The Po delta now - summer


beccacceIThe Summer weather in the Po delta is very warm, sunny days compel people to move on the equipped beaches of Rosolina mare, Boccasette and Porto Barricata, where the sea breeze bring a feeling of relief, but if you love canoeing or sailing ON small boats through the  narrow channels “paradeli”, where the common kingfishers get hidden, you can reach some isolated sandbars (ScannoCavallari and Scano Boa), and strips of land that are formed at low tide and where there are numerous colonies of wading birds: gulls, terns etc.. Why the Po delta is so important ?

Because here are the main colonies throughout the Mediterranean-sea, to signal coral-sea gulls, avocets, plovers Italy, oystercatcher which lay eggs in the Scanni. Therefore, be careful because these years , the excessive and uncontrolled crowding during the breeding season, resulted in the abandonment of the sea environments, some species such as the little tern. In the coastal areas where the dunes have been safeguarded due to ammofila vegetation that manages to thwart the scattering of sand caused by the wind, stand out in the bushes of holly sea, prickly blue bruises with the corolla consisting of five pointed petals. The lagoons are a shallow salty area separated from the sea by sandbanks, where the salinity exceeds 1%, in the month of July Limonium blooms, it is a pretty plant lilac in  color which can be seen especially at the Botanical Garden of Porto Caleri.

The Delta

Parco del DeltaThe river Po, called the “gentle giant”, is the longest river in Italy. With its 650 km (about 400 miles), it runs through the Po Plain and flows into the Adriatic Sea, forming a delta and one of the largest wetlands in Europe and in the Mediterranean Sea.


Experiencing the Delta

Vivere il DeltaThe Po Delta is a wonderful land, most of which is still unknown. It should be experienced by walking slowly across it, discovering the gentleness of its landscape, the warm and rough welcome of the fishing lodges, the emotion of the boat bridges, the mystery of the thick canebrakes, the wide horizons, the activity in the fishing lagoons and in the vegetable gardens, the charm of the mouth and of the sandbars, strips of very thin sand following the seashore.
