An Apennine stream easy to sail and very attractive, running through a wild and unspoiled valley, where you can still enjoy the beauty of nature in silence.
Along the Aveto valley and the adjacent Trebbia valley you will realize that the area is dotted with small villages and sacred buildings, bearing witness to a past rich in history and culture.
An Apennine stream easy and 'playful', also suitable for less experienced paddlers (still to be reckoned in case of very high water levels).
The rapids are quite short and not too steep.
To note that the flood on September 13th-14th, 2015 has changed the river in many places and they are doing maintenance work.
The river is simple and there are no transshipments. Part of the reach is in a gorge.
Recommended to dress appropriately to the quite cold water temperature.
Wear basic equipment (helmet, life jacket, etc).
Small town of Roman origin included in the list of "Italys most beautiful Villages".
