Art, culture and good food are plentiful in Emilia Romagna! If you want some tips to see the best of this region, Wine and Travel Italy has prepared for you a tour of 5 essential destinations!
A visit to the region must obviously include Bologna, the capital of the region; porticoes, large public squares and literary cafés are the hallmarks of this city. While here, you must also visit the 2 Gentilizie towers: the Asinelli and the Garisenda.
Another place to visit is Ferrara, a city that runs along the banks of the river Po. Its monuments are of great historical interest, notably the Castello Estense and the Cattedrale di San Giorgio.

For those who love having fun, Rimini is without a doubt the best suited Emilian city, with its well-equipped seaside resorts and nightclubs open until dawn, where each year the best DJs on the planet come to entertain.
A stop in Parma is imperative, and particularly a visit to the Teatro Regio, whose beauty rivals that of the more famous Scala di Milano. Every year in October, a festival dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi is organized, bringing together lovers of good music.
Our next stop is Ravenna, famous for its Byzantine mosaics and Christian monuments, which have been included among the Unesco World Heritage sites. And if that’s not enough, you’ll also find in Ravenna the tomb of Dante, the father of the Italian language.
