Val Luretta is formed by the Luretta torrent, which arises from the union of two branches, the Luretta di Monteventano, also known as the upper Luretta, and the Luretta di San Gabriele, also known as the Lower Luretta; it extends up to the Po valley, where the Luretta flows into the Tidone, bordering on the west with the Tidone valley and the Chiarone valley and on the east with the Trebbia valley. At the head of the valley are the Caldarola pass and Mount Serenda, from whose slopes the branch of the Luretta di San Gabriele rises.
Like many other valleys of the Apennines, Val Luretta offers breathtaking landscapes, surrounded by hills and mountains, covered with woods, meadows and vineyards. The valley is known for its pristine nature and peaceful environment, making it an ideal destination for nature and outdoor enthusiasts.
The area is also known for producing fine wines, with vineyards extending over the surrounding hills. Visitors can enjoy wine tastings in local cellars and discover the typical flavors of Emilia-Romagna's food and wine.
