The Delta of River Po is a beautiful land still largely unknown, to discover slowly, finding the sweetness of the landscape, the warm and rough of the lodges, the emotion of the bridges of boats, the mystery of the thick reeds, the vast horizons , the activities in the valleys, lagoons and gardens, to the charm of the mouth and extreme stalls, strips of fine sand in continuity with the Adriatic Sea.
It extends from the Po di Goro up to the Adige River and it is including the territory of the 9 municipalities: Rosolina, Porto Viro, Loreo, Adria, Papozze, Ariano in the Delta of Po, Corby, Cuttack, Porto Tolle, all in the province of Rovigo, with a total population of approximately 73,000 residents within the park boundaries.
The Regional Park of Delta of Po is part of the Interregional Park of Delta of Po including also The Regional Park of Delta of Po in Emilia Romagna.
The park was established by L.R. 8 September 1997, n.36.
The area of Delta of River Po is given by the progressive deposition of debris from the River Po and this is happening in a long period of time. As a result the coastline is in a progressive shifting inside the Adriatic Sea.
The Park of the Delta of Po has the largest extent of wetlands protected in Italy. The flora is extremely different and it includes a thousand different species (thanks to the variety of environments that includes the Park). The same is true for the fauna (over 400 different species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fishes).
The presence of birds is so important (over 300 species, nesting and wintering) so why the Delta of Po is one of the most important ornithological area in Italy and one of the most famous in Europe for birdwatching enthusiasts.
Among amphibians deserve a mention the presence of rare Pelobates Fuscus.
