Portogruaro-Portovecchio-Boldara-Sesto al Reghena-Bagnarola-Stalis-Cordovado-Teglio-Cintello-Portogruaro
An evocative itinerary known as “The Bread Route”, to discover the ancient mills on the Lemene River. It starts from Sant’Andrea Mill in the old town centre of Portogruaro, which now houses the Municipal Contemporary Art Gallery. We ride along the cycle path as far as Portovecchio, where we can visit the park of the sixteenth-century Villa Bombarda. Continue along GiraLemene Cycle Route as far as the Boldara Park, a nature reserve of 140 hectares of nature reserve with an eponymous mill. We leave again towards the Stalis Mills, used for centuries by the monks of the Benedictine Abbey of Santa Maria di Sesto al Reghena, refurbished and open to visitors during the summer. Following the dirt road to Cordovado, you can visit Venchiaredo Fountain literary park, the place described by Ippolito Nievo in his book “Confessions of an Italian”. Leave from here for Portogruaro.
