The Valli di Comacchio - Po Delta Park
Comacchio Lagoons history and nature trail
Although land reclamation has reduced their size, the marshes are still one of the largest lagoon systems in Italy.
They cover an area of more than 11,000 hectares between Comacchio and the river Reno and are connected to the sea via canals.
They form an environment of rare beauty within the Po Delta Park: in some places the stretches of brackish water are interrupted by rises in the land or divided by embankments and ancient sandbars, in others they extend freely like mirrors reflecting the ever-changing light of the sky.
The undisputed domain of rich birdlife, both sedentary and migratory, they offer a privileged setting for walks along the banks, excursions by boat and birdwatching.
The trip is made by boat and includes a stop at the old ‘casoni’ (fishing huts) restored and transformed into authentic displays where you will find in situ the furnishings and tools of the fisherman.
