Punte Alberete is one of the last remaining freshwater marshes deriving from the ancient southern swampy forests of the Po Valley. It has a great variety of its landscapes, that range from hydric forests and swamped grasslands to open plains. Many nice birds can be seen here like Ferruginous Duck, Garganey, Eurasian Spoonbill, Little Egret, Pygmy Cormorant, Purple Heron, Glossy Ibis, Squacco Heron, Black-crowned Night-Heron, Great Bittern and Little Bittern.
The Oasis of Punte Alberete is situated north of Ravenna, close to Canale Fossatone. If you are travelling by car, drive along Strada Statale 309 "Romea" until km 8. You can start your visit from the car park next to Punte Alberete. There is a large car park at the southern entry and at a restraurant just in front to a second entry. The park is crossed by raised paths.
