From Bologna to Ferrara by bike (along the waterways)

An itinerary to discover two of the most beautiful and bike-friendly cities of Emilia Romagna, following the old trade routes running along the waterline network of the region. A unique experience, suitable for all.

A secret path along small back roads linking Bologna to Ferrara gives us the opportunity to discover this territory from a different perspective, following the old waterways which linked these two cities to the thick network of transport routes, spreading not only trade relations and goods, but also culture and knowledge. Along the way, we will cross small town centres, wide farm estates and old rice fields now converted into biodiversity conservation areas.
