Outdoor itineraries

Parco Regionale Fluviale del Trebbia – Trebbia regional river park – is 30 km far from Trebbia river and covers the area from Rivergaro to Po confluence, on the western border of Piacenza urban area. Its landscape is dominated by Trebbia river bed, which is particularly important for migratory birds, and by river terraces where prairies and shrubs give way to traditional farmlands and extractive activities. 
Trekking routes have not all been completed so far, but in order to open to the public the most interesting areas of the Park, the organisation team has planned some themed paths on foot. Visitors can read descriptions distributed along the way, with information on the rich flora an fauna in the Park and its history.
