Famous for culture and food creations.
The landscape of Emilia-Romagna is shaped by the Po plain in the northern border and centre, by the Apennines in the soth border and by long and sandy beaches of Adriatic Sea on the east border.

Bacchus the godness of wine and food, must have lived here!The Province Emilia-Romagna is in the north of Italy and is the first province after the Alps Mountains with the typical Italian flair. The north of the Emilia is shaped by the plain valley of the Po river. The pork specialities are based here, even the famous Lambrusco wine which is a sweet wine from this region.

Neighbour regions/States (map)
In the north and west the Emilia touches the Lombardia. In southwest Liguria and Piemonte. In the south behind the Appenines Range is the romantic Toscana (Tuscany).In the southeast the Emilia touches the Marche and the east is bordered by the Adriatic Sea, where the famous holiday cities Rimini and Riccione are. This areas seems to be relicts from the germany tourism onslaught from the 50s to the 80s but are still lively, especially for locals. In northeast it borders with the province Veneto. The capital of this province is Bologna, where many countries offers consulates. The embassies are located in Rome. In Modena the famous Masseratti and Ferrari cars are built. The course of Imola is only few minutes away. Here is the home of the "Balsamico di Modena" a vinegar speciality, which has a very large tradition and needs many many years to develop its unique taste. In the area of Bologna and Modena a fried bred is eaten. It's called "Gnocco fritto" and is served with different cheeses like Stracchino, Parmegiano and ham specialities like "Prosciutto di Parma" (Parma ham) or "Cula" (salted pork), which origin is a village named Zibrello. If you order this, you'll get a good overview of Emilian gastronomy. To try every culinary speciality offered here, you must stay a long time or return many times. The Italian kitchen is simple, uncomplicated and the search for extreme tastes.

Top Things to See and Do
The Po-plain became within the last twenty years a very important agricultural and economic region and became rich and very expensive, too.
The most important places to visit are:
Bologna and its monuments (Nettuno fountain), churches (St. Petronio, 7 churches of St. Stefano), museums (Museo Archeologico) and palaces (Palazzo Re Enzo). There are also an interesting (former) jewish quarter and the oldest university of Europe.
Another interesting city ot visit is Ravenna where you can find the most important Byzantium churches and mosaics in the country.
Ferrara has a beautiful centre (Unesco's site) and some important palace to see (Palazzo Schifanoia - great frescoes and Palazzo dei Diamanti - often houses important exhibits). In the hinterland there is the natural park of Po, with typical swamps and passing lake birds.
Who likes the "Don Camillo and Peppone" movies, must visit the village "Brescello" in the north of "Reggio nell´Emilia" close to the river Po, where these movies have been recorded in the 50ies and early 60ies. In Brescello is a museum where the original requisites can be seen. If you don´t know this movies, maybe you should watch them before you visit Italy- to have a more or less realistic impression. In the time this film was made, the Italian folks decided against the Kingdom and the Republic Italy was founded. After that, the political orientation was very unclear. There was a very strong communistic movement, which wanted to found a socialistic Republic. But the the strong catholic church was oriented to western democracy and was able to influent the people to decide for. Many things you can find in Italy is shaped by this time and in Brescello, this spirit is still living.
Rimini, Riccione, Cesenatico, Milano Marittima, Marina di Ravenna ... these are only some of the most known beaches of the Adriatic Sea. Here nightlife is really lively and rich and can be easy-going or snobish according to the place you choose to go.
In the Apennines Range you can skiing in winter and have beautiful trekking in sunny seasons.
Moreover, thanks to its central location, from Emilia-Romagna is easy to reach other regions, being Bologna the most important railway station in the country. From Bologna you can reach Florence in 1 hour, Venice and Milan in less than 2 hours by train or by car.

Who is coming? badi from Poland is coming on 24-th October. I need to get from Milano to Piacenza and maybe staying there for one night. Then I go to Groppovisdomo, south from Piacenza. Maybe you could help me with advice or hospitality accomodation? :)
