The River Po appears here as a thick black line making its way across Italy to the Adriatic Sea. Other smaller rivers and streams can also be seen north and south of the Po’s main waterway.

Here, the delta created by the River Po can be observed extending outwards into the Adriatic. It is considered an active delta, as its channels connect to the sea, particularly between the cities of Chioggia and Comacchio.
