What not to miss
The Po River flows for more than 100 kilometers in the area around Piacenza, delineating the western boarder of Emilia Romagna. It unites history and landscape as it runs through the region before emptying out into the Adriatic Sea, crossing through the lands around Reggio Emilia, full of exquisite little towns.
A nearly 500 kilometre route links two National Parks, five Regional parks and one Inter-regional park, and offers the best of the Apennine mountains, places with vast panoramic views, wild nature, and historic traces of ancient boundaries.
Those who love bikes and nature can now pedal on 10 new bike paths inside 9 regional parks and a nature reserve, from Piacenza to Romagna, easily reached by train and by trails with varying degrees of difficulty.
