Description

By bicycle through Cadeo - Zena - Carpaneto P.no - Rezzano - Sariano - La Valle - Gropparello - Sariano - Celleri - Carpaneto P.no - Cerreto Landi - Chero - Cadeo.

THE TRACK: Between Carpaneto P.no and Gropparello hills grow higher, and so does hunger.Luckily, you are in the right place ! Carpaneto,in effect, may be considered the capital of coppa piacentina, one of the best known and appreciated specialities outside Piacenza's province. The track passes by Sariano, with its church,the ruins of the romanesque castle and Gragnana Tower, built in 1554 maybe upon a project by Vignola; it subsequently goes by Gropparello and its beautiful castle built sheer upon a ravine and surrounded by the Fairy tale Park . You'll also pass by Celleri with Palazzo Tibertelli and Cadeo, owing its name to the ancient "Casa Dei", refreshment area and abode for pilgrims, built in 1080 and the remains of which are still visible.
