First Stage - From Modena to Modena passing through Nonantola - 50 km
A journey through navigable canals, docks, and land reclamation works: retracing the known lanes where animals used to pull boats against the current. The Naviglio Modenese left the city behind the Ducal Palace and, passing through Bastiglia, reached Bomporto where it joined the Panaro River. The octagonal-shaped and marble-decorated dock of Bomporto is interesting and unique in its kind.
Return through the territory of Partecipanza Agraria and the town of Nonantola, famous for the Abbey of San Silvestro and its ancient monastic complex: the church features beautiful apses, and the interior and crypt are very evocative.
Before completing the itinerary, a pleasant stop in nature can be made at the historic estate of Villa Sorra with its romantic English garden amidst groves, meadows, water mirrors, statues, and caves.
Second Stage - Modena-Vignola - 74 km
From Modena to Vignola on the former railway cycle path, passing through historic centers, with a return through the hills and, in the final part, through a section of the Tiepido Nature Trail.
Discover the gentle hills of Modena, pedaling through the cherry fields of Vignola and the famous vineyards of Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro. Some towns deserve a stop to admire the beauty of their historic centers: Spilamberto with its Rocca Rangoni, Vignola with the medieval castle, one of the most interesting examples of fortified architecture, Levizzano Rangone with the fortress of Matildic origin, Castelvetro, a rare example of a medieval village animated by towers and bell towers, and Castelnuovo with its tower and the bronze pig.
