The Burana cycle path – around Ferrara
A 56 km circular route running along the Burana Canal and the Po river
The Burana cycle path is a 56 kilometer-long circular route almost entirely lined with trees.
The path along the Burana Canal (which was dug in the early 1900s after the reclamation of the Terre Basse) is mostly paved, flat, characterized by long straights, and flanked for large stretches by two rows of poplars where it is possible to nimbly and effortlessly cycle along.
After the town of Vigarano Mainarda, where the Diamantina palace once belonged to the Este family is visible from afar, and after passing the Cavo Napoleonico (another artificial canal), visitors reach Bondeno.
Once reached Bondeno, the itinerary goes on and joins a section of the Destra Po cycle path up to Francolino, from which Ferrara can be reached by following the FE203 cycle path.
