About Emilia Romagna

All our Emilia Romagna Collections:

Emilia Romagna is a region of beautiful Northern Italian countryside which runs all the way to the Adriatic in a band across Italy. This is an ideal region for a rural escape, with exceptionally good food, enriching rural views and some extremely beautiful towns and cities. Our pick of the best places to stay in Emilia Romagna cater to all tastes and budgets, whether you're here for a city break, beach break or exploring the countryside.

Once the Roman road, the Aemilia, ran through this green and gently undulating part of Italy, between the River Po and the Appennines, and that’s where the name came from. Emilia Romagna might also be known to you as the home of both Ferrari and Lamborghini, of Parma ham, Parmigiano Reggiano and balsamic vinegar, of the Adriatic Riviera, of Verdi and Pavarotti, of Italy’s largest theme park and of numerous Heritage Listed churches, abbeys, palaces and piazzas.

Obviously the food is a huge draw for Emilia Romagna, but the countryside is impossible to export, and is less well known. We all know Tuscany is beautiful, but the Tuscan Romagna region, roughly between Florence and Forli is one of the most unspoiled parts with some wonderfully peaceful hilltop villages and the Parco del Casentino, one of the most important woodland reserves in the Appennine Mountains.

If you fancy a city break then don’t discount Emilia Romagna, just because its countryside is so beautiful.

Parma with its food, fashion, beautiful old cobbled streets and dramatic architecture is a great city break option. Most of Parma's highlights are within a leisurely walking distance of the centre of town, with just a little more effort required to reach the attractions on the far side of the river. You'll find cycling is popular, so join in if you fancy. Otherwise just admire the attitude of folk who'll cycle in Prada.

Parma has real Italian style, in summer the air wafts with classical music - this is Verdi's home - and people sip brightly coloured aperitivos on Via Farini - and in winter there are numerous cosy cafes and restaurants in which to escape from the dazzling splendour of the white light and architecture.

Modena and Bologna are also good possibilities, Bologna with its artistic centre and its beautiful towers and porticoes, and Modena for its medieval and renaissance architecture and World Heritage Listed centre.

Or, if you fancy a beach break then Rimini, Italy’s Adriatic Riviera, might be ideal. This is a very Italian resort, but also a historically significant spot too, known for its Roman relics and excellent food.

The best places to stay in Emilia Romagna are broad like its attractions. And we've everything covered here from chic modern seaside glamour to rustic agriturismi and historic castles.
