Leg 16 - From Orio Litta to Piacenza

Total length
22.1 km

Leave Orio Litta and quickly reach the Ford of Sigerico, the "Transitum Padi", where you can ferry to the opposite bank in Soprarivo (0523 771607 ferryboat - call at least one day before). After a short crossing along the dyke of the Po, a series of rectilinear streets leads to Ponte Trebbia. Beyond the river a bicycle and pedestrian path leads to the entrance to Piacenza. Be careful arriving at Emilia Pavese Freeway in Ponte Trebbia and mind the section of the secondary road between Calendasco and Incrociata. Outside the populated areas there is no water supply.
