OP04 - The routes in the middle

A well designed canal network extends throughout the harmonious land between Oglio and Po rivers, a tangible sign of the drainage patiently carried out by man over the centuries.And it is amongst these fertile fields that you will begin your ride towards the ancient farmsteads which dot the provinces of Mantua and Cremona, and villages of incredible charm, such as Rivarolo Mantovano, which preserved its Renaissance appearance. Following some parts of the Delmona canal and of the historical via Giuseppina, a military road wanted by Napoleon Bonaparte, you will be able to find strong fortifications, stately villas, amongst which the magnificent palace Medici del Vascello, and Villa Mina della Scala Douglas Scotti, a unique structure halfway between a mansion and a military stronghold, near Casteldidone.
