Built on 13 islands, this town is now landlocked but surrounded by the Po River and freshwater wetlands. Highlights: Comacchio and its "Trepponi" bridge Accommodation: B&B Al Ponticello (or similar)

Your hotel is a restored convent near the central square of this regional market center and famous ceramics town. Enjoy the bustle in the market square and the main "piazza" which is always full of bicycle riders of all ages.

Highlights: Faenza International Ceramics Museu and Renaissance Town Square Accommodation: Hotel Vittoria (or similar)
Day 6
Over the Apennines / +64km - +1286m
You will head into the Apennine mountains today, passing first through the colorful medieval village of Brisighella. Take a break and pick up some snacks for the climb. If you decide you prefer to take the train up and over the mountains, feel free to do so! For those who decide to bicycle, begin the climb over the Apennines - remember to look around as you pedal, since the scenery changes dramatically, as you leave the plains and enter the mountains. Just before we reach the toughest part of our climb, there is a very conveniently located train station, from where you could choose to hop on for the last and toughest part of the climb. You'll spend the night in Ronta, a small mountain town where you'll enjoy the clean and crisp mountain air. Dinner is included tonight.
