River Po in Turin
In a sunny afternoon I got a small boat trip along the river Po in Turin.
Actually the trip is very short and does not worth a lot, but at least gave me the opportunity to take some new shot not just along the walking street but also under the old bridges that cross in several points the river.
The river Po (called Eridanus by Latin) is a river that flows either 652 km eastward across northern Italy, from a spring seeping from a stony hillside at Pian del Re, a flat place at the head of the Val Po through a delta projecting into the Adriatic Sea near Venice. It is connected to Milan through a net of channels called navigli, which Leonardo da Vinci helped to design.
The river is subject to heavy flooding. Consequently over half its length is controlled with argini, or dikes.
