Emilia-Romagna stretches coast-to-coast just north of Tuscany and is best known for its food — Parma ham, parmesan cheese, Bolognese sauce, and balsamic vinegar. Its cities (Bologna, Modena, Parma, Ferrara, Ravenna, Piacenza, Rimini) have medieval cathedrals, towers, castles and art treasures to explore. Bologna has two leaning towers, a beautiful opera house, Italy’s first university and an ancient arcaded shopping area. Opera lovers can follow in the footsteps of Verdi, who was born here. Visit the ceramics museum in Faenza and the stunning Byzantine mosaics of Ravenna. Auto lovers can tour the Ferrari factory. Think of Emilia-Romagna for hot cars, fabulous food and wine, ceramics, mosaics, beautiful rolling hills, mountains, parks and beaches.
