Chioggia, also known as Little Venice, has a wonderful cycle path that runs along the Lusenzo lagoon, which is the first section of our itinerary and will take you first to Sottomarina and then to Brondolo. Particular attention should be paid to the crossing of the river Brenta, which you must do by passing over the bridge of the SS Romea; immediately afterwards turn right and follow the Po Brondolo lagoon canal, until you reach the Adige. Even in this case, we cross the river on the SS Romea and once past it we take the Destra Adige in the direction of the mouth, a cycle path that we follow until we meet the Via delle Valli. Here begin twelve kilometres of extraordinary beauty, the route runs through lagoons and fishing basins that will take you to the Po di Levante, at the mouth of which is the ferry-boat that allows you to reach Porto Levante.

Once in Scanarello, a handful of houses on the banks of the Po di Maistra, you can either take the road that leads to Boccasette or the one that leads to Ca’ Venier. In both cases, cycling along the banks of the Po di Maistra you arrive at the bridge that crosses the Po di Venezia and leads to the Isola della Donzella. Descending from the bridge we continue along the cycle path until first reaching Ca’ Mello, a small hamlet of Porto Tolle, and then on to the Sacca degli Scardovari, with the splendid panoramic road that runs alongside it. Heading south we find in quick succession Santa Giulia, after the first pontoon bridge Gorino Sullam and before the other pontoon bridge Gorino Veneto.
