New Old Pic of Beautiful River Trebbia

Dear friends of Altavaltrebbia,

a very long time has passed since the last post on altavaltrebbiablog. For many reasons I was not able to take care of the blog, and lots has changed since the last time I wrote.

The “most beautiful valley in the world” is always on my mind, and more than ever I would love as many new visitors to come and share its stories.

I am publishing a few new old pictures of the Trebbia, which in my mind is THE iconic river, hoping they will inspire you to come and swim in its turquoise waters next summer.

These pictures were taken in summer 2012, along the Statale 45 between the villages of Ottone and Rovegno (location Rocca dei Corvi and bridge to Fontanarossa).

Knowing the unspoilt nature of Val Trebbia, I trust everything has stayed very much the same.

Come and explore one of the Italy’s last pieces of paradise next summer!

The best places to swim in the Trebbia

While driving along statale 45 from Genoa to Piacenza last weekend, I was very surprised to notice the high number of visitors having a swim or sunbathing on the banks of river Trebbia. It’s not August yet, the month that normally welcomes the most visitors, but the river has already become a favourite weekend destination!

Although river Trebbia is well known, perhaps not everybody is aware that its wildest part is the section of the river running after Bobbio towards Genoa. Amazing hidden corners and little lakes are a proper feature of the river in Alta Val Trebbia and offer views that rival the beaches of Croatia, Cote d’Azur and other “exotic” holiday resorts.

This post offers an overview of the best spots to swim and relax on the river. Geographical coordinates are also included and all pictures are taken from Panoramio and Google Earth.

Have a nice time on river Trebbia!

I could not find many pictures of the river between  Marsaglia and Rovegno and I would be very thankful if you could share some with me and the Alta Val Trebbia blog’s followers.

Shall you have some, don’t hesitate to contact altavaltrebbia@gmail.com!

I migliori angoli del Trebbia

Percorrendo la statale 45 da Genova a Piacenza questo fine settimana sono stata piacevolmente sorpresa dal numero di visitatori presenti lungo il fiume Trebbia. Siamo appena a Luglio e già il fiume attrae visitatori come nel pieno di Agosto!

Forse non tutti sanno però che ben dopo Bobbio, e quindi più all’interno dell’Alta Valle, il fiume offre paesaggi e meandri spettacolari da fare invidia alle spiagge della Croazia, Costa Azzurra e altre mete “esotiche”.

Questo post offre una panoramica corredata da fotografie (caricate da vari utenti su Panoramio) e coordinate tratte da Google Earth dei migliori punti in cui tuffarsi nelle acque turchesi del fiume più pulito d’Italia.

Buone vacanze!

Sfortunatamente non sono riuscita a trovare foto del tratto del fiume tra Marsaglia e Rovegno, che nasconde angoli davvero interessanti.
