The Emilia Romagna region
Emilia Romagna has many historic cities with loads of sights. Bologna and Ferrara absolutely deserve a visit of at least a few days and, although it's a major industrial centre, Modena has a Romanesque cathedral as good as any in Italy.
While in Emilia Romagna be sure to enjoy the food. The region offers some of the finest culinary traditions of the Italian peninsula. Parma has its cheese and ham, Ferrara has is salame, Bologna nicknamed la grassa, or the fat one, does a great mortadella and is the birthplace of tortellini.
BOLOGNA: this beautiful city has food for the mind as well as the belly. An exceedingly cultured and sophisticated town, with some beautiful architecture. Set aside a day or two of your vacation in Emilia-Romagna for a visit to Bologna.
A superb and unspoiled medieval centro storico is the chief reason for visiting MODENA. You have to see the 12th century cathedral (duomo) during your holiday in Emilia-Romagna ... one of the finest Romanesque structures on the planet.
PARMA has the highest standard of living in Italy, an affluent town even by Emilia-Romagna's elevated standards. A pleasant, comfortable town, a big reason for a visit to Parma is the superb food. Parma ham and Parmesan cheese is just the beginning.
REGGIO EMILIA is a quiet, ancient town, with a cathedral and some fine churches and galleries. Parma is an elegant, affluent city with its own opera house, while sleepy Piacenza marks the western border with Lombardy.
RAVENNA is today a centre of art, culture and, famously 'the city of mosaics'. Be sure to visit Ravenna during your vacation in Emilia-Romagna.
Also visit FERRARA during your vacation in Emilia-Romagna. A fascinating historic town, it was once the base of the Dukes of Este, who built a model and very beautiful town.
GALLERIA FERRARI IN MARANELLO: The Galleria, ideally, is divided into four areas, each capable of satisfying the expectations of competition fans and those passionate about classic cars. Here visitors will find Formula 1, themed exhibitions, technological innovations and photographic shows.
The visit begins in the space where the automobiles are on display.
It is has become the place where Ferrari’s past, present and future is preserved, giving the visitor a fascinating insight into the history of the Prancing Horse.
Zocca is characterized by a mountain landscape of great importance, along with an important network of pathways for hikers, horseback riders and mountain bikers through ancient villages, castles and churches. Many are the recreational activities offered: a vast and diverse program of events enlivens the summer season.
Zocca is known as one of the Cities of the Chestnut: during the month of October, the renowned Festival of the Chestnut is hold here.
A large part of the territory is occupied by the Regional Park of Sassi di Roccamalatina, natural habitat of great importance, visited for both learning purposes, as well as for recreational activities, and ideal destination for hikers and mountain bikers.

"Dreadful roads to a beautiful property"
We really enjoyed our holiday, and Sylvia was a very helpful host, particularly when our car suffered two punctures and had to have all four wheels replaced. The details of this holiday should come wi… More
Hello, I am the manager and I would like to reply to this review. An unpaved road cannot cause punctures to cars' wheels. Only nails and screws can. However, the road has undergone maintenance at the beginnin of May 2012 and therefore it is accessible by all sort of cars.
