The Po River A visit to Veneto’s major arts and culture centers of Padua, Verona and Venice from a waterborne perspective, from the Po valley to the lagoon and the delta canals reaching into the Adriatic Sea. Lombardy’s navigable routes, draw a common thread between the provinces of Pavia, Lodi, Cremona and Mantua, Milan’s navigli, two dozen bio diverse parks and a network of rivers and streams, outfalls and tributaries of Lakes Garda, Como and Iseo which merge into the Po.

Grana Padano is produced on the Po's left bank, Parmigiano Reggiano on the right bank

Cuneo in southwestern Piedmont is surrounded by the Alps and the Langhe hills. The traditional local punts are boats between seven and twelve meters in length. The name is derived from the nearly 4 meter long reinforced pole used to propel the boat by pushing against the riverbed.

The Po crosses Turin along with three other rivers, hence the nickname City of Four Rivers. The river environment includes a large pedestrian, bicycling, nature and educational system. The Murazzi district, with 19th Century warehouses and boat depots, is one of the trendiest in town.

The Sava is a 615 mile right side tributary of the Danube River that flows through Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia connecting the respective capital cities of Ljubljana, Zagreb and Belgrade. Among the few European rivers that does not drain into the sea, its river basin is home to over eight million people. 

The Delaware River is comprised of 36 tributaries and flows 330 miles from New York to Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware to the Atlantic Ocean. It extends from the Catskill and Pocono mountain springs and streams flowing down to the Delaware Water Gap where steep slopes give way to gently rolling hills and sweeping valleys. Then, it stretches 134 miles from the Trenton falls to the mouth of the Delaware Bay.

The Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay are home to two major metropolitan areas in the middle Atlantic region of the United States, Baltimore and Washington, DC. These water bodies and their tributaries offer recreational opportunities, historic sites and are in the forefront of state of the art watershed management practices.
