Tidone Valley is formed by Tidone river and for its most part included in Piacenza province. This valley begins at the foot of Monte Penice (1460 m above sea level) and extends on a hilly area sloping toward the plateau where Tidone river joins Po river. 
Tidone Valley is famous for its delicious P.D.O. cured meats (coppa, pancetta, salame) and for its scented D.O.C. wines, not to mention the excellent typical first courses such as tortelli con la coda, pisarei e faso’, ravioli, and much more!
Tidone Valley is also the headquarters of A.S.D. I CINGHIALI DELLA VAL TIDONE association, which from this year included trekking among its activities. All paths are duly indicated and mapped by Cinghiali in Val Tidone, perfect to be treaded on foot.
The Association mapped around 100 km of MTB itineraries that can also be treaded on foot, and from April to October organises guided group excursions including a follow-up activity with the delicious local food to be savoured in the quiet atmosphere of agritourisms and trattorie in the area. It is possible to visit the numerous wine cellars and the producers of cured meats who also offer tasting tours and sell their products on site.
