It’s an unforgettable motorhome holiday along the terminal part of great Po River and the branches of its Delta :it’s a tour in an area in which nature and man work together, giving us endless resources such as energy, agriculture , cattle- breeding, fish farming and turism, in the care and respect of the environment, where culture and history combine to past.
We will see its features, we will visit its towns and historical sites, its main hydraulic works, its famous route of Occhiobello of 1951 and its floodplains ; we’ll cross  the River on bridges made by barges and we’ll sail along the benches and the island of Scano Boa, we’ll arrive to sea and visit the Botanic Garden of Marina di Caleri.
