The 10 bicycle routes offer a journey across an enchanted territory, where the charm of unspoilt nature merges with small villages and towns, some better known than others, but all thriving with history, culture and tradition. Water has always taken a leading part in the history of Ferrara, both friend and enemy of the people who have lived for thousands of years in close contact with the sea, rivers and marshes. Constantly in dispute with water, and with the progressive advancement of the coastlines or with obstinate reclamation work, land has been transformed into fields, intersected by ditches, rivers and canals. Land and water are the two fundamental elements from which the territory of Ferrara draws its identity, giving life to a landscape that is both unique and evocative.
