The Po Delta now - autumn

Parco Regionale Veneto del Delta del Po giornata uggiosa

The Po Delta autumnal climate is rather typical in this area. The wetlands favor regular phenomenon in the Pianura Padana: the fog. Lately it has been  less cyclic, fortunately, so  during the lovely days it's possible  to experience and appreciate the typical rural landscape of the Po Delta. If you weren't familiar with  the Polesine environment, you would be a bit baffled;  the wide flat space, in which you sometimes don’t see  a house or a small town on the horizon and in the late summer  it   abundant with  crops of corn, soya and wheat. Along the roadsides, it's easy to see kestrels and buzzards  perched on the poplars, while on the river bank and channel, herons and egrets are waiting to catch   small fish. Salicornia veneta is characteristic in this period, it is found on the edge of the lagoons where the salinity of the soil is over 1%, in the months of October and November it changes its color and becomes an intense red. In autumn, in some wetlands in the Sacca di Scardovari, Oasis Cà Mello, and in the lagoon of Caleri they are definitely a great natural sight to see.

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.
