Panoramica costa test


You can find everything in Emilia Romagna, in every season: from the beaches to the mountains of the Apennines, from the towns to the tiny medieval villages, from the baths to the temples of taste. In the county town, Bologna, there is the oldest university of the Western world as well as the cathedral of St. Petronius and the two leaning towers, the Garisenda and the tower of Little Donkeys (Torre degli Asinelli) to remember the important families that in the Middle Ages used to compete by building high towers in order to state their economic power. The museums are among the best in Italy.

In Ferrara, the stones tell the story of a little duchy that has a leading role in the history of art and in the Italian culture. In Parma the attractions that must absolutely be visited are the Roman Cathedral and its dome with frescos by Correggio, the Church of Madonna della Steccata – with paintings by Parmigianino -, the Ducal Palace, the Farnese Theatre dating back to the XVIIth century and the museums of Pilotta palace. Piacenza shows ancient origins and its historical centre is Piazza dei Cavalli (the square of the horses) and the town hall dating back to the XIIIth century is wonderful too in its Lombard-Gothic style, the same of the Cathedral and of the Churches of Sant’Antonino and San Savino.

 Apart from Ferrari and its very exciting formula one circuits, Modena shows Piazza Grande (Major Square) with the Cathedral and the Ghirlandina Tower, the symbol of the town, followed by the baroque church of St. Peters, the Ducal palace and the Palace of Museums. In Reggio Emilia a number of minor jewels of architecture decorate a route along the town walls with its medieval structure. Ravenna, together with Rome, is the town that keeps the most of monuments from the early Middle Ages. But it is also the capital of Byzantine art, represented by the mosaics of sacred buildings. The 110 kilometres of coasts feature a typical student atmosphere where entertainment and leisure activities are assured twenty four hours a day: along the Riviera, days never end, lost in the thousands lights that bright the night and in the music of trendy clubs.
