Cycle trails along the river Po

Tuesday, 21 September 2021 13:57

The Via Po cycle path (www.visitemilia.com) in the Piacentino area follows the right bank of the Po river for 110 kilometres through woodlands and the Parco di Isola Giarola with an artificial lake and typical local fauna and flora, and then skirts the city of Piacenza towards the Apennine passes.

Boating and walking tours

It’s worth stopping at the Isola Serafini, the only inhabited area on ​​the Po river, to enjoy the river landscape on foot or by boat with tours organized in collaboration with the Adda Sud Park. Along the itinerary you also encounter local specialties such as the Cacio del Po and Piacenza’s cheeses, and discover gems such as the Castle of San Pietro in Cerro.  There are ancient and modern treasures on display in the Sala delle Armi and also in the MIM Museum in Motion, a constantly evolving collection of over 1500 works by contemporary artists.

Langhirano’s Museum of Prosciutto

Along the Art Trail between Langhirano and Torrechiara you pass through hills and vineyards along the San Michele canal, from the Abbey of Santa Maria della Neve to the Castle of Torrechiara. Starting from the Benedictine Abbey, an architectural gem commissioned by Pier Maria Rossi that has survived unscathed with its Baroque frescoes, refectory, belvedere and cloister, passing through vineyards and lush countryside you come to Langhirano, home to the Museum of Prosciutto.
