Between the Ticino and Po rivers

Alla scoperta di acque e castelli in provincia di Pavia

A 100 km long water themed itinerary taking tourists on a fascinating journey through environmental, historic and cultural heritage.

The Integrated Area Project Fra il Ticino e il Po: alla scoperta di acque e castelli (From the Ticino to the Po: discovering water and castles) which Pavia Province is promoting is a PIA Integrated Area Project covered by ASSE 4 - Tutela e valorizzazione del patrimonio naturale e culturale of the Lombardy Region Operations Plan (POR) designed to implement the European Regional Development Fund (FESR), in the context of EC 'Regional Competitivity and Employment' goals.

This was designed by Pavia province together with local people and their main representatives. From Vigevano town, in concrete terms the gate towards Milan and Expo Milan 2015, the itinerary passes through the whole of Pavia province as far as Piacenza and Lodi provinces to the east.

It has been designed to intersect with Milan's Navigli canals and take tourists directly to the regional capital and the Expo Milan 2015 exhibition centre. It is made up of 20 projects in all with 14 partners and almost ten million Euro of investments set aside with the objective of a completion date before the end of 2015.

The goal is to transform the area, make it a better place to live in for local residents and user friendly and attractive to visitors who want to combine cultural visits with walks and bicycle trips in the natural environment. And all this in view of Expo 2015 when millions of visitors will come to Milan wanting to discover a region with a thousand, wonderful faces. The itinerary will be waymarked with information boards bearing a logo designed especially to express the region's pluralist identity and the salient characteristics of the area between the Ticino and Po rivers.
