Salt Route Bike Trail

Salt Route Bike Trail

The Salt Route Bike Trail is a 278km long path amidst nature inside the Po Delta Park region. This amateur bike itinerary takes place alongside with the traditional Salt Route by sea - part of the town’s heritage - that historical boats with their load of salt sail up from Cervia’s canal harbour to Venice, also known as the Serenissima.
