The Ceno is a 63 km-long tributary of the Taro River, flowing entirely the Province of Parma, northern Italy. It joins the Taro on its left side at Fornovo.

The Ceno seen from the castle of Bardi.

Like the Taro, the Ceno has its source on Monte Penna, in the Ligurian Apennine, though it rises on the opposite side of the mountain to the Taro. The Ceno's average final volume is approximately half that of the Taro, but can vary substantially depending from the season, its discharge occasionally reaching up to above 1000 m³/s.
