A 35-km itinerary along the Lamone river, a water trail that will make you discover a uniquely beautiful territory.

The flourishing plain, reclaimed valleys, brackish lagoons, the century-old Pine forest of San Vitale, the flooded forest of Punte Alberete – populated by important species of aquatic birds – up until the suggestive coastal dune by the mouth of the river.

The walking and cycling path along the Lamone river is an itinerary immersed in a unique landscape characterised by history, culture and nature.

You will find water, both the fresh and precious one of the river and the salt water of the Adriatic Sea; and then the land, with its flourishing plain, cultivated fields, reclaimed valleys, brackish lagoons, rural buildings, pine forests and fishing cabins.

An open-air museum with many interesting historical and cultural sites, such as Palazzo San Giacomo in Russi and the Eco-museum of Marshland Civilization in Villanova di Bagnacavallo.

This itinerary is a tribute to the territory and an invitation to discover the richness that lies in it. Don’t miss an exciting journey between past and present, through a unique environment made of history, culture and nature.
