Departure – Arrival: Valeggio s/M – Pontoncello (VR)
Length of stretch: 35 km
Natural freshwater springs, sometimes made to surface by man, the Risorgive (or Fontanili) are one of the characteristic natural phenomena of the Po Valley, from which this new cycle path, inaugurated in 2017, gets its name.
The starting point for this 35 km route is Valeggio sul Mincio. Departing from the banks of the river it is in fact possible to reach the banks of the Adige near the centre of Verona (precisely 12 km between San Giovanni Lupatoto and Zevio), passing through the towns of Villafranca, Povegliano, Vigasio, Castel d'Azzano and Buttapietra, alternating between rural tracks and excellent surfaced stretches.
Shortly before point of arrival on the Adige, the crossing of the new cycle-pedestrian bridge over the Enel dam is now part of the route. The long distance between the Porto San Pancrazio Bridge in Verona and the Perez Bridge in Zevio is halved, allowing an easy transfer from one cycle route to the other on the two banks of the river Adige. This creates an interesting circuit between the so-called Paesi Adesanti on the two sides and adds value to the Parco di Pontoncello park.
