The route runs between small villages and long stretches of channels, rivers and lagoon areas of great beauty. There are two obligatory stops: the naturalistic oasis of Ca’ di Mezzo which is a phytodepuration laboratory of international interest with paths and ponds with a viewing point of the fauna that populates the oasis. The second is the Millecampi valley, which offers an extraordinary glimpse of the characteristic lagoon landscape that can also be seen along the way. After booking, you can visit the Idrovora di Santa Margherita to know all the historical work of the Veneto reclamation, but also the constant activity of controlling the water level to avoid flooding and flooding.
