Sport dal Po...all'Appennino

THE HEART-SHAPED LAND BETWEEN THE PO RIVER AND THE APENNINES

The Po River marks the northern border of the province of Piacenza for more than one hundred kilometres. Cycle paths for bicycles and mountain bikes run along the river offering wonderful sceneries and glimpses of cities and towns to be discovered or simply admired from afar; paths filled with the atmosphere of the plain of Emilia, which run along the same route as the ancient Via Francigena, transforming our two-wheel tour or holiday into an unforgettable experience.
