Po River

The Po River is the longest river in Italy, winding 650km from the Cottian Alps of Piedmont to the Adriatic Sea on the Po Delta. The river passes through Turin, Pavia, Piacenza, Cremona & Ferrara before entering the Adriatic Sea through several mouths on the Po Delta. The river flows through the Po Valley which is Italy's most important industrial and agricultural region and the river is used extensively for irrigation in the region.

The Piedmont region which relies heavily on the Po River, produces two thirds of Italy's rice and is one of the leading wine producers in Italy.
