Quote: Follow Italy’s Romantic Roman Road beside the River Po until it reaches its confluence with the Adriatic. Here in the Po Delta you will discover wide valleys, lagoons, vivid sunsets, and scores of aquatic birds. The flora and wildlife amid the brackish backwater provides paradise for hiking, treks, and biking.

Antique Meter Maids on bikes??? When we arrived in Adria, we parked our rental car on the street next to the canal--No parking meters, wow, what a discovery! We started out on foot to explore this picture post card town, but unfortunately our journey was soon interrupted by an elderly gentleman who approached on a bicycle. "Uno Euro," he said. We weren’t sure who he was, or exactly what he expected--but we knew he wanted one Euro (about $1.20). After a bit more questioning, we discovered that he was the local version of a "Meter Maid" and we could park for 3 hours for One Euro.
