The Italian Job – day 12

Ferrara to Abano Terme

Initially the route follows the River Po and away from the Po it passes through vineyards, orchards and non-descript agricultural land. The route is flat as a pancake for the first 45 miles and includes cycling along more levees by the canals before venturing into a stunning National Park to tackle a few last hills before the finish at Abano Terme and a glass cold prosecco plus a few beers!  (Description based on route notes from Peak Tours).

A respite from the hills and intense heat of the previous days except for the final climb up through the National Park.
