Taro Valley

The Taro river runs through its valley flowing through villages rich in history and traditions. Nature is at the center: from the course of the Taro to the highest peaks, from the woods where mushrooms, truffles, chestnuts expertly worked by man are born, to the ancient roads that cross the Valley, along ancient churches and castles.

From the first hills to the peaks and mountain passes, on the border with Liguria and Tuscany, Val Taro is an important area of the Parma Apennines, which is fortunate to be able to combine all the elements most loved by visitors: nature, history and good food.

Teeming historic centers, most visited destinations, but also open spaces and views to be enjoyed in complete freedom: Val Taro knows how to be loved, and knows how to amaze the most curious visitor.

The added value is then the people, many stories, lives, people ready to share and tell themselves, many of whom come from afar, often from big cities, and have chosen to come and live in Val Taro. Always a territory in motion, in a strategic point, where many ancient paths and modern networks of roads, highways and railways pass, this valley takes breath from the nearby city of Parma and then down, up to where you can already feel the sea air. Very particular climatic conditions, which have allowed the proliferation of environments, traditions and crops, and the list of experiences to do, places to see, dishes to taste is countless.

In addition to the famous mushroom of Borgotaro IGP, there are many other dishes that you will find only here, from the spongata of Berceto to the savory pies, passing through all the dishes with chestnut flour and the Amor, typical pastries of Borgotaro. There are also several areas of production of Parmigiano Reggiano and delicatessens, which offer the best of local cuisine.

To compensate for the “efforts” at the table, what is needed is a nice walk, and here you are spoiled for choice, paths and cycle paths, for all levels of difficulty, for those who are content to take a walk along the river and for those who want to see everything from above.

There is no shortage of sports places for those who want to go horseback riding, or fishing, mountain biking or motorbike on the many passes. The natural parks in the area offer as many outdoor activities, to enjoy the valley at the top of your lungs!
