All roads lead to Rome, as they say… But where do you go when you’ve done it all? And if you’re already been to Florence, Tuscany, Venice, Milan, Verona, Piedmont, Amalfi or Sicily? You get lost. And getting lost can take you to unsuspected places of wonder. This is exactly what happened to us in… Emilia-Romagna!

This province in the upper Eastern part of Italy didn’t make it to our selection of “regions you will visit this year“. Nor is it on top of the guidebooks on Italy. But there you are, in some of the deepest countryside of this country with an incredible array of authentic culinary, cultural and artistic experiences.

Embark with us on a visual journey between Parma, Bologna, Modena and Rimini with the selection of photos below.
