Leg 16 - From Orio Litta to Piacenza

Total length
22.1 km

Leaving Orio Litta we quickly reach the Ford of Sigeric, the "Transitum Padi", where you can cross to the opposite bank in Soprarivo via ferry (0523 771607 ferryboat - call at least one day before). After a short way along the bank of the Po, a series of paths along state roads guides to Ponte Trebbia. Beyond the river a bicycle and pedestrian path leads to the entrance to Piacenza. Be careful at the Emilia Pavese state road in Ponte Trebbia and the secondary road between Calendasco and Incrociata. There is no water supply outside populated areas.
