The Po Delta Park in Emilia-Romagna, more than 128,494 acres among the provinces of Ferrara and Ravenna, is one of the most important wetlands in Europe with ecological and landscape features including the languid atmosphere that makes it one of a kind.
In the Emilia Romagna Apennines, everyone has a good time. In the winter, the 15 ski resorts offer 300 km of slopes. In the summer, the activities are endless: excursions on two wheels, river fishing, walks in the woods, and adventures in the many parks!
On the official site of the Apennines and Greenery in Emilia Romagna, you can find a wide range of Nature Vacation deals, always up to date and organized by themes and time periods.
The spring season dedicates many events to slow tourism in the nature reserve of the Po Delta, with hikes, bike rides, boat rides, horseback riding, tastings, lessons and labs. Do not miss the Birdwatching Days in mid-May. Until June 21.

A nearly 500 kilometre route links two National Parks, five Regional parks and one Inter-regional park, and offers the best of the Apennine mountains, places with vast panoramic views, wild nature, and historic traces of ancient boundaries.
