Emilia Romagna, Top Destination in Italy for Golf, Art & Gastronomy
The region takes its name from Via Emilia, the ancient Roman road that joins the Adriatic Sea to the great northern plane running from Rimini to Piacenza: an area nestled between the Apennines, the River Po and the Adriatic which, over time, has preserved a rich heritage of traditions, customs and history.
Parma, Bologna, Ferrara, Ravenna, and all of the region’s other cities of art are renowned destinations for cultural tourism, locations whose history can be experienced in the architecture of stately palaces and is depicted by the walls that define the city’s geometry.
However, Emilia-Romagna is also famous for sea and fun. With more than 100km of beaches filled with hotels, restaurants, night clubs, cinemas and theatres, it is the Italian Riviera and, together with its theme parks, water parks and sea parks, it offers entertainment to suit all tastes.
Those seeking relaxation and well-being can pamper themselves at more than 20 spa facilities situated throughout the area, from the hills of Parma up to the sea of Rimini and Riccione. And those who love nature have two national parks, 14 regional parks, 15 natural reserves as well as numerous state reserves and wetlands at their disposal.
The winter Apennines offer skiers more than 250km of groomed trails to enjoy from Piacenza to Romagna, while in the summer you can explore on foot, by mountain bike, by canoe and kayak. Along the 15 ‘Roads of Wine and Flavours’, food lovers will find more than 1,000 stops amid farms, winemakers, cheesemakers, ham producers, farmhouses and artisan workshops.
And along the Via Emilia, motorsport lovers can get to know the truth behind the many stories created in the world-famous Motor Valley, from Ferrari to Ducati and Lamborghini and Maserati.
