The Reclamation Museum at Ca' Vendramin
Leaving the town of Ca' Tiepolo, visit the Museo della Bonifica in Ca' Vendramin, a few kilometres away. Here you will discover the important reclamation work done in the area, among channels kept dry by powerful water pumps in order to stabilise the land, which until then had been at the mercy of the elements. The plant was decommissioned at the end of the 1960s and transformed into the museum that tells the story of those decades in the setting of Art Nouveau pavilions.
The Santa Giulia pontoon bridge
Once you have finished visiting the museum, set off again towards the picturesque Santa Giulia pontoon bridge, one of the most photogenic subjects in the entire delta. The wooden roadway here rests on 22 concrete barges anchored crosswise to the current, with a raised section in the middle to allow the passage of small boats and a capital with a crucifix as was traditional on every bridge in ancient times. Enjoy this experience of bygone days surrounded by nature.
By boat to the mouth of the Po di Gnocca
Park your bike and round off this excursion with a boat trip to the mouth of the Po di Gnocca. Accompanied by local guides, you will enter a labyrinth of reeds to reach the last sand barrier, the Scanno del Bacucco, before the Adriatic. Take a good look around, it is not difficult to catch a glimpse of a small flock of oystercatchers, while seabirds such as little terns and swallows circle the boat.
