The Valley of the Knights

Next year's Woolly!
After having enough of woods three weeks ago, and a rather wet week we decided to do the next step of 'Sentiero dei Ducati' by road.

The walk took us through part of The Valley of the Knights - for those of you not in the know, an area trapped between the Enza and Cedro, Reggio Emilia and Parma.
Others, like Carlo, might just call it a good fishing area.
Bridge over Enza
We walked down from Taviano to Selvanizza, where I had expected a bridge and river and, to my dismay, found 2 bridges and 2 rivers. But my map of strictly Reggio being utterly useless, put my trust in the road signs and made our way up ominously sounding Valcieca ( blind valley) to Vaestano over the bridge to Camporella and back to car.
3 and a half hours in all, including coffee at bridge and sharing picnic with cat at Vaestano. Weather not bad.
