Tastings, cookery lessons, gastronomic tours, even tailor-made ones
Lying between the river Po to the north and the Apennines to the south, Emilia Romagna offers breathtaking landscapes, in a whirlwind of colours and scents of the earth, joy, music, cinema and art. Bologna encompasses art, history and architecture: the symbols of the city are the Asinelli Tower, with its 498 steps offering a breathtaking view of the city, and the Garisenda Tower. Ferrara, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, still retains its Renaissance splendour. In Modena, the Italian city famous for Balsamic vinegar and home of tortellini, you can visit the enchanting historic centre with its Romanesque cathedral and the Ghirlandina Bell Tower.
A land of gourmets, Emilia Romagna cusine is rich in strong and refined flavours: from the peasant flavours of Emilia to the seafood flavours of Romagna, passing through the lagoon of the Comacchio Valleys with its renowned eels.
