Argenta probably arose in Roman times, however, tradition tells that it was built by the will of Esuperatius, Bishop of Ravenna from 425 to 430 on the right bank of the river Po, in the vicinity of the church of S. Giorgio, the oldest cult place in the district, today about 1 km away from the town.

Things to see: Pieve San Giorgio, Sanctuary of Celletta, Delizia di Bevignante, Valli di Campotto. The placename Valli di Campotto signifies a section of the Regional Park of the Po Delta, which lies within the municipality of Argenta.

We leave Argenta from the Parish Church, Via Mazzini, we continue along Via le Roiti, we cross Via Nazionale State Highway SS16 and carry on along Via Cristo, up to the embankment of the Reno, the river we have encountered at Traghetto, at the confluence with Po di Primaro. The river bank will be now our guide for this stage and the next. After 4,5 km we are at San Biagio, inside one of the few bends of the river. For a further 16 km we shall walk along the embankment, with on the left and the right luscious cultivations, typical of the reclamation works, interspaced by numerous canals, up to the next bend where we find the confluence of Provincial Highway SP10 with SP15,(leading to Alfonsine after 5 km); if we turn right on the bridge, where we might enjoy some refreshments, we can also visit the Sanctuary on Via Madonna del Bosco, or taking the parallel lane through the fields, we shall arrive at Anita (2,5 km) where we can halt in a hostel (0532 808058 / 3386777099), otherwise we continue along the embankment of the Reno and we arrive,  after  6km, to the agritourims Prato a Pozzo.

WARNING! in the wetlands of the plains provide yourself with products against mosquitoes
