Admittedly, Emilia-Romagna is famous for its beaches on the Adriatic coast, yet it is rather the interior of the land that concentrates the greatest number of treasures in the region, starting with its chef, the sensual Bologna. After a day or two visit to the red city, direction Ferrara and its imposing walls, before finishing this extended weekend in the heart of the inspiring city of Parma.

Detail of the stay : Stay in Emilia Romagna - 3 days

Day 1: Bologna

The discovery of Emilia Romagna must begin with this vital city. The ochre walls of its magnificent historic centre vibrate with the cosmopolitan youth who are its university, the oldest in Europe. It is nice to walk in the historic centre and discover the food that is renowned for the so-called red city (due to the colour of its monuments… and its political leanings) in the turn of a market, and why not garnish its picnic basket to that delle Erbe, open every day of the week.

Day 2: Ferrara Ferrara

A half hour from Bologna, well protected by its high walls inherited from the wars between paladins, Ferrara deserves a detour. The best way to explore its quiet streets is the bicycle, to rent on site. The family castle of Este and the Renaissance palaces make Ferrara a dive in another world. If the envy takes you, taste il pasticcio di maccheroni, local speciality in a trattoria in the heart of the city.

Day 3: Parma Parma

The gastronomic stage is evident in the city of ham and Parmesan… but Parma is above all a city of art with a peaceful atmosphere, where it makes good strolls in the historic centre between Piazza Garibaldi and the Duomo.
