Emilia Romagna, located in northern Italy, is a region renowned for its rich culinary traditions, vibrant culture, and stunning landscapes. It is home to some of Italy’s most iconic cities, including Bologna, known as “La Grassa” (the Fat), for its delicious cuisine, and Ravenna, famous for its Byzantine mosaics. Visitors to Emilia Romagna can explore charming medieval towns, such as Ferrara and Modena, with their well-preserved historic centres and impressive architecture.
