Discovering Compiano on two wheels!

A half day to admire some of the Taro Valley symbolic places by bike: an E-MTB pleasant cycling along the paths winding from Bedonia to Compiano in order to know one of the most beautiful villages in Italy and then during the visit to Compiano Castle, The Landi Princes’ ancient residence, later on the mansion of a bizarre Marquise who devoted herself to collect furnishings and works of art.

You will meet your guide at Bedonia, where you will take a short bike ride to test your E-MTB and then you will cycle along pleasant paths, surrounded by nature, to reach the historic centre of Compiano where you will admire its still medieval layout.

Compiano is counted among the most beautiful villages in Italy. That ancient urban conglomeration, mentioned since 1021, arose on the historical route that connected Emilia, Tuscany and Liguria and still today it dominates the Taro High Valley.

Then you will get to the Castle to visit its museum collections kept inside that millenary manor, built to defend the Taro Valley, where you will enjoy the rich eclectic collection exhibited in those sumptuous rooms, tastefully furnished by their last owner, the Marquise Lina Raimondi Gambarotta.

Finally you might also visit, on your own, the International Masonry Museum, the only one in Italy, which is connected to the historical period when in 1823 and 1831 Compiano Castle was used as a prison and some political dissidents, exponents of the Carbonarist Movement and Freemasonry, were imprisoned there.

At last cycling back to Bedonia.
