Towns of Emilia

Bologna

Ravenna

Emilia Romagna boasts some of the most beautiful towns in Italy overflowing with Byzantine art and architecture. The tranquil landscape is en lived by small villages with their traditional popular customs celebrating the different seasons with festivals and feasts. The excellent infrastructure means that you are never more than an hour from Bologna, Ravenna, Modena, Parma or the sandy beaches of the Adriactic coast. It is a region which has something for everybody.

BOLOGNA: the principal city of the region is in itself a treasure, boasting 38 museums, one for every kilometre of portico. It is a young city - yet also home to the oldest university in Europe housing churches and buildings each concealing countless masterpieces such as the churches of Santo Stefano and San Domenico. Close by you will find MODENA, blessed with beautiful piazzas, Romanesque cathedrals and the Estense Gallery, a true treasure chest of masterpieces from the Emiliana and Padana painting schools.

FERRARA is an esoteric city evoked by Carra` and De Chirico. It has been called the first modern city of Europe, induced by the remains of the elegant court of the Estensi Princes.

REGGIO EMILIA, with its two peoples theatres always announcing the latest forthcoming shows, is a city which never forgets its past: the Cathedral, the Romanesque baptistery and the Basilica of San Prospero. PARMA is magical: it is a delight to lose yourself within the galleried archways of the baptistery, the domes colourfully decorated with frescoes by Correggio and Parmegianino and to hear the beautiful opera singing coming from within the Teatro Regio.

PIACENZA is the northernmost of the provincial cities and lies between the river Po and the green Apennine mountains. To this day its magnificent Dome, in the mediaeval centre of the city, is perfectly preserved.

FAENZA is the capital of ceramic artistry the Faence.

FORLI boasts the church of San Mercuriale, a Romanesque building whose mighty bell tower stretches upwards virtually touching the sky, providing all onlookers a truly powerful and majestic sight.

Byzantine mosaics of RavennaCESENA a lively and vibrant city with an immaculately preserved ancient city centre. The humanist ideals of the once ruling Malatesta family, flourishes even today within the walls of the Malatestiana Library, a temple of knowledge and guardian of valuable illuminated manuscripts.

RAVENNA is the city of Byzantine gold, which sparkles in the mosaic patterns in the mausoleums and basilicas. Finally, RIMINI with its long, wide sandy beaches, fashionable haunts and a Fellini like atmosphere. But scratch a little beneath the surface and you will find traces of ancient Roman Empire and masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance.
