Parco Massari with its majestic Lebanese Cedar trees we continue through the countryside, going through the “giardino delle Capinere” and then crossing through the urban park dedicated to Giorgio Bassani. From here it is possible to reach the right bank of the river Po offering the visitor beautiful views of the river. The tour returns to Ferrara for the dropping off of the bikes.
