Reggio Emilia

Overview

Culture, nature and food and wine tradition

The province of Reggio-Emilia is the destination par excellence when one thinks of a weekend away. Culture, nature and food and wine traditions make this area a unique place and certainly rich in opportunities.

Reggio-Emilia is located about 50 kilometres from Bologna in the centre of the Po Valley. Known as the City of the Tricolour, as the birthplace of the Italian flag, it has a very elegant historic centre and a quality of life with few equals in Italy. Here, the most futuristic buildings are designed by Calatrava, you can get around by bike or on foot and there is no shortage of things to see. Seeing the many squares is a must, the Temple of the Beata Vergine della Ghiara and the Panizzi Library, hold your heads up, as the ceilings are magnificent. At the gates of the city, the Pista del Crostolo, a green route ideal for cycling, jogging or relaxing walks, begins.

Don't miss a visit to the Matildic castles of Canossa, Rossena and Bianello. Plan a trip to the Po River and visit the Don Camillo and Peppone Museum in Brescello, a place of pilgrimage for lovers of black and white films. Correggio, a prestigious small Renaissance court, and Scandiano with the evocative Rocca dei Boiardo are among the not-to-be-missed stops.

The table cannot be complete without cappelletti reggiani or caplètt, Parmigiano Reggiano and Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, as well as erbazzone, rice cake and a glass of Lambrusco wine.
