17. Rovigo – Polesella

Short and easy stage; cross the Polesine. To admire the reclamation works, the large cultivated spaces, the wetlands with their vegetation and birdlife.

In Rovigo we start from the Cathedral. The route goes towards the Adigetto, and you have to cross the canal and to walk along the right bank. Taking the bridge you take the left bank of the canal. Go under the ring road and continue as far as San Sisto, in front of a chapel. Further on, cross the Adigetto and change embankments which you leave by taking Via Argine Destro Adigetto as far as Via della Conciliazione, where you continue, also crossing the SP 4 (pay attention to traffic). You cross a canal on an old brick bridge, then you reach Sant’Apollinare, a village with a beautiful church and refreshment facilities. This leads to the bridge that crosses the Canal Bianco. Following the Po Valley-Polesano collector, you come to Borgo where you can take advantage of a cycle path. You go in line crossing Pontecchio Polesine up to Guarda Veneta, just below the left bank of the Po. Climbing the steps, going up the river, there is Polesella, where it is possible to find refreshments and overnight stays.
