Visiting Emilia-Romagna: discovering its most beautiful cities
All the provinces of Emilia-Romagna hold unique and surprising treasures, so if you want to move comfortably from one city to another, a car is undoubtedly the most suitable means of transport.
Renting a car in the region is very easy with Maggiore, which has numerous offices in the main cities of Emilia-Romagna.
To rent a car in Emilia-Romagna, you can go to the offices in Bologna, one located at Guglielmo Marconi airport and two in the centre, or the offices in Faenza, Modena, Parma, Ravenna and Reggio Emilia.
In addition to its widespread presence in the area, Maggiore combines great professional-ism with a strong focus on customer needs, guaranteeing high standards of reliability and cleanliness of its vehicles.
Your holiday in Emilia-Romagna must begin with its capital Bologna, whose exception-ally varied land and richness has earned it three nicknames: the “Dotta” (Learned) referring to the fact that the city is home to the oldest university in the western world, dating back to 1088, the “Grassa” (Fat), which refers to its rich and hearty dishes, and the “Rossa” (Red), which refers to the colour of its terracotta towers and buildings.
A tour of Bologna will evoke unique emotions in you at every turn. Don’t miss Piazza Maggiore, the Basilica of San Petronio, the magnificent Palazzo Archiginnasio and the Asinelli Tower, where, after climbing 498 steps, you will reach the top at 97 metres high.
From the capital, take the A13 motorway and in about 40 minutes by car you can reach Ferrara, the “city of bicycles”, where you can immerse yourself in the beautiful historic centre, which includes the magnificent Castello Estense, the Duomo of San Giorgio, Palazzo Schifanoia and Palazzo dei Diamanti, so called because the external façade is made up of 8,500 blocks of white marble with pink streaks that create special light effects.
From Ferrara, head inland and visit Modena where, in addition to strolling through the centre and admiring fascinating monuments such as the Duomo and the Torre Ghirlandino, you can make a “pit stop” in Maranello, the “home” of the Prancing Horse and the Enzo Ferrari Museum.
But the places to visit in Emilia-Romagna don’t end here!
Continue into the hinterland of the region, and after making a stop at Reggio Emilia, where you should not miss the Chiostri di San Pietro, head to Parma. The long history and excellent cuisine of this city will surely captivate you, as will the attractions of its his-toric centre, such as the Certosa and Palazzo Ducale, and the charm of the castles in its surrounding areas, among which the Torrechiara Castle and the Bardi castle are worth seeing.
Head back to the coast to Ravenna, capital of three empires (the Western Roman Empire, the Gothic Empire of King Theodoric and the Byzantine Empire) and lose yourself in its countless artistic beauties, eight of which have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Since you are on the coast, it is impossible not to enjoy a few days of sea, sun and fun on the famous Riviera Romagnola which includes not only Rimini, the capital of tourism and nightlife on the Adriatic Riviera, but also other top seaside resorts such as Milano Marittima, Cesenatico, Cattolica and Riccione.
If you want to enjoy an original afternoon then be sure to visit “Italy in Miniature”, a quaint theme park with more than 270 Italian monuments reproduced to scale, or take a stroll through the fifth smallest country in the world, San Marino, just a 30-minute drive from Rimini.
