Parma - Route from Taro to Ceno

Via Francigena (Cento Laghi)


Here is a track full of very beautiful flora and fauna.  This itinerary crosses through the famous Val di Taro and Val Ceno going through rivers of the same names.  Along the pathway there are many stopping places, spaced out enough to take even several days if one wishes to complete this itinerary. Length: 170 km.  Highest altitude: 1800 meters.


Horse trails - Romagna Ferrara Bologna - Water ways


From Felegara to Castelcorniglio: 16 km (2 hours and 30 min.)

Here the biggest effort will be in immersing oneself in the nature and admiring the beauty offered by the environment.  The route is not very difficult and there are numerous creeks where the horses can stop to drink.  Between the town of Le Salde and Baracca, the path goes along the side of a spectacular gulley.


From Castelcorniglio to Pellegrino parmense: 17 km (6 hours)

This section is a variation from the usual bridle paths that can be found near Piacenza and which can be reached from here.  Some stretches can get difficult after a lot of rain, but they are still very beautiful, because they wind through large chestnut forests.


From Castelcorniglio to Bardi: 26 km (7 hours)

This route is easy with a good base and a moderate slope.  There are lots of places for horses to stop and drink.  Once in Bardi, you must visit the Landi Fortress.


From Bardi to Borgotaro: 30 km (8 hours)

As a whole, this stretch is not difficult: the base is varied, but generally good.  Along this path there are numerous springs.


From Borgo Val di Taro to Compiano: 18 km (4 hours and 30 min.)

Monte Poggio (1047 m.) is the intersecting point among these alternative routes and the Bardi-Borgotaro section of the main track.  In Compiano you can choose among pathways of varying levels of difficulty, both going towards Monte Poggio and towards Begonia.


From Borgo Val di Taro to Berceto: 21 km (5 hours)

This route has some relatively difficult points between the towns of San Bernardo and Bergotto and even more difficult patches near the mill in Brugna.  There are many creeks along the way.

From Berceli to Castelcorniglio: 26 km (7 hours)

Here there are not so many ups and downs.  Despite its frequently running over its edges between Val di Taro and Val Pessola, fording the Protone river is not usually dangerous.  The difficulty varies based on the depth of the water and the season.  The most interesting part if the stretch between Pagazzano and Calamello: from here there are other paths which branch out of medium difficulty.  They should be tried out because they will allow you to discover poetic and isolated little rural towns.
