“Leaving Sant’Isepo, turn right and cross the bridge, then turn left and walk along the canal until you reach Viale Garibaldi, a peaceful, tree-lined esplanade dotted with benches and frequented by families. Crowning the end of the Viale is the monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi, the Italian military hero; the murky pond beneath is full of turtles and fish, to the delight of local children.”
