Three villages in the province that deserve a visit are Rivergaro, Bobbio and Grazzano Visconti.

RIVERGARO
If you visit Piacenza in summer or spring, and have an afternoon to relax, you will certainly have to go to Rivergaro, where there are long beaches on the Trebbia, very popular among the Piacenza people, especially on Sunday afternoon, fantastic for sunbathing and refreshing. The village, very lively in the hot season, offers different kinds of premises, from ice cream parlours to farm houses, and a few kilometres from the centre there is a water park, the River Park.

River Po

 

BOBBIO
Bobbio is one of the most suggestive places in the area where, besides the library that houses manuscripts of inestimable value, there is the Ponte Gobbo that crosses the river Trebbia. About the cause of the fact that this structure is not regular but “hunched” there are several legends, including the one that says that St. Columbanus decides to want to build a bridge, but the disease comes across the population of Bobbio and therefore the timing becomes long, until the devil presents himself saying that he would finish the construction in one night provided that then he was given as a gift the soul of those who would travel the bridge first; San Colombano accepts and in one night the bridge is finished. The day after the inauguration the bishop made a pig pass first on the bridge, and the Devil, angry at this trap decides to ruin the bridge, making it hunchback.

 

GRAZZANO VISCONTI
Grazzano Visconti is a “fake medieval” village, built in the early 1900s by Duke Giuseppe Visconti di Modrone, along the lines of the medieval ones. Inside there is a large park, of about 150,000 square meters, which is often animated by events of various kinds, from the Chocolate Fair, to the Halloween Festival and the Festival of Owls. It is ideal for a trip out of town if you have children as the events are designed especially for them.
