To be travelled on foot

Millecampi valley is located in the Venetian estuary and is a wetland of great natural interest that extends for 1608 hectares on the border between the provinces of Padua and Venice.

The silent lagoon is an ideal habitat for many species of animals: ducks, waders, terns, black-winged stilts. A large number of birds, such as grebes and herons, reach the oasis every year to spend the winter. Many are the rare species such as loons, the white heron, black stork, the greater spotted eagle.

The important work done to recover the Casoni, the characteristic masonry work buildings of the valley, used by fishermen until a few decades ago, offers an additional reason to visit.

Some of the products grown on these lands are the radicchio and the Asparagus of Conche, served during the Festival held every year in late April and early May.

Valle Millecampi is of significant international cultural and landscape importance and is included in the serial UNESCO World Heritage property "Venice and its Lagoon".
