When we arrive in Polesine for the first time, we cannot help but being surprised by the presence of a dense network of canals that crisscross its territory. They are hidden between high embankments that interrupt the gaze on the infinite spaces of the low crops of wheat, rice and rapeseed.

Containing this narrow strip of land from the characteristic shape of a fish with its gaze turned towards the sea, are the two major Italian rivers: the Po and the Adige.

Today, we can find streets where once water was flowing. Their sinuous paths are raised above the countryside and the inhabited centres, as they serve to remind us of the ancient passage of the rivers.

The wonderful natural environment is intimately connected with the cultural wealth that tourists can find in the cities, the small villages, the architecture of the villas, buildings and churches, the museums as well as local traditions and gastronomy.
